About Us  


The Boys & Girls Club of Geneva, Inc, established in 1995, opened its doors at the Goodman Street Facility to the youth of Geneva on September 30, 1996. In 2002, the Club opened the Castle Street Teen Center to serve teens in downtown Geneva.  Then in 2009, the club opened the Geneva Community Center and relocated the Teen Center there just yards away from the Geneva Middle School and High School.


The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Geneva is to connect and empower all people in our community, especially young people who need us most, to reach their full potential.
