We are Austin’s leading youth development agency – a 501(c)(3) non-profit, locally governed agency devoted to providing hope and opportunity to all kids, especially those who need us most, between the ages of 6 and 18. With 29 Clubs here in Austin, we help over 12,000 kids each year (and over 1,700 each day) grow into healthy responsible, caring young adults.

Who we serve
With a high concentration of children of color from limited economic resources, BGCAA is ideally positioned to assist youth in improving their educational and social skills, physical health and fitness and emotional well-being. We strive to create a foundation for a positive peer culture who value learning skills and contribute to society. Our programs are compelling enough to appeal to kids as an alternative to unsupervised, “hanging out” time after school.
