Since 1970, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota and DeSoto Counties have played an important role in the surrounding community, providing daily services and programs to thousands of Florida’s youth. Their mission is to enable all young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible individuals. The Boys & Girls Clubs aim to provide a world-class experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who walks through their doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a future plan in place. The Club’s vision is for each member to demonstrate good character and citizenship, while living a healthy and happy lifestyle.
