The Boys and Girls Club of Niagara is a good place to learn, play and grow. We offer programs where children and youth can learn new skills,engage in fun, playful activities and experience new opportunities that enable them to grow as individuals. Lead by our caring, well-trained staff, our programs spark curiosity, encourage creativity and foster character building.

At the Boys & Girls Club in Niagara Falls we offer a wide variety of high quality  programs that are as unique as the children and families they serve. Caring for children is our top priority and we fulfill this commitment through the recreational and training opportunities we provide for children, youth, and their families. Our programming and activities help kids and teens stay active, learn new skills, and engage in new opportunities with their peers.Our Supper Club offers children a balanced meal during our  evening  programming and our transportation services make it that much  easier for children to attend our programs. We believe strongly in  encouraging a sense of belonging and inclusivity at our club, which is why we work to make sure each child feels welcome and has an equal opportunity to take part in our programs and services.We see the value in providing a safe space for children to learn and grow, but most of all, to have FUN!

Why Participate in Race for Kids™ in Niagara?

Our centre offers children and youth what they need the most - relationships with positive role models (adults and peers), structure and safety. In providing access to a diverse range of programs that include recreation, play, and training, we offer children and youth the opportunity to acquire new skills and engage in new experiences with their peers, resulting in positive growth and development outcomes. We work hard to speak out on behalf of children, youth and their families to reduce disadvantage, by providing equal opportunities for children and their families to feel encouraged, supported, and motivated to THRIVE! 

By participating in this year’s Race for Kids™, you will be an important part of helping our Club provide equal access to opportunities for growth and development for children and youth in the Niagara Region. Funds raised will go directly back into the Niagara community so that we can continue offering the types of programs our young people need the most.
