OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH THE SALVATION ARMY

For more than a century, Boys & Girls Clubs have helped put young people on the path to great futures. For over 50 years now, The Salvation Army and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America have teamed up in the promotion of youth development services in the United States. For many of those years, this association existed principally on local and regional levels. Both organizations are now national in scope, each having substantial responsibilities to communities all across our nation. Through this partnership, more than 4 million boys and girls have been served in over 3,400 Club locations throughout the country.
