About Us

About Us:

The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows is all about creating a place where every kid feels safe and connected: a place to belong and a place to become. This is that place for over 13,000 youth in 30+ locations across Reno, Sparks, Fernley, Ely, and Winnemucca. We are a place for kids to go before and after school, during school breaks, and during the summer to grow beyond the classroom. We help kids and teens achieve great futures by providing a safe and fun space, an engaging Club experience, and caring professionals to guide them along the way.

Core Values:

One of the reasons the Boys & Girls Club is different from other out-of-school programs is that we are all about providing special, structured programming around our Club’s core values.

Character & Leadership Development
Sports Fitness & Recreation
Health & Life Skills

This specialized and structured learning helps our members develop skill sets and knowledge in areas not addressed at school or in some homes. By teaching these specific values, we are creating a place for our members to become the best version of themselves. We teach financial literacy, the value of volunteerism, self-care, and hygiene, and so much more. The Club brings in community partners in art, STEM, finance, and safety to inspire and further enrich the programming we offer our members.


We also act as a resource center for our families and the community. Free meals and basic needs supplies are provided to all those who need these resources. We proudly offer college scholarships to teens, and no youth is ever turned away from the Club due to an inability to pay.

Finally, the Club is home to several sports leagues, including Teeny Tots (soccer basketball, T-ball, and gymnastics) for 3-5-year-olds, K-8th grade boys and girls’ basketball, flag football, specialized sports clinics, and more!

The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows was founded in 1976. The first Club occupied a facility just south of the intersection of Terminal Way and East Plumb Lane in Reno. In late 1981 the current facility opened on East Ninth Street.

Our Clubs are filled with amazing stories. These are the stories of Club members who have overcome incredible obstacles to find success, of parents and caregivers who are thankful that there’s a safe place where kids can go after school, of community members who were able to find assistance at the Club when they couldn’t […]

The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows has full-time, professional leadership, supplemented by part-time workers and volunteers.

At the Boys & Girls Club, we all strive to live by a set of very simple but powerful values. We ask all staff and Club members to always Be GREAT.
