History

We have a long history of building better futures.

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.

In September of 2004, through the generous support of the Reno/Sparks community, transformed our East Ninth Street facility into the 80,000 square foot Donald W. Reynolds Facility that it is today.

Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows Today

Today, the Club runs a total of 32 sites throughout northern Nevada, including the Donald W. Reynolds Facility on East Ninth Street and the William N. Pennington Facility on Foster Drive in Reno and sites in Ely, Fernley, and Winnemucca. We also provide developmental programming for youth ages 0-5 at our four Early Learning Centers.

Our transportation program provides upwards of 90,000 bus rides from local schools to our Club sites, and our food program serves 400,000- 600,000 meals to our members every year. In an effort to keep our services as affordable as possible, Club membership costs just $20 per year, even though we invest nearly $3,000 annually into each of our members.
