We will continue to grow in an effort to serve as many kids as possible, as effectively as possible. As a recognized leader in the BGCA movement nationwide and in Indiana, we will create change and lasting impact for all youth.


  • Broader reach to affordable youth programs

  • Renewed outreach to teens

  • New options for learning in support of great futures

Through these initiatives we will address our current waitlist of 625 and grow to serve more than 5,000 youth by the end of 2025.

In partnership with the United Way of St. Joseph County, we are developing three community centers to create access to health and social services all under one roof. Within each center will be a Club site that will serve 150 kids.

We will expand our reach with the creation of a Teen Center at the former Temple Beth-el building in downtown South Bend. The building will house a Future Lab, collaborative space where students can access state-of-the-art technology and manufacturing equipment. In collaboration with Career Academy South Bend, this career exploration program will give our Club kids across all sites access to high-quality, work-based learning opportunities.

Success Academy at our Sample Street location will open in the fall of 2023 for 150 students. The school will use a co-teaching model and curricula emphasizing project-based learning and STEM for K-5 students. We will continue to operate after school Club services, and add Before Care to this site.

A new RV will provide Club kids from all sites with mobile project-based learning.Technology onboard will include a 3D printer and carving machine.

Our vision is for the OC campus to expand to better serve and meet the needs of Club families and surrounding community, complementing services provided down the street at the Southeast Neighborhood Center.


Through our strategic partnerships with the City of South Bend and Foundry Field, we have the opportunity to connect our Club to other neighboring projects on the Southeast side, including a new park and baseball field.


Effective now, the Boys & Girls Club of White County is under our umbrella. We will support and provide oversight for their high-quality programming that currently serves more than 300 kids each year.




Our vision is to ensure kids in every county across the state have access to Club programs. To that end, we are moving forward to explore opening Club sites in additional counties in North Central Indiana, including Fulton, Starke, and Pulaski.
