To inspire and enable young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.

                       The Positive Place for Kids


From arts and sports to career exploration and leadership skills, Boys & Girls Clubs offer a variety of programs that are both safe and fun. Since 3-6pm is the time of day when children are usually unsupervised, BGC's run their programs after school. In addition, the BGC of NCC runs after school programs out of all 4 Elementary Schools in Dunkirk, NY.

        A message from the Board President- Jack D'Agostino

"Northern Chautauqua County has many reasons to be proud. Situated on the shores of Lake Erie, our region is full of potential and seems poised for growth. There continues to be positive signs regarding the much- anticipated Athenex project and activity on the Dunkirk waterfront has brought plenty of excitement. At our club, we take pride in the region's achievements and look toward the future with our youth. Our Club, in its 25th year, continues to grow in membership and who we are serving. We partner with Silver Creek for after-school programs in addition to Dunkirk. Our board of Directors, staff and Executive Director Anneliese Bruegel are committed to this community and its youth."
