The Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA is headquartered in Roanoke, Virginia and serves over 850 youth across three counties in five site locations.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA is a youth development organization aligned with the national parent organization Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Their mission is “To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.” The annual registration fee is $15/students/academic year; however, they do not turn anyone away because of the lack of payment. The Club provides a safe place for youth to go during those critical after-school hours and provide them with high yield, engaging programs. The Club's focus areas are academic success, good character and leadership and healthy lifestyles. Everyday the Club members are engaged in one hour of academic programming and homework help. The Club provides caring adult staff and volunteers to build positive relationships to mentor their Club members. The Club teaches the importance of being an active community member and 100% of the Club members participate in community service projects.
