    BGCM serves more than 9,000 Maui County youth annually through its six clubhouses located throughout Maui and with its outreach programs.

    Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui, Inc., is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization that operates drop-in service facilities that provide “a safe, supportive, non-judgmental, nurturing and supervised environment where youth ages 9 to 17 years old can be themselves, experience positive role models and learn the values and skills that promote success.”

    The Mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui is to: “inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.”

    Not just after-school hangouts, organization representatives describe clubhouses as a “safe and positive place where young people come to have fun, learn, do homework, develop social skills, express themselves creatively, and participate in sports.”

    “Our young members develop a sense of belonging and connection to the club,” organization leaders said.  “At Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui, we believe that success is within reach of every young person who walks through the doors of our clubs.”
