young people to realize their

full potential as productive, 

responsible, and caring citizens.



The Boys & Girls Club of Paris Provides:

-A safe place to learn and grow

-Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals

-Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences

-Hope and opportunity

 The Boys & Girls Club of Paris is a safe place to learn and grow while having fun. It is a place where great futures are started each and every day.

The Boys & Girls Club of Paris was started by Mr. Bently Allen, current board of directors member, with 16 boys playing basketball in the early 1960's. Today, over 500 kids participate in recreation, technology, photography, art, leadership, and sports programs.

Since then, we have led the effort in creating a safe and positive place for children and teens during critical after-school and summer hours. Regardless of where a member comes from or what they are facing outside of the Club walls, we meet kids where they are and work together to help them have the brightest futures possible.
