69% of Alumni say a Club saved their life

For over 75 years, BGC Hamilton-Halton (formerly the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hamilton) has removed barriers and created opportunities for all young people, of all backgrounds. We are part of the largest child and youth serving organization in Canada, and locally, we are a leading provider of quality programs for children, youth, adults and families.

Our Clubs are located in neighbourhoods where we are needed most. We emphasize flexible programs based on local needs, the interests of our participants, and the diversity, character and identity of their communities. 


At BGC Hamilton-Halton we remove barriers and create life-changing opportunity for thousands of children and youth in Hamilton and Halton.

We couldn’t do this without your support.

Donors like you help BGC Hamitlon-Halton break down barriers by providing financial assistance to children, youth and their families who need it most, so they can belong to a connected, engaged and healthy community.

We rely on generous donations by individuals, businesses, and community partners to help us make our programs and services accessible for everyone.  With your help, we can remain open to all and ensure that no one is turned away from our services.

Everyone has a role to play, and every gift makes a difference.

We encourage and support every child and youth to play, learn, and grow to achieve their dreams
