Our Centre location at 200 East Lake Crescent offers a wide variety of programs, services, and resources for youth and teens in grade 7-12, where we prioritize meeting the needs and interests of our members, the community, and the youth and teens we see.
The Centre and its programs provide youth and teens with a safe and inclusive, environment where they can be themselves, discover their interests, build their self esteem and confidence, create new relationships, make new friends, and be exposed to positive role models.
We offer youth and teens registered evening programs, as well as free after school drop in. Please see our newsletter for more information on program times and descriptions!
The Boys and Girls Club of Airdrie is extremely grateful to have received the President's Choice Basic Needs - Brighter Futures grant.
The grant has provided us with the opportunity to enhance and extend our current nutrition programming for Youth and Teens at the BGCA Centre. Through our programs, youth and teens will learn basic and foundational cooking and kitchen skills, as well as supplementary skills and knowledge such as food safety, food preparation, meal planning on a budget, shopping on a budget, making good choices, positive and healthy lifestyles, etc.
The Basic Needs - Brighter Futures grant has allowed us to take basic and fundamental skills kitchen and nutritional skills and combine them with supplementary skills and knowledge. This exposes our youth and teens to a more well rounded approach to cooking and healthy/nutritional ways of life that we desire for them to adopt.
