Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metropolitan Area

BIPOC-Led Organization


Boys and Girls Clubs of Portland Metro’s mission is to empower all young people to discover their full potential, especially those who need us most.

Bottom Line for Portland

Since 1946, Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metro have been at the forefront of providing a safe and nurturing space where youth ages 6 to 18 can spend time out of school. We work to inspire children and teens to achieve success in our three core competencies: Sports & Play, STEAM/STEM, and Workforce Readiness. In 2023, we have implemented a strategic and directional framework that is responsive and relevant to the emerging needs of youth and families in marginalized communities. This new strategic vision will empower youth to become next-generation leaders, social change agents, corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, community volunteers, and future thought leaders. 


I grew up as a BGCP Club kid along with my brothers. I was very quiet and shy as a child, and credit the club and the supporting staff for encouraging me to build my confidence and be a voice in my community. I have been a staff member and mentor at BGCP for almost 10 years and now hold a leadership role supporting the community. I have also been an active member of the BGCP Equity Team for five years, supporting BGCP in integrating racial equity at both a cultural and institutional level.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

BGCP commits itself to undoing patterns of injustice in a deliberate and targeted manner, with a particular focus on ethnicity and race. In this ongoing process, we commit to using the principles of equity and inclusion to evaluate and guide our policies, practices, and procedures; to eliminate disparities; and to implement an inclusive process for receiving community input. We aspire to engage our club members in experiential and project-based programming that will build skills and competencies, broaden their horizons, develop growth mindsets, and shape character toward propelling them to levels of success they likely would not have pursued, or been exposed to otherwise. We work to inspire children and teens to achieve success in our three core competencies: Sports & Play, STEAM/STEM, and Workforce Readiness.
