Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metro’s mission is to empower all young people, especially those who need us most, to discover their full potential as caring, engaged, responsible community members.
Bottom Line for Portland
Last year, we provided over 6,400 youth with 944 hours of trauma-informed family support services and 157,376 nutritious meals. Youth participated in 174,000 hours of education and career readiness, 95,000 hours of fitness, and 44,000 hours of arts programs. One hundred percent of our high school seniors graduated in 2018.
“My story is similar to so many professional athletes I have met along the way. The Clubs were my home away from home. I owe so much to the Clubs and hold tremendous pride in now being able to give back to the program that has given me so much.” —Terry Porter, former Portland Trail Blazer and NBA All-Star and coach
