Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida
Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida's mission is to inspire and enable all youth, especailly those from disadvantaged circumstances, to reach thier full potential as productive, responsible, caring citizens. In 2016, our three Brevard Branches served a total of 550 youth from the Mims, Cocoa and Temple Terrace communities: 80% came from single-parent families; 96% were eligible for free or reduced school lunch; and 90% came from families with annual household incomes of $30,000 or less.
During 2016, Boys & Girls Clubs paid off in Brevard County:
-Our Brevard Branch members are surrounded by crime, yet there were NO arrests among members at either Club.
-There were NO pregnancies among the female members ages 10-18.
-100% of Brevard Branch members who were high school seniors graduated.
