Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida has been building pillars in the Jacksonville community and across Northeast Florida for over 50 years. Our organization was chartered on July 23, 1962, as the Boys’ Club of Jacksonville and in April 1966, we opened the doors to our first Club, the Laurence F. Lee Club, in Springfield.

On March 21, 1988, as more girls began to join our Clubs, Boys’ Club of Greater Jacksonville changed its legal name to Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida. Today, we provide fun experiences and educational programing to over 8,000 members across 25 locations throughout Duval and St. Johns counties after school.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida is a proud affiliate of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the nation’s most effective youth development organization in the United States.

OUR Vision

To assure that every child graduates on time with a plan for their future, leads a healthy lifestyle and demonstrates good character and leadership.
