20 Years and Counting ...
The year was 1991. The United States was leading her allies to victory in the Gulf War. The Soviet Union was crumbling into oblivion.
In sunny Hobe Sound, Florida, citizens were working together to establish a Boys & Girls Club in Martin County, and soon opened a Club in two small storefronts at a Winn Dixie plaza on Bridge Road.
Twenty years later, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County, with a budget of $2.5 million, is proudly serving nearly 2,000 Club Members six to 18 years of age, helping them
achieve extraordinary things.
BGCMC recently received the award for top overall Boys & Girls Club program in the state by the Florida Area Council for Be READy, an early literacy initiative that the organization designed and created in 2012. Full release here
The new Bill & Barbara Whitman branch in Indiantown is now open for business!
We want to thank everyone who helped us achieve this six-year dream!
The new Club features a full-size gymnasium, performing arts space, learning & technology labs, a kitchen, and plenty of space to build and develop the potential of Indiantown’s most extraordinary asset —its children-- through Education & Career Development, Character Leadership Development, Health & Life Skills, The Arts and Sports, Fitness & Recreation.
