Our mission is to enable all young people to reach their full potential as responsible citizens through education, recreation, and positive community experiences in partnership with the Grand Rapids Police Department.


To provide a world class Camp and Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.

What They'll

Every kid has oodles of potential. Sometimes, all they need is a little direction, love, and leadership. At four locations, across the community, that’s what we provide.

At Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth, we see a brighter future. One where today’s vulnerable youth become tomorrow’s leaders. At our Clubs and Camp, could becomes will, maybe becomes definitely, and Grand Rapids becomes a better place.
