Boys & Girls Club of Dundee Township
Open to any youth from Dundee Township, ages 7-18 years
At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township (BGGDT), we believe that every young person deserves to live a life filled with hope and opportunity. In Carpentersville, more than 1,500 youth participate at six (6) Club Unit locations on an annual basis, throughout the year. For 15 years BGCDT has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social, and family circumstances. Over 60% of the Club members we serve reside in households with $15,000 or less income, which is considered below poverty standards in our country.
Our membership fees are only $25 a year, providing affordable afterschool programs, including a daily supper and snack at each of our BCGDT Unit locations, five days per week, over 240 days per year. In addition to after-school programs the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dundee Township also offer youth athletic basketball and soccer leagues and all-day Summer Programming.
