Home Club



More than 105,000 economically disadvantaged Austin area youth lack free or affordable programming after school each day, during summer and other out-of-school times.

That’s why Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area is committed to closing the gap between the number of kids we currently serve and those in need of our services. Our new flagship Home Club on the Sheth Family Campus will help us meet this commitment by expanding opportunities to serve vulnerable youth and families in East Austin and throughout our local area.

Opened in April 2019, the 32,000-square-foot facility is the center of the 10-acre Sheth Family Campus, named in recognition of a multi-million-dollar, as well as sustaining donations from Adria and Brian Sheth, founders of the Sheth Sangreal Foundation. It can serve an additional 1,000+ kids in East Austin each year, providing a place for families to gather and grow together. It will address real challenges facing youth in East Austin and is a critical component in reaching the young people who need us most, more often and with greater impact.

With the opening of the Home Club, we’re celebrating 51 years of creating great futures in the Austin area – and building the foundation for 51 more. We’ve seen what our programs can do for the youth who need us most, and are determined to answer more of the unmet need.

Facilities house a STEM learning center, library, recording studio, art and movement studios, teen center, and indoor and outdoor athletic facilities. The indoor athletic facility is named in recognition of St. David’s Foundation for a $1 million donation to fund development. An additional $1 million was provided by an anonymous donor. For the first time, our administrative offices, located on the second floor of the Home Club, are in the same space with the youth we serve, building our capacity to innovate and expand our programs.


Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area is on the front lines responding to urgent challenges facing local youth and their families. We know that when a Boys & Girls Club moves into a neighborhood, risky behaviors decline and school attendance and grades improve.

Thousands of kids in our community lack adult supervision and meaningful, positive things to do during their most vulnerable hours: 3 to 7 p.m. after school and during other out-of-school times. Our Club programs fill kids’ empty, unsupervised hours with academic support, leadership and healthy living skills, meals, physical activity, positive adult role models, and social connections with peers – a place to belong. Clubs provide a chance to succeed and essential skills to thrive in school, work, and life.

We know it’s making a difference:

Youth served by Boys & Girls Club on average have higher school attendance, grades, graduation rates, and college enrollment, compared with their peers. In fact, 99 percent of all high school senior Club members in Austin in the past three years graduated on time, compared to 89 percent statewide and 90 percent among AISD seniors.

Youth in our programs also have lower rates of substance abuse, aggressive behavior, and school suspension, compared to peers who attend the same school but don’t attend a Boys & Girls Club. Additionally, thousands of our Club youth have broken out of the cycle of poverty, been first in their family to graduate from college, established meaningful careers and started families of their own, and become leaders in their communities. The stories are incredible.

This is why 54 percent of alumni nationally say: “Boys & Girls Clubs saved my life.” We are a nurturing, inspiring presence every day for vulnerable kids in the greater Austin area.





We thank these contributors for their generous support for the development of our new Home Club, without which we could not continue expanding to meet the needs of the Austin area’s most vulnerable youth and families.
