Who We Serve

We are Austin’s leading youth development agency—a 501(c)(3) non-profit, locally governed agency devoted to providing hope and opportunity to all kids, especially those who need us most, between the ages of 6 and 18. With 33 locations in Travis and Bastrop Counties, we help over 7,500 registered members each year (and more than 2,300 each day) grow into healthy, responsible, caring young adults.

BGCAA is ideally positioned to assist youth in improving their educational and social skills, physical health and fitness, and emotional well-being.

We strive to create a positive environment that supports learning new skills and contributing to society. Our programs are designed to provide kids and teens with quality out-of-school-time programming when they might otherwise risk being unsupervised, or participate in risky, unhealthy or unsafe activities.
