The Boys & Girls Clubs of America has long recognized the value of local Boys & Girls Clubs working collectively to further the mission of enabling as many young people as possible to become caring, responsible citizens. Under the leadership of the BGCA’s Office of Government Relations, state alliances were developed to serve as a single, influential force representing a collective body of local Boys & Girls Clubs. State alliances and their leadership work to secure state funding and other resources to benefit the needs of the member organizations. State alliances are considered separate but operate in partnership with local Area Councils to achieve the purposes outlined above.
Our Mission and Vision
The mission of the Florida Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs is to secure statewide funding and resources for member organizations to help them enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
The Florida Alliance, and local partnering Clubs in Florida, envision a future in which the Boys & Girls Clubs of Florida are a catalyst for success that is in reach of every child and that whole generations of children are inspired to a higher level of community engagement.
As such, the Florida Alliance seeks to secure resources for Florida’s Boys & Girls Clubs as they work to positively impact the lives of Club members, with an emphasis on garnering resources and partnerships that successfully influence academic achievement, life aspirations and juvenile crime reduction. The Florida Alliance also acts as a responsible steward of government and private funding, designing and implementing accountability standards and measures that ensure effective program administration within the state’s Clubs.
