We provide a full schedule of diversified activities for our kids. At BGCN, there’s something for everyone. Our core programs encourage activities with peers, adults and family members that enable kids to build self esteem and fulfill their potential. Programs are tailored to support developmental principles and take into account the following:
- physical health
- emotional well-being
- the safety of all members
- age-appropriate programs
- cultural sensitivity
- social skills and interaction

Our programs help young people develop four essential, empowering traits which build self-esteem and lead to responsible citizenship:
At BGCN, young people experience the pride and confidence that come with mastering new skills.
We help young people understand the satisfaction of doing something of value for others.
Everyone deserves to feel accepted. We make sure our kids feel welcome and at home here.

We believe young people have valuable opinions and possess the power to influence decisions. We help our members understand that their opinions hold merit and teach ways to express opinions responsibly.
