Boys & Girls Clubs in Indiana (BGCIN) was formed in 2016 as a 501 (c)(3) organization in efforts to manage and implement additional funding that requires the 501 (c)(3) designation and to expand service opportunities throughout Indiana. BGCIN represents all 36 Boys & Girls Club organizations from across Indiana.
BGCIN provides programmatic oversight for our AmeriCorps program that includes over 160 AmeriCorps State (state competitive funded) members who serve within Clubs throughout Indiana. Our programs have been successful in the recruitment and retention of AmeriCorps members as well as addressing youth development issues related to education and healthy lifestyles through programs and activities at local Boys & Girls Clubs.
Our Project ACES (Accelerating Children through Education Support) Corps program serves members throughout Indiana where they serve with at-risk youth in education and healthy lifestyles programming. This program has served 2,663 AmeriCorps members from 2008-18. These Corps members have served with 20,913 volunteers who have provided 142,957 hours of volunteer service back to the local Club and community with AmeriCorps member support.
