Thank You for Your Support!

Thank you to our sponsors and partners for their enthusiasm and generosity to reach kids, families, and communities all throughout Indiana!


Multi-year statewide strategic planning and implementation was made possible by support from Lilly Endowment Inc. through Boys & Girls Clubs of America

Serve Indiana

Serve Indiana has supported Boys & Girls Clubs in Indiana through AmeriCorps and the Indiana Kids program. In 2020-2021 we had 136 AmeriCorps members working on Project ACES with our Boys & Girls Clubs all throughout Indiana.

Indiana Department of Education

The Indiana Department of Education provides support through the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). Through these programs, children and adults attending Boys & Girls Clubs in Indiana receive nutritious meals and snacks throughout the school year and summer months.

The 21st Century Community Learning Center Program supports the creation of community learning centers that provide academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours for youth, particularly youth who attend high-poverty and low-performing schools. The program helps youth meet state and local student standards in core academic subjects, offers youth a broad array of enrichment activities that help their social, emotional, and behavioral development; and offers literacy and other educational services to the families of participating youth.

Using ESSER III funding, the R.E.A.C.H Grant Program aims to increase access to high-quality out-of-school time programming for economically disadvantaged youth with opportunities for academic achievement, character enrichment, and other activities designed to complement the youth’s regular academic program and social-emotional development. This grant opportunity is designed to provide funding for a year-round, high-quality out-of-school time program.

Indiana State Department of Health

The Indiana State Department of Health supports Indiana Boys & Girls Clubs through our healthy lifestyles programs. These programs include SMART Girls, Date SMART, SMART Moves, Passport to Manhood, and other programs to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being. Currently, three programs are funded through support of the Indiana State Department of Health: 1. Changing the Map (Teen Pregnancy Prevention), 2. SMART: Emotional Wellness, and 3. SMART: LGBTQ+.

Indiana Kids

The Indiana Kids program is funded with support from the Indiana General Assembly and the Indiana Department of Child Services. The Indiana Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs has been operating the Indiana Kids program since January 2006. Through the years we have served over 75,000 youth in 54 different counties. Through Indiana Kids, we have been able to provide education, youth development, and career exploration services to Indiana youth.

Ivy Tech Community College

For Youth of the Year, Ivy Tech Community College donates a semester of tuition for each participant, plus one full year for the Indiana Youth of the Year winner.

Indiana Learns

Indiana Learns is a Statewide enrichment grant program supporting reading and math growth for eligible young Hoosiers by funding tutoring in a variety of settings. Approved Clubs administer the micro-grant program enabling eligible Club families demonstrating both financial and academic need to access up to $1,000 to use toward the cost of high-dosage math and reading tutoring in a safe and supportive out-of-school environment. The opportunity is being made possible by the State of Indiana and the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) which in 2022 selected The Mind Trust, an Indianapolis-based education nonprofit organization, as a partner to operate the Indiana Learns program.
