East Scarborough Boys and Girls Club

Community Benefit


East Scarborough Boys and Girls Club (also known as BGC East Scarborough) has been serving communities since 1956. Each year the Club provides service to over 6,000 children and youth in over 19 locations throughout the East Scarborough community. Our Club strives to meet the changing needs of our community so, over the years we have evolved from offering primarily recreational programming to utilizing a determined approach towards providing accessible quality social, educational and recreational programming through our Early Years Services, Licensed Child Care Services, Inclusion Services, Children & Early Teen Services, and Youth Services.

We have a long history and much experience serving racialized communities and strive to meet the changing needs of the people we serve. As a community service agency, we always seek to provide a holistic approach as it supports children, youth and families to pursue healthy lifestyles, personal competency, self-esteem, social and cultural integration and a sense of belonging.

Our vision is to serve children, youth, and families residing in underserved areas of East Scarborough (Kingston-Galloway-Orton Park). Through quality programs and services focusing on culture and arts, education, mentorship, life skills and more, we hope that the Club can enable our children and youth to grow into healthy, engaged, and successful members of society.

Our Impact

We have spent the years building creditability and trust with the BIPOC communities. Globally countries are moving in the direction of pushing their youth to be ready to take advantage of the new and emerging economies. Our goal is to build on our historical accomplishes and create an ecosystem of problem solvers and innovators to actively participate as change makers for the opportunities here and to come.

The Club serves a multiethnic community comprising of visible minorities and racialized children and youth of the following subgroups which include but is not limited to the African diaspora, Indigenous, and South Asian. With such a diverse community, our agency remains intentional in creating and delivering quality programs and services that are inclusive and reflective of the community we serve.
