General

  • Mission:
  • To provide a safe, supportive place where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life.

  • Overview:
  • The Awesome Auction is a major fundraiser that has raised over $1.4 million dollars in the 20 years of operation. We have a Live auction hosted by local TV and radio personalities and have a silent auction also, all funds going to support programs within the Club.

  • History:
  • The Boys & Girls Club of Ottawa has served the Ottawa community since 1923, reaching out to 4,500 children and youth each year through after-school, weekend and summer programs that build self-esteem and help to develop stronger social skills.

    After-school and weekend hours are a critical time for youth. That time can represent either an opportunity to learn and grow through quality after-school programs or a time of risk to youth's health and safety.

    Experts agree that after-school programs offer a healthy and positive alternative. These programs keep kids safe, improve academic achievement and help relieve the stresses on today's working families. They can serve as an important vehicle to mould kids' attitudes and behaviour to serve both they and their community positively.
