    • Accountability: We do what we say and hold each other to the highest standards; we are impeccable stewards of all our resources; and we foster an environment of safety.

    • Respect: We honor diversity and inclusion, treat others with respect, and express gratitude; we embrace alternative ways of thinking.

    • Excellence: We excel in service delivery, rigorously measure impact, and work to continuously improve ourselves and our organization; we are innovative.

    Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida has been building pillars in the Jacksonville community and across Northeast Florida for over 50 years. Our organization was chartered on July 23, 1962, as the Boys’ Club of Jacksonville and in April 1966, we opened the doors to our first Club, the Laurence F. Lee Club, in Springfield.

    On March 21, 1988, as more girls began to join our Clubs, Boys’ Club of Greater Jacksonville changed its legal name to Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida. Today, we provide daily youth development and educational programing to more than 4,800 young people through 48 Clubs in Alachua, Clay, Duval and St. Johns counties after school and during the summer.

    Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida is a proud affiliate of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the nation’s most effective youth development organization in the United States.
