For 100 years, the Union League Boys & Girls Clubs have served the after-school development needs of Chicago’s disadvantaged youth at 12 locations including a 247 acre camp in Wisconsin. Today, ULBGC provides programming centered on academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles to nearly 15,000 youth from the Chicago neighborhoods of Pilsen, Humboldt Park, the Near West Side, Englewood, Bucktown, and South Lawndale. Our 12 Club locations offer programs such as homework help and tutoring, arts-focused instruction, sports and physical activity, STEM instruction and robotics, and critical mentorships. Youth also receive a hot meal every day and in 2018 we served over 300,000 meals. With each day structured with a comprehensive rotation of programs, Club members experience a well-rounded approach meant to enhance their learning and growth as individuals during after-school hours.
