A Message from the President:
On behalf of the Board of Directors, we welcome you to our website.

For more than 70 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Lakeland and Mulberry has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social, and family circumstances. Boys & Girls Club has actively sought to enrich the lives of girls and boys that other youth agencies fail to reach. Boys & Girls Club is dedicated to ensuring that our community’s disadvantaged youngsters have greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures as productive citizens.

Since 1939, we have provided children with a positive place to go, results-oriented programming and a professional staff to guide them.

Last year, Boys & Girls Clubs of Lakeland and Mulberry served more than 2,000 young people through its Clubs, summer sites and outreach programs. We operate 4 full-time Clubs in Central and West Polk County.

A private, nonprofit organization, Boys & Girls Clubs of Lakeland and Mulberry improves young lives as well as the communities that surround and support us. The organization relies upon private, corporate, individual and United Way funding to fill the gap between membership dues and operational expenses.

There are many opportunities that one may consider in furthering our Clubs. Volunteers are always needed to assist in the programs, mentor our youth and work to promote our Clubs.

Please look around this site and let us know how we can help.   


Chris Asbill

President of the Board
