About Boys & Girls Club of Jefferson County

Our Club offers a safe and enjoyable alternative for kids when schools are closed, ensuring they are not home alone. With a commitment since 1954 to serving the youth in Madison, IN, our programs run during after-school hours, holiday breaks, and summer break, catering to over 130 youth daily. We pride ourselves on three core program areas – Healthy Lifestyles, Academic Success, and Good Character & Active Citizenship. At our Club, we believe in diverse approaches to help kids succeed, relying on caring mentors, a consistent and safe environment, and innovative, quality programs. We go above and beyond to do whatever it takes to ensure all kids have a great future.
