At BGC Greater Saint John, we strive for community excellence through a grassroots programming approach. This approach allows us to build better communities alongside our Club Members to support them from childhood well into their adult lives. Together with our amazing supporters, donors, and Club Community, we will ensure that no child or youth is left behind.
Welcome to BGC Greater Saint John – your Club Community!
“I feel like BGC Greater Saint John has given me the opportunity to challenge myself to become someone that needed when I was younger. I was encouraged to reach new heights, and they allowed me to feel like I was someone who could actually achieve my dreams. The Club has given me so much, and I cannot say how much everyone here means to me.”
“BGC Greater Saint John has allowed me to take the time to better understand the issues that are happening in our city and how they effect LGBTQ+ communities. I think that because Club has always been so accepting and caring for everyone that I feel comfortable enough to express myself and truly be who I am. The staff care, and they support us for who we are, who we will be, and they let us follow our dreams.”
“My Club lets me work on my skills to make me a better hockey player. Here I learned more about teamwork, good sportsmanship, and making sure that everyone feels safe, supported, and happy to be at the Club! My Club has taught me so much, and I am so happy to be here everyday – I wouldn’t miss it for the world!”
“BGC Greater Saint John always makes sure that everyone is welcomed, accepted, and feels confident in themselves and their abilities. At my Club, I can be a leader, and I can learn new things that will help me when I am older. Without support from my Club, I don’t think I would have learned so many cool things at such a young age, and I don’t feel I would be as confident in my own abilities. I am lucky to be a Club Kid!
