You Can Help Build a Better Community

BGC Greater Saint John is a registered charity/non-profit that provides over 2,100 children and youth in 5 at-risk neighbourhoods across the city with a safe space during the most vulnerable hours of the day, and FREE access to life-changing programs in five key programming pillars that are purposefully designed to drive personal development:

Why support the BGC Greater Saint John:

  • Your support stays local and supports those who are most in need
  • BGC Greater Saint John has the greatest reach and impact on children and youth in the city. Annually, our organization sees over 2,100 young people & this number continues to grow.
  • 38.4% (over $650,000) of the Club’s annual revenue currently comes from individual and corporate donors. As the demand for Club resources in our community continues to grow, and public sector funding is cut back and minimum wages increase, the need for private funding is greater than ever.
  • Just 15% of funds raised goes to cover administration costs. This means 85% goes directly to program delivery.

Barrier-Free Access

BGC Greater Saint John invests in the Saint John community by elevating tomorrow’s generation. BGC Greater Saint John is the only afterschool youth services organization providing barrier-free access to:
  • Safe, open and readily accessible facilities in seven vulnerable locations across the city plus a summer camp
  • A multitude of quality development programs designed to empower youth to reach their full potential and give them confidence and skills for life
  • Inclusivity and openness to all regardless of race, religion, social or economic status
  • Structured programs tailored to support working families and the community’s needs
  • Regularly available, structured, supervised group environments
  • Passionate and highly skilled staff
  • Carefully screened and devoted volunteers
