One text, click or call can make a world of difference for kids in your community. Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale presents the One in a Million fundraising challenge, where every donation up to $1 million will be matched by Ellie and Michael Ziegler to help build a teen center and full gymnasium at the Thunderbirds Branch and revitalize the teen center and build a half gymnasium at the Vestar Branch. These facilities give kids a safe place to play, learn and be part of a community that empowers their future.
Our vision is to ensure that as our young people grow into their teen years, we have given them every opportunity to become all they aspire to be. Success is within reach for every young person who enters our doors.
It is important for teens to have their own space to feel independent with access to resources and experiences that expose them to a world of opportunities.
Teen centers provide safe after-school and summer experiences that empower teens (ages 13-18) to find their passions, accomplish goals and take control of their futures.
