About Us
Founded in 1936, The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs Association of Hong Kong (BGCA) has been established to serve children and youth throughout different eras with its need-specific and community-based services in its comprehensive service network.
In 1930s, there were a lot of neglected and uneducated street children in Hong Kong. At that time, BGCA nurtured these street children and helped them unleash their potential to be a constructive member in the society. Through literacy and skill-set trainings, games and sports as well as material aids for these children, BGCA aimed to improve their knowledge, skills, talents and interests needed to lead a successful life.
As time goes and with the rapid changes of Hong Kong, BGCA has been continuously evolving to meet the changing needs of our society and to offer all-round support to our young generation through a balanced development approach.
In recent years, BGCA also focuses its efforts to look into the cross- generational poverty issue in the society. While deploying additional resources to support children from low-income families, BGCA also advocates government and policy-makers to take a longer-term view in tackling the poverty issues. At the same time, BGCA expands its services to assist children with developmental disorder and/or special educational needs, promote awareness on mental health for children and teenagers and offer one-stop, multi-disciplinary mental health and psychological counselling services to the needy families.
We are honored and happy to celebrate our 80th anniversary in 2016 –
“BGCA All the Way”!
