About Us
Our Mission
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 crossgenerational 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.
