Who We Are

We are a vital support system for our community's families, and the need for our services continues to grow.


The Boys & Girls Clubs of Indian River County is committed to providing our youth with the best possible facilities, programs, and activities.

While at the Clubs, children receive high quality education and prevention programming as well as enjoy a fun, safe, and active environment. Below are the hours of operation.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Indian River County are open to all children in the community between the ages of 6 and 18.

Membership is affordable, and scholarships are available for those who demonstrate financial hardship. For the after-school program, families pay a one-time application fee of $30 as well as a monthly fee. Fees are published in our parent portal, and we offer 100% and 50% scholarships to families who may need it.


We are governed by an excellent Board of Directors led by two co-chairmen, Bob Bauchman and Paul Hanson. Day-to-day operations are led by our Chief Executive Officer, Elizabeth Thomason. Each Club is managed by a full time Club Director and a full time Program Director, with numerous part time professionals.
