The mission of Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club is to inspire and enable youth ages 6 to 18 to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club is a source of hope and opportunity for more than 3,500 youth. Since 1967, Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club has been providing a safe place for children to learn and grow during hours that kids are most likely to need a place to go: after school, on Saturday, and during the summer.
Nationally recognized programs help youth succeed in school, stay healthy, pursue interests in arts and sports, and explore career choices. In February 2008, Herbert Hoover Boys and Girls Club received a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, one of only 21 organizations in Missouri to receive that rating. HHBGC is part of a proud tradition of service to our nations’ youth that promotes character and leadership, community and civic involvement, and safety and well-being.
