Since 1971, Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County have operated 13 clubs reaching 8600 youth county-wide. With NMTC financing, a new club is being built in Belle Glade, one of the most impoverished communities in Florida. The new 13,860 sq-ft facility will reach an estimated 900 annually with after-school enrichment programs, career training, nutrition education and a garden. Services are provided on a sliding scale or free if needed. In addition to services, the club serves 78,000 meals annually.
