Toronto Kiwanis Boys & Girls Clubs (TKBGC)

Our Mission

Working with young people and their families, we enable them to develop the life skills, knowledge and values essential to becoming healthy contributing individuals.

Our Vision

To be recognized as a leading organization that has a wide scope of resources compelling young people to reach their potential.


Clubs offer children a place to channel their energy and sense of adventure into challenging activities that encourage healthy living, personal growth, learning, and community involvement.

Clubs provide programs to children and youth from preschool age to young adulthood, with a focus on children ages 6 – 24.

Toronto Kiwanis Boys & Girls Clubs take a preventative approach to tackling a broad range of critical issues facing young people in our society today, including child poverty, youth education and employment, youth violence, substance abuse and teen pregnancy.

Through their involvement with Toronto Kiwanis Boys & Girls Clubs, children and youth learn about being responsible individuals and are encouraged to develop their leadership potential, so that they can contribute to and participate in their communities.
