The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Polk County is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
In 2019, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lakeland & Mulberry and the Citrus Center Boys & Girls Clubs joined forces to create the Boys & Girls Clubs of Polk County. The merger hopes to streamline services and open new channels of monetary support to be able to better serve our current members and expand to serve more of Polk County’s at-risk youth.
