Our History

In December 2009, a group of caring and concerned citizens in the Cairo-Grady County community opened the doors of the first Boys & Girls Club in Cairo, Georgia. Then, the need was great as more and more of our young people were falling victim to negative influences including juvenile crime, teen pregnancy and not completing their high school education.

Today, the Jackie Robinson Boys & Girls Club of Cairo-Grady County, located at 101 6th Avenue SW, serves as a beacon of hope for nearly 250 total youth served annually. On a daily basis, an average of approximately 100 youth ages 6-16 participate in programs and activities designed to increase academic performance in school, build character, and teach critical decision making skills.

We know first-hand that the Boys & Girls Club makes a difference in the Cairo-Grady County community and in the lives of our children. We also know that keeping a Boys & Girls Club facility open is vital to the continued decrease in juvenile crime, teen pregnancies and increases in the high school graduation rate requires ongoing support from the entire community.

Your charitable contribution supports the many valuable programs and services that we provide youth in Cairo-Grady County. The Jackie Robinson Boys & Girls Club greatly appreciates donations of any amount toward its Annual Support Campaign, also known as Campaign 42.
