The Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui operates six safe and fun youth centers for kids 6-18 throughout Maui County. Clubs are located in Kahului, Haiku, Kahekili Terrace, Lahaina, Makawao and Paukukalo.

Club fees are $5 per youth annually or $10 for a family with two or more kids. Scholarships are available for families who need assistance.

C lubs are open whenever school is out -- afterschool on weekdays, during breaks and all summer long -- when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.

Much more than just a fun place to "hang out," Clubs offer proven programs (see bottom of this page) run by youth development professionals.

Membership Application Packet

Free bus transportation to and from the clubs is offered in partnership with MEO.


Mahalo!

On June 2nd, over 60 volunteers from WorldVentures teamed with Boys & Girls Clubs youth, staff, board members and community volunteers to create a garden at our Lahaina Clubhouse. In addition to their priceless gift of labor, WorldVentures donations of garden supplies and cash donated by their volunteers totaled over $4,000!

The centerpiece is a tranquil Peace Garden in the planter of the Monkeypod tree that stands at the Clubhouse entrance. The Peace Garden features a cultural garden of native, medicinal and edible plants, including canoe plants brought by the first Polynesians.

Lahaina Unit Director Danae Marin shared, "The WorldVentures participants all displayed such a wonderful spirit of teamwork, kindness and caring. I believe their hard work and interaction with our youth will continue to have a positive impact on the lives of many. We are very grateful!"

Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui President Dave Jorgensen observed, "The kids were so great with the WorldVentures people and really showed what great programs BGCM has and how kids can be helped with a little assistance from 'friends'!"

We are forever to grateful to our amazing team of Maui Community heroes who were spent days on this project and were invaluable in the planning and planting of our garden included Master Gardener Trisha Calhoon, Kirk Surry of Grow Some Good, Chef James Simpliciano of SimpliFresh Produce, and volunteers Uncle Joe and Auntie Nancy. Our garden is amazing because of your vision, passion, expertise and care!

Mahalo to SAP’s Winners Circle!

SAP Donates More Than $58,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui

Robert Enslin, President of SAP Global Customer Operations , presented Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui Chief Professional Officer, Colin Hanlon, a check for more than $58,000 at SAP’s employee Winners’ Circle gathering in Wailea in February 2014. The donation was made on behalf of its 1000+ employees who supported and ran in SAP’s 1-mile and 3-mile Aloha Run activities. SAP proudly hosts this benefit activity to give back to the local community during its annual company incentive trip.

 

"The World's Greatest Athlete," decathlon Olympian and Oahu native Brian Clay
was on-hand to provide motivation to the runners and kick off the Aloha Run.

 

SAP also donated two NBA portable basketball goals and other sporting equipment to BGCM. In addition, Under Armour, an SAP customer, donated one hundred sports balls to the Clubs.

This is the second occasion that BGCM has benefited from SAP’s generosity. In 2012, SAP donated $35,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui.

Mahalo, SAP, for your continued partnership and generous support of our youth!


 

OUR IMPACT

Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club. All are critical in exerting a positive impact on the life of a child.

  • Dedicated youth facilities – Boys & Girls Clubs are places -- actual neighborhood-based buildings -- designed solely for youth programs and activities.

  • Open when kids need us most – The Clubs are open weekdays after school and during the summer when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.

  • Professional staff – Every Club is directed by trained youth development professionals who act as role models and mentors to members. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.

  • Available and affordable to all youth – For only $5 per year, any child between the ages of 9 and 17 can become a member. We do not discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or income. We also offer scholarship programs. We partner with MEO Youth Transportation to provide transportation free of charge to and from the club.

How We Help Kids Succeed:

Boys & Girls Clubs offer proven programs that help youth gain the developmental assets they need to succeed in life. Members participate in a variety of programs in the following Core Program Areas:

The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Support your local Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui -- six safe, positive neighborhood centers providing after-school and summer programs for young people between the ages of 6-18 years old.
