Meet bgc williams lake club
It’s official. Boys & Girls Club of Williams Lake and District has become BGC Williams Lake Club. Not to be trendy. Not because it’s shorter or catchier. But because Clubs across the country open their doors to all kids and teens and we believe our name should reflect that.
Removing gender from our name modernizes the BGC brand and echoes the inclusive practices we’re known for without straying too far from our history and national brand awareness. It also embraces the fact that we serve young people of all ages, backgrounds, and identities.
New name, same legacy: more than 27 years of creating opportunities for Williams Lake kids and teens.

Through a range of social, recreation, education programs and outreach services covering young people between the ages of 5-18, we help young people learn the skills they need to grow into happy, healthy, productive adults.
Community Support Services
With referrals from the Ministry of Children and Families, School District 27, and other service agencies, our qualified staff work to strengthen youth and families and develop capacity in the community.
Boys and Girls Clubs both locally and nationally, believe in partnership, collaboration and integration when it comes to developing programs for youth, delivering services, and advocating for issues involving children, youth, and families. Our Club is actively involved on many committees such as the Social Planning Council and the Communities That Care Project, as well as leading groups such as the Integrated Youth Team that address youth issues and work together to plan services for individual youth. The Club believes and practices collaboration, and is committed to lending its specific expertise towards the social and economic health of the community.
