Common questions about the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows
At the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows, our goal is to give kids a fun, healthy environment that gives them the tools to develop life skills. Opportunities for members are as diverse as our membership. Kids might choose to do an art project in our art room, hit up the computer lab to check e-mail or play games, take part in Reno Ballers or another sports league, or just hang out with friends in one of our common areas. Tutoring help is available in our library and homework rooms, giving youth and teen members great tools to build great futures. Check out our Programs and Services page for more information.
The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows’ membership varies throughout the year, based on circumstances like season, school track breaks, and sports leagues. Annually, the Club serves more than 13,000 kids at locations throughout the Truckee Meadows and Fernley. At the Club’s main site, the Donald W. Reynolds Facility in Reno, daily youth populations can run from a couple hundred to nearly 1,000.
Many of the Club’s sites have full kitchens, and offer full meal service through a state-funded nutrition program that is supplemented by the Club and donors like Model Dairy. Annually, this means the Club is able to serve more than 250,000 healthy meals a year. The menu, developed under the watchful eye of our executive Cook, is constantly changing in an effort to improve the nutritional value of meals.
The E.L. Weigand Youth Center is a Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows-affiliated site that offers programming for infants, toddlers, pre-schoolers and kindergartners.
