History

We have a long history of building better futures.

The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows was founded in 1976. The first Club occupied a facility just south of the intersection of Terminal Way and East Plumb Lane in Reno. In late 1981 the current facility opened on East Ninth Street.

In September of 2004, through the generous support of the Reno/Sparks community, transformed our East Ninth Street facility into the 80,000 square foot Donald W. Reynolds Facility that it is today.

Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows Today

Today, the Club runs a total of 36 sites throughout Northern Nevada, including the Donald W. Reynolds Facility on East Ninth Street and the William N. Pennington Facility on Foster Drive in Reno. Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows also facilitates sites hosted in 13 schools, four Teen centers, Neil Road and Lemmon Valley youth sites, and an Early Learning Program at the E.L. Wiegand Youth Center.

In 2017 we opened facilities in Ely and Winnemucca for a total of 13,500 local youth served. Our transportation program provides upwards of 90,000 bus rides from local schools to our Club sites, and our food program serves nearly 327,000 meals to our members every year. In an effort to keep our services as affordable as possible, Club membership costs just $20 per year, even though we invest nearly $2,500 annually into each of our members.
