In the community since 1946, The Salvation Army of Greater Houston serves youth of all ages at eight locations. Be it physical or spiritual needs, The Army offers programs where children and teenagers can find support and a “home away from home.”
The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs
At five of our Corps Community Centers, children are given a safe environment in which to explore and maximize their potential after school. In the summertime, parents are also offered the opportunity to have their children participate in our summer day camp program.
- Aldine Westfield Boys & Girls Club
- Garden City Boys & Girls Club
- Irvington Boys & Girls Club
- Northwest Boys & Girls Club
- Pasadena Boys & Girls Club
International Corps Community Center, while not a Boys & Girls Club, also offers an after-school program and summer day camp to children in the Alief area.
The Salvation Army’s Upward Bound college preparatory program assists low income and first generation students pursue a post-secondary education. The program is offered at two high school campuses in Southwest Houston.
Youth of the Year Scholarship Program
Youth of the Year is a Boys & Girls Clubs scholarship competition that provides year-round youth development for our Club members ages 12 to 18. Winners earn scholarships for continued education upon graduating from high school.
