The Boys and Girls Club of McComb/Pike County a private, non-profit youth organization that is fully chartered by the Boys and Girls Club of America, was established and incorporated in 1990 by its former Chief Professional Officer, Randy Tate. It was established to provide a safe haven for at-risk youth and to alleviate the effects of gang-related activities; drugs, teenage pregnancy and an increase of school dropout rates. Since our inception, we have served over 30,000 youth with a steady increasing current membership.
We presently have two sites: Jewel Rushing Unit in McComb and Walthall County Unit in Tylertown. We are open approximately 270 days a year and any child who’s between ages five thru eighteen can become a member of the Club.
We have provided local youth with the following services: After school tutoring, self-esteem coaching, goal setting, personal hygiene, health care, drugs, alcohol and pregnancy prevention (offered by trained staff through structured activities and guest speakers). We also offer our members music, art, summer camps, educational trips, leadership training and recognition programs.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Southwest Mississippi offers the best investment that anyone can make in the future of our community.
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
