Metropolitan Police Boys and Girls Clubs

The Metropolitan Police Boys and Girls Clubs (MPBGC) help to prevent crime by providing the children of the District of Columbia with structured social, recreational, athletic, and educational activities to help them develop into responsible citizens. Staffed in part by officers and other personnel of the MPDC, the Metropolitan Police Boys and Girls Clubhouses create safe havens to play and learn, and provide positive role models to inspire youth.

In 2003, the MPBGC merged with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington in an effort to provide even more programs serving even more area youth. This merger preserves the facilities and services of the MPBGC, a local organization that has provided DC children with strong police mentors and athletic and educational programs for more than 70 years. MPDC officers continue to provide staff services and support in the seven MPBGC Clubhouses, but these services are strengthened through the resources, diversity and stability of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington. As a result of this merger, more than 35,000 DC-area youth are being served annually.
