Boys & Girls Clubs of Lanier has been helping local kids and teens reach their full potential and become who they were meant to be since 1954 when it was founded as the Gainesville-Hall County Boys Club. Today, we continue to provide a place where kids can go after school and during the summer where they feel safe, connect with others and build the skills and confidence they need to reach great futures.
