5,000 youth in the south end of Ottawa need access to opportunities and barrier-free programming. Today, you can help build it.
With your help, we can be there for every child that needs it. We aim to double our Members and locations by 2024 to meet the deep, and rising need in our community.
We provide children and youth with a third place between the realities of home life and the pressures of school — a place of positivity and belonging where they can play, create, and learn what it takes to become their best selves.
We aim to be Ottawa’s leading champion of children and youth — corporations, communities, and families will look to us first to understand what children and youth need to thrive today and in the future.
We help the next generation develop what they need to make positive change.
BGC Ottawa is truly grateful to the City of Ottawa, the Province of Ontario, and the Federal Government for this opportunity to invest in our community through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program: COVID-19 Resilience stream.
The new Heatherington Clubhouse in the south-end will enable us to reach so many youths and children in need, giving them the skills and tools to grow and thrive in uncertain times.
This funding is a milestone step, but we still have lots of work to do. We are looking forward to working with our strong community partners to see this project fully funded for both capital and operations and constructed by the end of 2021.
