Our MIssion & History
Olivet Boys & Girls Club was one of the original 50 organizations that banded together with like youth groups from across the country to form what became Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
We serve over 3,000 youth annually.
For most of the club’s history, we had two units in two neighborhoods, Clinton Street and Mulberry Street. During the 1990s, the Club expanded into several new areas of the city. Olivet currently operates seven satellite locations across Reading, along with Blue Mountain Camp in Hamburg, PA.
Our three core areas of programming promote Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles, and Good Character & Citizenship. To reach and serve as many youths as possible, our programs and services are available during non-school hours and during the summer at free or greatly reduced costs.

What You Can Expect from Our Programs
Our programs address the region’s most pressing and immediate youth issues of education support, afterschool programming and mentoring – all of which is provided by caring and knowledgeable staff. We adhere to the national Boys & Girls Club of America’s initiative to help young people between the ages of six and eighteen get a healthy start and enter school ready to perform to the best of their ability cognitively, physically, socially and emotionally.
