History of The Club

Dreams Became Reality

The Myrtle Beach Community is making a difference to the Boys & Girls Club of the Grand Strand in support of the Club’s dream to build a new home. The new facility built on land donated by Burroughs & Chapin in the Booker T. Washington Neighborhood has made it possible for both the Teen Program and the Youth Center to operate in a centralized location and to provide services that promote education, character, leadership development, recreation and healthy lifestyles.

NBA Player and Myrtle Beach High School Alumnus, Ramon Sessions, is partnering with the Boys & Girls Club of the Grand Strand. Together, they have launched their capital campaign to raise funds for the construction of a new building complete with educational space, media center/technology lab, and a gymnasium with a full basketball court. This new building has enabled the Club to serve more youth and teens in the Grand Strand, as well as provide them with additional opportunities to reach their full potential. 

Other gracious contributors include Brittain Resort Management & Family, The Chapin Foundation, The Joe Moglia Family Foundation, Carolina Radiology & Associates, Sharon & Michael Clayton, The Jordan Family, The Gunter Family and Anonymous Donors.  The Boys & Girls Club of the Grand Strand is blessed to have a community which stands behind its programs throughout its 25+ years of existence – and the club still needs assistance.
