Founded in 1962, Boys Club of Alice, operated out of an old bowling alley located near downtown on 2nd Street. The Club served boys with a gameroom and boxing ring.
In 1975, the City of Alice built a new facility on Old Kingsville Rd. The building was shared with other organizations and consisted of a large gameroom and plenty of outdoor space.
We officially became Boys & Girls Club of Alice in 1990 when our national organization changed its name to Boys & Girls Clubs of America. A few years after in 1994, the Club acquired more space to better serve our youth. We added a kitchen, learning center, tech center and arts and crafts center.
In 2005, our Board of Directors decided that in order to reach more youth and provide a wider range of programs, the Club needed a new centrally located facility to call home. Through the dedication of our Board of Directors and the outstanding support of our community and business owners, our dream has become a reality! Since, December 6, 2010, we have operated from our new location at 793 S. Texas Blvd.
