Programs and services grew rapidly and since 2002 the BGCA has operated a full continuum of support services to children, youth and families throughout the capital region. Programming includes: a range of childcare programs for ages 3.5 to 11; a range of community and school based youth & family services; housing and asset development supports for youth and families; community recreation and special events for all ages; and a variety of community development initiatives.
