The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County is a marriage of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Arlington with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Fort Worth. This exciting merger becomes official in October, and we couldn’t be more excited about it! This means the proceeds of the Arlington Turkey Trot will go to help even more children throughout the Metroplex.

The mission of The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Tarrant County” is simple – “To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”

Their Formula for Impact is an adopted strategy created by their National Headquarters and serves as a roadmap for Clubs to help ensure that members achieve their priority outcomes of Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship and Healthy Lifestyles.

It represents the five key elements for positive youth development:

  • A safe, positive environment
  • Fun
  • Supportive relationships
  • Opportunities and expectations
  • Recognition
  • It also incorporates high-yield learning activities, targeted programs and regular attendance. They incorporate this model at all of their clubs to achieve success.
