Changing lives of young people since 1983, BGC Peel (Boys and Girls) is a not-for-profit, charitable organization that engages children, youth and families across the Region of Peel. Our families come from all walks of life, some are seen as at-risk children, youth and families from low-income communities but in the end EVERYONE can benefit from the services and programs we offer. We provide a safe place for these individuals to participate in impactful, fun activities that support the development of confidence, learning and positive relationships.

We are currently serving the City of Mississauga, City of Brampton and the Town of Caledon. We are always looking to expand our services across the Region and further grow and develop relationships with our current and future Partners.
