Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metropolitan Area - Rockwood Club


The Boys & Girls Clubs mission is to empower all young people, especially those who need us most, to discover their full potential as caring, engaged, responsible community members.

The Rockwood Boys & Girls Club is the newest Club facility, which opened for youth programs on October 9, 2017. The Club, designed specifically for Rockwood youth, features learning, innovation, and activity spaces for youth 6 to 12 years of age and has a stand-alone center for teens, ages 13 to 18. The Rockwood Club serves five school districts: Reynolds, David Douglas, Centennial, PPS, Parkrose, and has a partnership with Open School East. 

Program Examples:

  • Power Hour provides Club professionals with strategies, activities, resources and information to create an engaging homework help and tutoring program that encourages Club members at every age to become self-directed learners.
  • The KeyBank YouthForce program is a unique employment and career development opportunity for teens that provide job readiness training, employment opportunities; and overall career planning. Teens participating in the program are currently working at Portland Timbers and Thorns games.
  • Boys & Girls Club of Portland Metro (BGCP) has teamed up with Treehouse to launch TalentPath — an apprenticeship initiative focused on creating pathways to high-paying tech jobs, that will break down barriers for women and underrepresented people of color. TalentPath program allows teens 18-24 to fast-track their career by earning a Treehouse TechDegree, getting a paid 3-month internship, and ultimately a full-time job placement at a Portland tech company. All at no cost to the student.
  • All Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland facilities have designated teen-only areas that provide a separate space, apart from younger members, where teens can relax, socialize, participate in age-appropriate recreation activities, seek assistance with academic, personal, health-related or employment needs.
