History

Boys and Girls Clubs of Calgary has a long and vibrant history starting in 1939 with Boys Town, followed by Girls Town in 1944. In 1949 Boys Town, which was used synonymously with Rotary Boys Town, changed its name to Calgary Boys' Club which continued through the 1950s. The name changed again in the early 60s to reflect the growth of new clubs within the city to Boys' Clubs of Calgary, and then again in 1975 when the Calgary Club was the first Boys Club in Canada to officially welcome girls as members.
