Who We Are

Founded in 1900, Off The Street Club is Chicago’s oldest boys and girls club. We currently serve more than 3,000 kids in one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country, West Garfield Park. We are grateful to all our supporters, including the Chicago advertising, marketing and media community.

We are a place where kids can truly find hope. Every child seeking a safe place to go is welcome to join us for games, play and mentorship.

What We Do

Against the backdrop of West Garfield Park, where crime, gangs and drugs are a daily threat, we offer hope. Off The Street Club is a place where kids living in this neighborhood have a safe place to learn, laugh
and play without worry.

We offer several afterschool programs, tutoring and mentorship opportunities for all the kids that pass through our doors. Off-site, we run a number of programs throughout the Chicagoland area, including our very own summer camp, Camp Mathieu in Wheaton, IL.
