Meet BGC Toronto Kiwanis!

It’s official. Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Clubs has become BGC Toronto Kiwanis. Not to be trendy. Not because it’s shorter or catchier. But because Clubs across the country open their doors to all kids and teens and we believe our brand should reflect that.

Toronto-kiwanisRemoving gender from our name modernizes the BGC brand and echoes the inclusive practices we’re known for, without straying too far from our history and brand awareness. It also embraces the fact that we serve young people of all ages, backgrounds, and identities.

New brand, same legacy. 100 years of creating opportunities for thousands of kids and teens in the Regent Park and Trinity Bellwoods communities.

Celebrate 100 Years with Us!

Despite taking on a new name, we know that for many, our Club will always be K-Club, Gerrard Club, Parkdale K, Summerhill K, Police K, Midtown K, or TKBGC.

As we celebrate our 100th year of serving the communities that we love, our Club wants to hear from those who are a part of our history. We know that the club has played an important role in many of your lives, be it making your childhood more enriching or shaping your future career. Over the years, we have heard incredible stories from many of you about how the club did so.
We can think of no better way to commemorate this milestone than having members of our community hear from you!

Alumni, Past Staff, Current Staff, Current Members, Volunteers, whatever your role within our community – we want to know your story.

If you want to share about your time at BGC Toronto Kiwanis or are interested in participating in our 100 Stories Campaign, please visit our website (www.bgctk.org) for more information.
100 years of service would not have been possible without the incredible support of our community and those we served.
We can’t wait to hear from you!
