Oscar Cross Boys & Girls Club
The Oscar Cross Boys and Girls Club has been a part of the Paducah McCracken County community for sixty years. It began with a dream of Oscar M. Cross, a probation officer, who saw a need for young men to set higher goals for themselves and prepare for their future.
Upon affiliation with the National Boys and Girls Club of America in 1953 more youth, both male and female, became active members. They were introduced to ideals of good character, academic achievement, and citizenship.
It is the Oscar Cross Boys and Girls mission to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to be all that they can be as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. They also provide our kids a sense of belonging, usefulness, social competence, and power to influence the world around them.
