Welcome to the internet home of The Boys & Girls Clubs of Marion County, Florida. For the past thirty seven years, our local clubs have helped the youth of Marion County realize their full potential and become productive, responsible and caring citizens and leaders.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Marion County operate three units – The Dr. H.L. Harrell Sr. Unit and the Dr. H.L. Harrell Teen Center Unit which are both located at 800 SW 12th Avenue in Ocala. Our newest location, the Dunnellon Unit is located at Earnie Mills Park in Dunnellon, Florida.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Marion County have over 900 youths between the ages of 6 and 18 as members. Our members represent every area of Marion County and every race, religion and gender. On a daily basis, almost 250 members attend the Ocala Units and roughly 40 members attend the Dunnellon Unit. The Clubs are managed by a volunteer Board of Directors and an Executive Director, Mr. Jerry Lane, leads a staff of 16 year-round employees and recruits extra help during the busy summer months. These dedicated and talented individuals share in the responsibility for the daily operations of the club.
