The KeyBank YouthForce program is a unique employment and career development opportunity for teens that provide job readiness training, employment opportunities; and overall career planning. Teens participating in the program are currently working at Portland Timbers and Thorns games.


Boys & Girls Club of Portland Metro (BGCP) has teamed up with Treehouse to launch TalentPath — an apprenticeship initiative focused on creating pathways to high-paying tech jobs, that will break down barriers for women and underrepresented people of color.

TalentPath program allows teens 18-24 to fast-track their career by earning a Treehouse TechDegree, getting a paid 3-month internship, and ultimately a full-time job placement at a Portland tech company.

All at no cost to the student.


Nightscape is Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland’s weekend program for teens. On Friday and Saturday nights, Clubs open their doors for teens to play basketball and engage in themed activities each week. Nightscape is made possible through support from the Schnitzer CARE Foundation.

Teen Centers

All Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland facilities have designated teen-only areas that provide a separate space, apart from younger members, where teens can relax, socialize, participate in age-appropriate recreation activities, seek assistance with academic, personal, health-related or employment needs.
