The White House Historical Association and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America started a partnership in the spring of 2016 aimed at educating students on the history of the White House. The initiative first partnered with Washington D.C. area Boys & Girls Clubs and expand to clubs nationwide.

Boys & Girls Clubs of America has long been associated with the White House through their “Youth of the Year meeting” with the President each year as well as their special relationship with President Herbert Hoover. Hoover was elected Chairman of the Board for the organization in 1936 and became a lifelong advocate for children. The organization has grown significantly from the Hoover era, now serving nearly 4 million kids and teens annually.

Through this partnership, the White House Historical Association engaged young members at Clubs around the country, the nation’s future leaders, with dynamic opportunities to learn invaluable lessons from White House history.
