The new 27,000 square foot main Club houses "The Bacon Family Foundation Gymnasium", tech lab, teaching kitchen, games room, tween/teen multipurpose space & internet café, community room, education center and preschool.

With the desire to maximize the usage of the new Clubhouse and increase overall impact on the community, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue organization is expanding its successful coalition with the City of Bellevue to create a Clubhouse that will also serve as a multi-generational community center during hours when the Club is not in use for youth programming.

The downtown clubhouse has under gone numerous remodels to accommodate the growing number of families making their way to the Eastside. The Club’s Director of Development Michele Heffron said that for the past 63 years, the downtown club has been, “the heart and soul of the organization.” Bellevue’s population has grown by 47 percent during the past 20 years, remodeling efforts weren’t able to keep up with the volume of families and kids using the space.
