When construction is completed, Drake University will be the third private college or university with a Boys and Girls Club on campus. Drake University and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Iowa announced April 2017 that Drake’s campus will be home to a new Club location that provides after-school and summertime services to hundreds of K–12 youth.

The Gregory & Suzie Glazer Burt Club, to be located near the southwest corner of 25th St. and Forest Ave., will serve an estimated 170 children and teens in its first year, growing to 225 by year five. The Club—only the third in the nation to be located on a private university campus—will provide numerous educational and service opportunities for Drake’s students and further integrate the University with the surrounding neighborhood. This relationship is highlighted here: https://www.drake.edu/community/partnerships/boysandgirlsclub/

This partnership is multi-faceted. Anawim subsidiary, Altera Property Management holds the Drake contract for residential and commercial off-campus properties. They were chosen in part because any profits they make go to support the mission of Anawim Housing. In addition, Anawim receives interns and volunteers from among Drake's student body.
