Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston provides a safe, affordable place with caring adults and enriching programs for kids to go when they are not in school.

Safe Place

Our Clubs are strategically located in neighborhoods with pronounced need throughout the city of Boston and Chelsea. 97% of our parents feel their child is safe when they're at the Club.

Passionate Staff

Our caring youth development professionals serve as positive role models to our members. 86% of members say there is one or more Club staff they would turn to in a crisis.

Enriching Programs

We thoughtfully design our activities to help members reach their full potential. BGCB also partners with more than 200 community organizations to deliver eye-opening opportunities.

"Hi, my name's Onyx.

I've lived in Roxbury my entire life, and I've been coming to the Club there for four years. Most days, I head up to the music studio to work on music with my friends. Music has become a big part of my life. It helps me handle stress and express myself."
