“Innovation is what breeds breakthroughs. Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston recognizes that to be the leader in youth development, cultivating environments where our staff are encouraged and rewarded to think creatively is crucial.”
—Nick Sailor, Senior Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston
Building tomorrow’s leaders by sustaining communities today is BGCB’s ethos. To be that change, we must honor and uplift our neighborhoods through investing in our young people.
Throughout this past summer, our Clubs gathered with other local Boys & Girls Clubs to host Teen Nights, an evening for our older members to enjoy games, music, food, and opportunities to connect with teenagers from across the city. A different Club hosted each week, encouraging our members to venture out of their neighborhoods and experience other Clubs and communities. As a result, our teens enjoyed somewhere fun and safe to go on Friday nights, and forged new relationships with each other and their communities.
