A Positive Place for Kids
Our Mission is the Movement's Reason for Being
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
A Boys & Girls Club Provides
- A safe place to learn and grow...
- Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals...
- Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences...
- Hope and opportunity.
Four key characteristics define the essence of the Boys & Girls Club of Meriden. All are critical in exerting positive impact on the life of a child:
Dedicated Youth Facility
The Boys & Girls Club is a place – an actual neighborhood-based building – designed solely for youth programs and activities.
Every Club has full-time, trained youth development professionals, serving as positive role models and mentors. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.
Available and Affordable to All Youth
Clubs reach out to kids who cannot afford, or may lack access to, other community programs at a low cost.
