About the Boys & Girls Club of Meriden

A Positive Place for Kids!

Our Mission

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

Three 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.
  • Professional Staff
    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.
