Health & Wellness

By engaging young people in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, the Boys & Girls Club of Meriden’s Health and Wellness programming teaches the importance of setting personal goals and developing the competencies necessary to live successfully as self-sufficient adults.


Passport to Manhood
Passport to Manhood is a program that engages teen boys in discussions and activities that reinforce character, leadership, and positive behavior. Program sessions use interactive activities to focus on a specific aspect of character and manhood, talk about overcoming obstacles they are experiencing or will experience in their lives, and how to make good choices.

SMART Girls is a small-group health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program designed to meet the development needs of girls in three age groups, spanning ages 8-18. Through dynamic sessions, participatory activities, field trips and mentoring opportunities with adult women, Club girls explore their own social attitudes and values as they build skills for eating right, staying physically fit, getting good health care, and developing positive relationships with peers and adults.

These initiatives help youth achieve and maintain healthy, active lifestyles.
