At the Boys & Girls Club of New Haven, we serve with one purpose- to inspire and enable young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Because of our dedicated staff and trusted youth development programs, we are impacting the lives of young people and their families every day by helping them develop strong character, positive social skills, self-esteem and academic discipline needed to be successful in school and beyond.

We teach Club youth how to adopt a healthy diet, practice healthy lifestyle choices and to make a lifelong commitment to fitness.
