Boys & Girls Clubs of America had its beginnings in 1860 with three women in Hartford, Connecticut - Mary Goodwin, Alice Goodwin and Elizabeth Hammersley. Believing that boys who roamed the streets should have a positive alternative, they organized the first Club. With character development as the cornerstone of the experience, the Club focused on capturing boys interests, improving their behavior, and increasing their personal expectations and goals. A cause was born.

Boys & Girls Clubs provide a fun, safe, and constructive environment for kids and teens during out-of-school hours. Community-based and led by professional staff, Clubs serve small towns, large metropolitan areas, public housing communities, and Native populations, as well as those who live on U.S. military installations worldwide. They offer programs and services to help young people succeed in school, develop leadership skills, and maintain healthy lifestyles. Clubs offer a variety of tested, proven and nationally recognized programs designed to empower kids and teens to excel in school, become good citizens and lead healthy, productive lives. Programs are tailored to the local community and customized for each age group to meet the interests and developmental needs of young people ages 6-18. Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s research shows that young people who attend a Club regularly tend to do better than their peers nationally.
