We cannot be more excited about this as many people from the Boys & Girls Club Board, the Jersey City Medical Center, the community and other organizations have contributed to transforming this vision to a reality.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hudson County has been in the forefront of youth development for 119 years.  We are dedicated to enabling all young people – especially those who need us most – to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens of the communities that we serve.

Operating in Jersey City since 1893 and in Hoboken since 1984, we serve thousands of youth, ages 5-21, each year in our sites.  We offer comprehensive and quality programming in three major age groups:

  • Rising STARs (Science, Technology, Art and Reading for Kindergarten-3rd Grade)
  • 21st Century Community Learning Center (4th-8th Grades)
  • Teen Programs (High School)

Our philosophy is simple; by providing services to children at an early age and giving them encouragement and positive experiences, we offer a compelling alternative to youth crime, gang membership, drugs, and other negative influences that effect our youth today.  We give them the guidance they need to be successful adults and give back to their community.

We promote the development of young people by instilling in them a sense of confidence, responsibility, and belonging.  We are devoted to changing our community for the better by investing in Hudson County’s most valuable asset: our children.
