 About Us

Our Mission is to enable all young people - especially those who need us most - to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.

 

Hudson County's greatest asset is its young people; they are the future leaders of our society.  We strongly believe that by investing in the success of our children we are creating a brighter tomorrow for everyone. 

Why the Boys & Girls Clubs?

Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. It is the place where great futures are started each and every day.

In our communities, boys and girls are often left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.

We offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.

We are part of a national movement and a 501(c)3 non profit organization made up of a team of dedicated staff, volunteers and community partners who have worked together to create a better community through investing in our youth for more than 119 years.

We provide our members:

  • A Safe, Positive Environment - Our Club staff, facilities, program offerings and age-appropriate settings create stability, consistency and a sense of physical and emotional safety for members. The Club provides structure and clearly defines acceptable behaviors.
  • Fun - Our Clubs generate fun for members. Members develop a strong sense of belonging through the connections established with staff and peers. Our staff members make the Club feel like home, fostering a family atmosphere and creating a sense of ownership for members.
  • Supportive Relationships - Club youth develop meaningful relationships with peers and adults. Our staff members actively cultivate such relationships to ensure that every member feels connected to one or more adults and peers. Staff members demonstrate warmth, caring, appreciation, acceptance and proper guidance in their interactions with members.
  • Opportunities and Expectations - Club youth acquire physical, social, technological, artistic and life skills. Our Clubs encourage members to develop moral character and behave ethically. Our staff establishes and reinforces high expectations and helps young people to do well in school and pursue a post-secondary education.
  • Recognition - Our Clubs recognize and affirm young people’s self-worth and accomplishments. Our staff members encourage youth and provide positive reinforcement as they make improvements and experience successes. Our Clubs showcase young people’s achievements.
