Since 1892, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Syracuse has provided our community’s youth with many varying life-altering programs aimed at helping them become responsible citizens. We serve more than 1,000 youth at four Club locations and two school-based sites; offering kids a safe environment, with outcome-driven programs proven to have a positive impact on their lives.
Through our programs, we enable our youth to reach their full potential as healthy, productive adults. Our programs engage young people in activities with adults, peers and family members that enable them to learn powerful life skills and introduce them to new experiences. Each program falls under five core areas: character & leadership development; education & career development; health & life skills; sports, fitness & recreation; and the arts.
Our Clubs are open each day after school and serve school-aged youth. Research has shown that during this time of day, children are most vulnerable to gangs, violence, and other risky behaviors. We promise our kids a great future by not only keeping them safe and off the streets but by giving them opportunities to change their lives!
