The Boys & Girls Clubs of Syracuse offers youth many varying life-altering programs aimed at helping them become the citizens we know they can be. These programs are proven to be successful and focus on preparing members for real-life challenges like fulfilling college entrance requirements, maintaining healthy lifestyles, and avoiding drugs and alcohol.


Clubs are open each day after school from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. 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 that can change their lives.


Our professional, well trained and caring staff implements proven youth development strategies that provides an ultimate Club experience for every young person who walks through our doors.


Through our programs, we enable our youth to reach their full potential as healthy, productive adults. Our programs are our promise for the future. They 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. Based on the interests and needs of the disadvantaged boys and girls we serve, our Clubs offer diverse program activities in the following areas:
