We serve approximately 15,000 children and teens, ages 6 to 18, in our Clubs, and through our programs and partnerships.Our approach focuses on six core initiatives: Arts; Education; Leadership; Life Skills; Sports, Fitness and Recreation; and Technology. During the summer, many of our Clubs run summer camp programs for children and leadership programs for teens.
Our 11 Clubs in Boston and Chelsea reflect the communities in which they are located: Charlestown (Charlestown Club), Chelsea (Jordan Club), Dorchester (Blue Hill Club and the Franklin Hill Club at the Franklin Hill Housing Development), Jamaica Plain (the Club at the Hennigan Elementary School), Roslindale (the Club at the Charles Sumner Elementary School) Roxbury (Yawkey Club and Orchard Gardens Club at the Orchard Gardens Community Center) and South Boston (South Boston Club and the Club at the Condon Elementary School).
BGCB also operates YouthConnect and Camp Harborview. YouthConnect places licensed clinical social workers at police stations to provide prevention and intervention services and referrals to the city's high-risk youth and their families. CHV was created in 2007 by the Camp Harbor View Foundation to provide a fun and safe environment where youth could challenge themselves, make new friends and experience a world beyond their neighborhoods, where violence has been on the rise
