To inspire and enable young people of all backgrounds to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Rochester provide youth development programs that enable young people to acquire the skills and qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders.
Empowered with these positive developmental experiences and opportunities, Boys & Girls Club members have continually demonstrated their ability to overcome negative, failure-oriented environments and move toward fulfilling their dreams.
Boys & Girls Clubs have lasted the test of time because we have not lost sight of what a Club provides:
- A safe place to learn and grow
- Ongoing relationships with caring adult professionals
- Life-enhancing programs
- Character development
- Hope and opportunity
Since its inception, the Boys & Girls Club Movement has provided mentoring and leadership specifically designed to change the lives of youth who face daily challenges such as poverty, broken homes, crime, unemployment, prejudice and difficulties in school.
