Founded in 1868, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence are the oldest continually operating Boys & Girls Club in the country.
Our enriching educational programs focus on math, science, writing and technology and help children explore a wide-variety of career paths to achieve success in a field they are passionate about.
At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence, our Arts programs are an important outlet to highlight and grow the creativity of our members.
Each year, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence serve as a home away from home for more than 7,000 local youth, many of who come from economically-disadvantaged households, by providing a safe, fun and supportive learning environment.
