Our Mission

To enable and inspire children and youth, especially those from diverse or difficult circumstances, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and healthy members of their community, the State of Rhode Island, and the nation.

119,000 meals

served each year.

675 teens

trained through our
youth employment program.

82% members

live in poverty.

This October, 300 youth from different career & technical schools from across the State of RI came together at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence’s Southside Clubhouse to build a two-story solar treehouse — a sustainable, STEM-focused program space for the community. Check out the highlights from the community unveiling, featuring Mayor Jorge Elorza, Governor Gina Raimondo, City Council President Luis Aponte, and all our amazing youth, and tune in to our Youtube Channel to see the progress from Day 1.

To the students, teachers, and industry partners who joined us for an incredible week of community building and learning, thank you. Together, we’re making sure all our youth are getting the chance to play, grow, and learn, while building great foundations for education and careers moving forward. A special thank you to Louis Cotoia and the Rhode Island Builders Association for joining us to organize this amazing project, and believing in the work we do for our city’s youth!
