Join the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence.

In our 153-year history, one thing has always remained the same: we provide a safe space and structured programming for our city’s youth to play, grow, and learn. Today, 82% of our members live under the poverty line. To assure them a bright future, we work to break the cycle of poverty. That means addressing the structural issues that hold our kids back, including lack of access to educational programming, and lack of exposure to critical opportunities that develop their skills, talents, and passions. Today, we run eight sites throughout Providence, including buildings in the Fox Point, South Side and Wanskuck neighborhoods, three locations in Providence public housing sites, and two public schools. Annually, we provide 4,000 diverse youth between the ages of 6-18 a safe and secure environment for help with homework, childcare, mentoring, athletic activities, and educational and career development opportunities. 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.
