Did you know?
- The Boys & Girls Club Movement began right here in Hartford, CT by three women in 1860.
- The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2010.
- As a national organization, we have a few alumni names that you might recognize. President Bill Clinton, Bill Cosby, Michael Jordan, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Jennifer Lopez, Mario Lopez, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen and Denzel Washington were all members.
- We help thousands of Hartford-area at-risk children, ages six to 18, each year.
Every child follows a path in life.
For many that path will lead them to a door. A door that gives them a place to grow, to learn... to belong. A place to forge their future.
For 153 years our Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford has opened our doors for our community's youth. Because while most doors open, our doors TRANSFORM.
Open the door to a child's GREAT future. Make a contribution or volunteer your time. Every little bit helps us be the positive, safe place kids come to learn and grow.“Please Check Channel 30 for Club Closings”
