Boys & Girls Clubs Drop-In Program 

Emily, Club Member, Age 11
“The Club is really a great place.  The staff members listen to the kids, they include everyone, and they encourage us to do our best and be our best.  I can be unique, I can be myself and everyone supports that at the Club.”


Larianny, Club Alumna
“As a kid, I always felt like the staff was inviting and all inclusive.  It was easy to see and feel that they cared … You shouldn’t look at this organization as just a Club where kids have fun.  This is a safe place where kids build skills, build dreams, and formulate their goals for the future.”


Michelle Thier, Parent
“As a mother, one of my biggest worries was finding an affordable, safe place for my son after school while I was working. The club was suggested and from the day we stepped foot through the doors for a tour we immediately felt like family. Not only did it give me peace of mind that my son was safe, the staff gave my son the tools every boy needs to succeed in life. They say it takes a village, right? Well, I could not agree with that saying more, especially when talking about the Boys and Girls Club.”

Discovery Club 

Holly Wang
“Discovery Club has been a great after school program for my son. He has been in Discovery Club for 2 years and enjoys the variety of activities that the Club offers. The teachers are wonderful and really care about the well-being of the kids. With the separate room for homework, my son has been able to get his homework completed without distraction. I have been very happy with the program and I know my son enjoys it too.”

Marylynne Colacchio
“The staff is attentive, dedicated and always greets you with a smile. I am proud to say we are part of the Boys & Girls Club Family.”

Jeannette For
“I am so pleased with how the staff has helped my child, Trinity. It has been a roller coaster for us with her school work. They have done a wonderful job with assisting my child. These ladies need to be recognized for their work they do with the children. Putting my child in this program was the best decision I’ve made.”

Happy Hours Preschool 

Rich and Jane Forte
“As grandparents, we are happy to have our grandchildren be part of a program that promotes basic learning, safe play and getting along with others. Most importantly, they are under the watchful eye of committed, caring educators who enjoy watching them learn and develop as much as we do.”

The Giorgi Woodford Family
“This is our fifth year with two or more to go at Happy Hour Preschool. It’s a wonderful place with nurturing teachers who care about every child and their young families. Our children have learned about friendship, and how to share toys and snacks with others. The have gained independence in a safe and friendly environment.”
