Boys & Girls Club of Greater Waterbury
of Matching Remaining
The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Waterbury provides safe, after school programs focused on academic success, healthy lifestyles and good character and citizenship. The Club currently has over 255 after-school members in grades K – 12. Through outcome focused programs that include athletic and recreational activities; academic and enrichment programs, including tutoring and mentoring; and other preventative services, the Club provides positive reinforcement and guidance to stem the problems facing today’s youth. We believe that positive youth development comes from five elements: safe, positive environment; fun; supportive relationships; opportunities and expectations; and recognition. Our enrichment programs address the disparity in outcomes for youth living in poverty and overcome the impact socioeconomic status has on a child’s eventual life trajectory. Over 87% of our members qualify for free or reduced cost lunch. After-school membership costs $75/school year; however, it costs the Club over $3,000/child to run the after-school program.
