For over thirty years, the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from all
economic, social, and family circumstances. The Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham has actively sought to enrich the lives of girls and boys whom other youth agencies have had difficulty in reaching. We are dedicated to ensuring that our community's youngsters have greater access to quality programs and services that will enhance their lives and shape their futures, regradless of their economic or family circumstances.
In a world that has never seemed more threatening and devoid of promise for a disproportionate number of America's children, the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham provides a tangible measure of hope. The Club offers young people what they need and want most - adults who respect and listen to them; a safe environment where they can have fun and be themselves; and interesting, constructive activities that channel youthful energy into challenging pursuits.
A youth development strategy underlies all Boys & Girls Club programs and fosters a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness and influence that builds self-confidence and self-esteem.
The Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham is part of a nationwide affiliation of local, autonomous organizations and Boys & Girls Clubs of America working to help youth of all backgrounds develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. It is facility-based and offers daily access to a broad range of classes and activities in five core program areas:
Character & Leadership Development
Education & Career Development
Health & Life Skills
Sports, Fitness & Recreation.
Today, over 700 boys and girls at risk and in need are taking advantage of the programs, activities, and services provided by the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham. They benefit from trained, caring, professional staff and volunteers who help young people take control of their lives, envision productive futures, and reach their goals.
Fundraisers such as the upcoming Holiday Bazaar enable us to keep our membership fees low and affordable so that our programs remain accesible to everyone
. You can make a difference! Please consider using your talent to make a gift to donate to the Boys & Girls Club of Stoneham.
