Mission: To inspire and enable young people of all backgrounds to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.Boys & Girls Clubs of Rochester provide youth development programs that enable young people to acquire the skills and qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. Empowered with these positive developmental experiences and opportunities, Boys & Girls Club members have continually demonstrated their ability to overcome negative, failure-oriented environments and move toward fulfilling their dreams.Since its inception, the Boys & Girls Club Movement has provided mentoring and leadership specifically designed to change the lives of youth who face daily challenges such as poverty, broken homes, crime, unemployment, prejudice and difficulties in school.
Boys & Girls Clubs provide young people with a safe place to go after school and during the summer as well as a positive outlet for their energy. Out-of-school hours serve as the essential link between school and home, offering the greatest opportunity to influence the future of our kids, and our community. Boys & Girls Clubs of Rochester seeks to ensure that all kids, especially those who are most at risk, have a positive and enriching experience when the school bell rings, putting them on the path to success.
