Great Futures Start Here:
The Boys & Girls Club of Lynn is a 501© whose mission is to help young people, especially those who need us most, build strong character and realize their full potential as responsible citizens and leaders.
The Club offers them 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
Club Programs foster a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness and influence that builds self-confidence and self- esteem. Our approach focuses on six core initiatives: Arts; Education; Leadership; Life Skills; Sports, Fitness and Recreation; and Technology.
During the school year we serve more than 250 children daily; over 1500 members ages 5 to 18 at our main club located at 25 North Common St. in Lynn. Our summer camp program serves over 125 children weekly at Creighton Pond Day Camp in Middleton.
BGCA’s Great Futures Start Here PSA was directed by Ron Howard and features 21 prominent Club alumni including co-spokespersons Denzel Washington and Jennifer Lopez. Video soundtrack features Beyonce’s I Was Here, written by Diane Warren.
