Our Success

96% of our teen members graduate from high school and go on to college.

More than 6,000 community service hours were performed by Club youth in 2014.

100% of our kids learn respect, fair play, and personal responsibility.

Our Challenge

Our successful programs attract more than 500 kids daily.

More families than ever rely on us for meals and a safe place for their kids.

State and local budget cuts hurt youth development funding.

Every child matters, and every child is our future.

Our Need

Join in our mission to help some of the poorest children in the Commonwealth. We make a difference in the lives of these children by giving them hope, direction, programs, services, and love.

It costs $850 to provide one child with recreational and educational support for a year. Can you help?

For more information, call Executive Director Markus Fischer at 978.683.2747, ext. 111.
