How We Are Different:
Few agencies offer the all encompassing youth development programs that we provide for our community. Our five areas of core programming and the wide age range that we serve, enable us to provide effective and long term service to our youth. We are able to assist our young people in all aspects of their development, ranging from building the foundation of early academics and on through career exploration or higher education. The Boys & Girls Club of Stamford is here to meet the growing needs of our at-risk community. We not only provide innovative youth development services and after school programs at our main facility, but we also provide outreach and satellite programs to two different Housing Authority units, Vidal Court and Fairgate apartments.
