The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford is: To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford is proud of its long and illustrious history of offering youth development programs/services to the children/ families who live in some of Hartford's most distressed communities. For over 150 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social, and family circumstances. We have been there for children/families at-risk and have provided year-round, after-school and non-school hours programs, services and support. Our support addresses critical needs and problems, and has enhanced the positive growth and development of our children. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford has made it possible for thousands of Hartford's children to develop into positive, productive and caring adults.
