Boys and Girls Clubs of Rochester is a local autonomous, not-for-profit organization with ties to a national affiliate. Although other cities have had Boys Clubs for more than a hundred years, Rochester was without a club of its own until the 1970’s. Their mission “to inspire and enable young people of all backgrounds to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens” is accomplished through a variety of education, career, art, sports and leadership programs.Many of the programs are only made possible through the generosity of local individuals and corporations.
