Southend Club Project
New Southend Club Capital Campaign opening doors.
Nationwide, but not citywide
For over 150 years we’ve been opening doors for youth who need us most. Although the national Boys & Girls Clubs movement began here in Hartford in 1860, today, we’re unable to reach many of the children who need us most in our city. Nearly one-third of Hartford’s school children live in the Southend, yet we do not have a Club in that part of Hartford.
Opening a new door for 1500 youth
The new Club will serve an additional 1,500 children in the city’s southeast corridor. The new Southend Club will help fill a desperately needed gap in the community by giving kids a safe place to learn and grow during the critical after school hours from 3-9 pm.

- We cannot offer 1500 kids a safe, nurturing after-school alternative to the streets.
- We cannot give 1500 kids a better chance to graduate high school and go to college.
- We cannot guide 1500 kids’ on the path to becoming responsible adults.
Yes, we can open that door. Here’s how:
