Welcome to the Boys & Girls Club of Newark!

We believe every young person deserves the opportunity to build a great future for themselves, by achieving success in school, developing a strong character, and living a healthy lifestyle.

Great Futures Start with

Academic Success!

Staff at BGCN are not only committed to helping children increase their academic productivity and feel positive about their school accomplishments, they also provide an empathetic ear, and serve as positive role-models.

Great Futures Start with

Healthy Lifestyles!

BGCN believes in addressing the needs of the "whole child" - we house a free dental clinic, eye care center and family wellness center at our Clubhouse, and our programs focus on cultivating healthy habits in our children.


Great Futures Start with

Good Character!

BGCN empowers children to make good choices, sustain meaningful relationships with peers and caring adults, develop a positive self-image, and become productive, engaged members of the Newark community.
