Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula has ensured youth living on the Virginia Peninsula have an inclusive and safe space to engage in an array of development opportunities since 1946. During our after-school and summer programs, youth not only enjoy the benefits of participating in Club programming, but they also develop positive relationships with peers, adult staff, and volunteers. Our core programs focus on Education, Leadership & Service, Health & Wellness, The Arts, and Sports & Recreation. More than seventy-five years ago, 250 neighborhood boys in Newport News entered the Boys Club of Newport News on 28th Street and experienced a family atmosphere while engaging in new and unique experiences. The organization has witnessed incredible growth since those first young men walked through those doors. We now serve over 5,000 boys and girls ages 6-18 each year in the cities of Newport News and Hampton and in the counties of James City, York, Gloucester, and Mathews at 11 Club sites.
