Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula has ensured youth living on the Virginia Peninsula have a fun, welcoming, 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 & Careers, Character & Leadership, Health & Life Skills, The Arts, and Sports, Fitness, and Recreation. More than seventy-two 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 6,000 boys and girls ages 6-18 each year in the cities of Newport News and Hampton and in the counties of York, Gloucester, and Mathews at 13 Club sites.
