Mission To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.

Accomplishments over the past year include:

  1. Provided daily life-enhancing programming for over 6,000 youth, ages 6-18 during our After-school, Spring Break and Summer Adventures Programs at 13 Club locations in Newport News, Hampton, York County, Gloucester County and Mathews County.
  2. Maintaining two Boys & Girls Clubs' Thrift Stores to be a source of revenue as well as provide our teens with job training, volunteer experience and work experience.
  3. Outstanding Board and staff leadership with recognition at the state, regional and national levels.

Goals for the upcoming year include:

  1. Continue to provide daily life-enhancing programming for over 6,000 youth, ages 6-18 during our After-school, Spring Break and Summer Adventures Programs.
  2. Strengthen our workforce development program (now known as YES Academy) and help our teens graduate high school as well as make plans for their futures.
  3. Raise the necessary resources to effectively continue implementing enriching programming and keep our Clubs running successfully.

1.   We are in need of building repairs and maintenance at several of our Clubs.

2.   We are in need of more corporate and community partnerships to help us provide job readiness training and opportunities for our youth.

3.   We are in need of consistent volunteer groups who would make a commitment to have volunteers at all of our special events and to help in our Thrift Stores on a regular basis.

4.   We are in need of new or gently used vehicles to transport our youth to field trips, community events, and to our workforce development center/programs, especially 12 passenger vans.

5.   We are in need of continued in-kind contributions for our Clubs and Thrift Stores.


Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula has a rich history, serving youth across the Virginia Peninsula and surrounding communities. We have grown from one Club (Boys’ Club of Newport News) serving 250 boys in 1946 to 13 Clubs that serve over 6,000 boys and girls. We have also opened a Boys & Girls Club Workforce Development Center and two Boys & Girls Clubs' Thrift Stores. Our organization began serving youth in just Newport News and now we have Clubs located in Newport News, Hampton, York, Gloucester and Mathews. We have made a deep impact on this community with alumni who have grown up to be business leaders, serve in the military, as government employees, doctors, professional athletes and so much more. Over the past 71 years our organization continues to do what it does best - teach youth the importance of education, how to make positive life choices and how to plan for the future. We do all of this in a safe, fun environment with adult professionals who care about them.
