The Boys’ Club of New York provides enriching and inclusive after school programming to boys and young men ages 7 – 21. Our open door policy ensures that any boy can join, no matter his zip code, immigration status or family’s income.

Our Vision

Our vision is that all boys are competent academically and emotionally, connected to their communities, rich in character, and confident in their futures.

The 4Cs

BCNY’s programming is specifically developed to cultivate positive qualities in our members. These characteristics, based on widely accepted principles of youth development, are known as BCNY’s 4Cs: competent, confident, character-rich, and connected. While all of our programs provide members with enrichment and growth opportunities, they are specifically designed to foster the development of the 4Cs, whether a boy is in the art studio, in the robotics lab, on the stage or on the court.
