Young Advocates Circle

The Young Advocates Circle is a special fundraising group of professionals in their 20s and 30s devoted to supporting the Boys’ Club of New York and its members by volunteering, fundraising and engaging with like-minded philanthropic individuals.

For $5 a week, the price of one cup of coffee, you could change a boy’s life forever.
