The Boys & Girls Club Family Center has deep roots in the City of Springfield. For more than 100 years, the Club has offered a safe haven and support for families and children.
The Club has evolved over the years to be responsive to the changing needs of the community. The mission of the Club – to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens – continue to guide our efforts.
The Boys & Girls Club Family Center is governed by a Board of Directors, which is led by Board President Tonya Ward, while day to day operations and management are led by Executive Director Keshawn Dodds.
The Boys & Girls Clubs Family Center is part of a national network of affiliated Clubs. The national organization, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, began in 1860.
We are proud to provide the programming that our community needs. From our full day Pre-School to our after school youth program, to our evening teen program and our summer sessions, we keep our doors open seven days a week for the community to utilize. Being rooted in the heart of Springfield, MA, we pride ourselves as being city’s best neighbor, but also like that we help the community become a true family.
To enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
