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

About Us

The Boys & Girls Club is more than a building…it is a safe place for kids, a community hub, a thriving arts center, an active gymnasium. Read on to find out more about who we are and how we strive to serve our members and community.

What We Do

The Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley is a safe space to learn and grow after the school day ends – all while having fun. We see the Club as a welcoming place for kids of all ages and backgrounds to come play, be themselves, and become amazing adults; many of our members see the Club as a second home. Either way, it is the place where great futures are started each and every day.

Our Mission

Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to be great today and reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens tomorrow.

To see the impact that we are having on the community around us, feel free to take a look at our 2018 Annual Report.

Who We Serve

We primarily service communities in New Hampshire’s Souhegan Valley: Milford, Amherst, Hollis, Brookline, Mont Vernon, Peterborough, New Ipswich, Lyndeborough, and Wilton.

More importantly, we serve hundreds of aspiring young artists, athletes, engineers, teachers, and leaders in our Club’s programs, including diverse gym programs, unique theater and dance opportunities, community service programs, STEAM, and more.

Recognition

While the most rewarding thing for us is to see our members thriving, we have received community recognition as well for the work our staff does. We have been the recipient of several annual “Best Community Service Organization in the Souhegan Valley” awards, as well as a 2017 NH Magazine Business of the Year. Additionally, our members have been chosen to perform at 5 national Boys & Girls Clubs of America conferences. We appreciate this recognition and the awareness it raises for our mission.

Along with the rest of the world, we’ve been closely monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19. It has brought uncertainty and disruption to the communities we serve, but Boys & Girls Clubs of Souhegan Valley’s top priority has not changed: the health and safety of the children we serve.

I wanted to take a moment to keep you informed on how we are doing everything we can to ensure the well-being of our Club members, as well as the staff and volunteers who work at/with the Club.

We remain in close and regular contact with local, regional and state health officials and are monitoring the regular updates from the Federal government, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), as well as the World Health Organization (WHO). Though the situation around the virus remains fluid, our goal is to continue our mission – to serve those kids who need us the most – both during and after the crisis affecting all of us now.

Here are some of the proactive steps we’ve quickly taken to continue to protect the well-being of our members, as well as to continue the important work of the Club:

  1. Established a weekly meeting schedule, made up of Club leadership and Board members, to monitor the situation, stay in close contact with local, regional and national officials and share insights to Club staff, parents and greater Milford community.
  2. Reinforced our Safety Standards with additional emphasis on virus prevention protocols across the organization and to our Club members’ families.
  3. Expanded opportunities for Club staff members to reduce their risk of contracting and spreading infections, and ensure they have the necessary support during these uncertain times.
  4. Defined what resources we can provide to our kids and families, whether the Club itself is open or closed.
  5. Utilized virtual resources developed by our staff to continue connection and engagement with Club members and their families remotely.
  6. Taken extra steps to ensure our Clubhouses are clean, sanitized and that those who enter are symptom-free.

The safety and well-being of our Club members remains our foremost priority, and we will continue to share updates with you as quickly and transparently as possible.
