About Us

The Boys & Girls Club of Assabet Valley,Inc. has been serving children in the Maynard, Stow, Concord, Acton and Sudbury, Massachusetts area for over 40 years. Our organization’s history closely mimics the history of many of our club members; over the last four decades we have overcome many challenges, from insufficient program management to near closings, but over the last four years our Club’s team has increased program offerings, doubled our youth retention rate and have remained on a consistent trend of positive growth.

Our Club has adapted its programs to meet the ever-changing needs of the community we serve. We impact the lives of more than 1,800 children annually through a variety of youth-centered programs. Our primary goal is to create programming that can help enrich the lives of children from all walks of life.

Young people need to know that someone cares about them. Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. The Boys & Girls Club of Assabet Valley is a safe place to learn and grow -- all while having fun. "Great Futures Start Here."

Our Members 

 Our members come from all racial, social and economic backgrounds. Our Club accepts all children for who they are, regardless of need. We only require that members show respect to the staff and their peers and live within the ideals of the Club's mission.

The Club serves 1,800 youth per year, ranging in age from 5-18. While a majority of the youth live in Maynard, a number of them come from neighboring towns of Stow, Concord, Acton and Sudbury. For only $40 per year, kids enjoy a wide array of programming in a safe, adult supervised environment. 

Each member agrees to abide by a set of rules that encourage working together to solve problems and differences. Our programs are designed to encourage discussion and to emphasize alternatives to the trouble kids can get into on the streets.

The communities we serve are close knit and the members are friends inside and outside the club, at local schools, recreation and sport leagues. The interaction they learn at the Boys & Girls Club is carried forward in their day to day activities.

Members of the community are also an important part of the Boys & Girls Club family. By supporting our volunteer base, tutoring members, chaperoning field trips, and attending various fundraisers, our community is in tremendous support of Club activities. Without community support, the Club would not be where it is today.

We encourage youth of all ages to stop by the Boys & Girls Club of Assabet Valley and see for yourself what we are all about!
