To enable all youth, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.
The Boys & Girls Club of Milford is an after school program for youth in Milford between the ages of 5 and 18. Our after school program provides academic enrichment and recreational activities to help young people improve their lives by building self-esteem and developing values and skills during critical periods of growth through our five core program areas: Character and Leadership Development, Education and Career Development, Health and Life Skills, The Arts, and Sports, Fitness and Recreation. Programming is available during critical times of the day when youth might be home by themselves or otherwise unsupervised with the possibility of being exposed to at risk behaviors. Young people from throughout the City of Milford can attend the Club from 1:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m., on days in which they are participating in person learning. On days in which students are participating in full virtual learning we are open from 8:30am- 4:30pm.
The Boys & Girls Club Board of Directors and Staff have worked hard to offer and expand programming as much as possible. Our goal is to help families with all of their childcare needs. Allowing them to rebuild their lives and our community. We have collaborated with both local and state officials to ensure our programming, policies, and procedures meet all necessary health and safety guidelines.
