Boys & Girls Clubs in New Hampshire

2019 Goals:

Since the first New Hampshire Club opened its doors in Manchester in 1906, Boys & Girls Clubs have been changing young people’s lives. Today, 10 individual clubs are headquartered in Allenstown, Concord, Derry, Lakes Region (Laconia), Manchester, Nashua, North Country (Littleton/Lisbon), Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Salem and Souhegan Valley (Milford) with 18 club program sites and 16 school sites. Boys & Girls Clubs are on track to serve more than 25,000 registered members and more than 40,000 will be served by our outreach programs and events statewide. This fall, clubs will be expanding services to Greenfield, Francestown and Hancock with a goal of serving more youth.

Fundraising Events:

The Fun Fall Frolic, a 5K run or 2 mile walk, takes place on September 29, 2018. For information, visit for details and registration. The State Youth of the Year Dinner & Legislative Day takes place in April or May 2018. This event recognizes the great youth that have made a significant impact on their local clubs and communities. The winner will represent New Hampshire at the Regional Youth of the Year competition in New York.

Giving Opportunities:

Boys & Girls Clubs in New Hampshire depend on fundraising, special events, annual appeals, grants, foundations, and public and private partnerships for the support of the community-based youth development programs and service areas throughout the state. Every child deserves a great future! Clubs are working to assure success is within reach of every child entering our doors, with members on track to acheive our priority outcomes in academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. Boys & Girls Clubs in New Hampshire have a proven track record of financial accountability ensuring proper use of funds. We are uniquely positioned to help any donor address any youth development need or challenge on a statewide platform.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteers are the key to making our clubs successful. Interested volunteers can help clubs as members of the board, serve on special event committees and assist with other activities that occur throughout the year. Program volunteer opportunities include academic (tutors, mentors), sports (coaching, instructors), cultural arts (dance, music, chorus, arts), STEM (robotics, Legos, computers), chaperones, special hobbies and interests to share.
