Boys & Girls Clubs in New Hampshire

2020 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 19 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.  Boys & Girls Clubs in NH have developed strong prevention programs that are having a significant impact in reducing you alcohol, tobacco and drug usage.  Clubs  will continue this great work in the coming year.  Clubs are also providing great opportunities for our youth members in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).  This will remain a priority in 2020, along with  meals programs that serve thousands of youth on a monthly basis.

Fundraising Events:

  • The Fun Fall Frolic, a 5K run or 2-mile walk, takes place in September 2019. For more information and registration details, visit
  • The State Youth of the Year Dinner & Legislative Day takes place in May 2020. 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 achieve 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.
