Founded in 1997, The Hempstead Boys & Girls Club opened its’ doors to address the desperate need for after-school and summer recreation opportunities for school age children and youth residing in the Village of Hempstead. Over the years, the program has changed, but the dedication to our youth, families and community remains the same.
The Hempstead Boys & Girls Club mentors, protects and develops Hempstead’s most valuable resources: Our children, youth, young adults and families. We help them develop their self-confidence, sense of responsibility and leadership capabilities by providing:
• A safe place to learn and grow
• Ongoing, mentoring relationships with caring, adult professionals
• Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences
• Hope and opportunity
