We serve more than 6,000 youth on the Virginia Peninsula and surrounding communities. We provide boys and girls with a safe place to learn and grow, foster ongoing relationships with caring adult professionals, and offer life-enhancing programs and character development experiences. We prepare them for their futures with career goals, and we give them hope and opportunity in their present lives. Our locations across the Peninsula in Newport News, Hampton, York, Gloucester, and Mathews give youth in multiple communities access to a Club.
