The Boys & Girls Club of Chicopee is an innovative and vibrant youth development agency that provides outcomes-driven programs to more than 400 youth, many of whom reside in one of the most underserved communities in the city. Our high-impact programs, delivered by a dynamic team of professional staff and volunteers, ensure that our young people are succeeding academically, exploring and mastering the arts, developing career readiness skills, and adopting healthy lifestyles.

More than a Gym

At the Boys & Girls Club of Chicopee, we are redefining what it means to be a Boys & Girls Club. We foster a safe and secure environment for our young people, but that’s only the beginning. We’re helping children and teens from all over Chicopee progress and graduate from high school. At our Club, youth are learning about healthy lifestyles and eating nutritious meals. They are expressing themselves creatively in our Fine Arts, Music, and Photography programs. Our children and teens are improving their grades and making giant academic strides. They are discovering who they are and how to reach their full potential. Day after day and year after year, the Boys & Girls Club of Chicopee is making a difference for the young people of Chicopee and their families.

82% of our Teens anticipate attending a 4-Year College.

92% of our Teens report not skipping school because of the Club.

92% of our Teens feel the Club is a fun place to be.
