Mission:
The Mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Middlesex County (BGCMC) is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. Our goals are to promote the social, educational, health, leadership, and character development of boys and girls during critical periods of their growth. We accomplish our purpose by providing children with:

? A safe place to learn and grow along with peers of other races and national backgrounds- a refuge from the outside ethnic-based gang environment;

? Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals who demonstrate appropriate behaviors, set limits, encourage positive activities and teamwork, and give them confidence to provide positive role models for their peers and for younger children;

? Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences such as field trips to cultural and educational organizations, help with homework and understanding its relevance for their future, opportunities to learn to use computers, teaching what they have learned to younger members, and applauding their successes; and

? Hope and opportunity for the future. We show children pathways to better education and jobs, bringing in volunteers from local colleges and universities to encourage and work with them. We guide children to set goals and take the steps to achieve them. We help children avoid pitfalls, such as early pregnancy and drug abuse, which will impede their progress.
