The Boys & Girls Club is the premier youth service organization in the City of Clifton. From Gingerbread (pre-school) to High School, the Club serves children and their working parents. The Club is safe, affordable, and managed by a dedicated, caring staff, in-tuned with the changing needs of the developing child.

The Boys & Girls Club of Clifton has been a part of the community for many years. My children are members and enjoy participating in activities from after care, soccer, swim lessons and karate class. The staff are very attentive and caring with the children. I feel safe that my children are well taking care of and are in excellent hands with the staff.

Hats off to the aftercare staff and the directors for a well ran program

i have been involved with the Club for the better part of 11 years and certainly am impressed with the way the club is run and the service it provides to the children of Clifton and their parents. The Club provides services to over 11,000 children each year and seems to have a little something for every age bracket of children. The Club has an excellent after school program that is administered to over 700 hundred children each day both at the main site and several various school sites throughout Clifton. Of course there is always room for improvement and the Club certainly has its share of issues dealing with so many children. However, what I like most about the Club is the flexibility it has in dealing with these issues and the expedient way in which they are handled. I enjoy interfacing with the Club in various ways and look forward to continuing my involvement. The Boys and Girls Club of Clifton is certainly a "Positive Place for Kids."

I was a member of the Girls Club as a child and I can still remember the fun I had there. Never thought that years later I would be a Board Member of the club, but it was something I had to do. I had to go back and volunteer for the organization that helped make me the person I am today. The dedication the staff gives to the children each and every day is commendable. Keep up the good work in helping to educate our future leaders.

My boys (ages 8 & 5) LOVE the club. When I say we live there it's no joke. They have so much to offer for kids of almost any age. My youngest started at the club with Mom and Tot swimming lessons. My oldest with the after school care. We take part of many of the programs and activities that the club has to offer. We feel safe and secure here.
I am proud to also be an employee of the Boys and Girls Club. I've seen the club grow and the children grow with it. Watching the children you knew as Gingerbread kids grow into amazing teens is awesome.

Spent many hours at the Boys and Girls Club of Clifton in my youth and teens years. From swimming lessons, to a safe, fun place for teens to hang out on the weekends. A valuable asset to the community.
