I have been volunteering at the Boys and Girls Club for almost a year. The program offerings for the kids lead them to experience meaningful opportunities for growth and development. From music, to science based, to farming, recreational activities and more...kids get to choose something different every day to explore. The staff and volunteers are well managed and create a fun safe atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. I thoroughly enjoy volunteering there and will continue to do so.

I have bee an intern at the Boys and Girls Club for a couple of months now and I absolutely love it there. The staff and volunteers are really friendly and they are great people. I am lucky to have the opportunity to intern here and get some experience with working with kids. The Boys and Girls Club provides the kids with different learning experiences and fun activities that they can participate it. I love coming here and doing my internship it is really fun and the kids have taught me a lot and the kids are just great as well. It is a great organization and I am happy to be a part of it.

I've been an intern at The Boys and Girls Club for the last few months and I have met so many incredible people who have devoted their time to supporting these kids and giving them opportunities they otherwise may not have. The staff and volunteers are wonderful and so are the kids!

My son Jalen has been attending the boys and girls club for the last 2 years. He loves nasa science, scratch programming and lego robotics. He has been able to use and create lego robots thru their robotics programs and will get to compete in FLL this year. He has learned skills like programming and coding. The club opens so many doors thru their STEM programs that he would never have at home or school. I am grateful that he has a safe place to go afterschool that he likes!

We signed my son up for the summer camp at the B&GC when he was 6. He absolutely loved it there that summer, and begged to go back for February and April vacations this year as well. I was amazed at how quickly the staff got to know him, and by that I mean more than just his name, but his personality, his likes and dislikes. He attended again over the summer, and is looking forward to going back for both school vacations and summer camp again. I love that they do a variety of activities, including science experiments, as well as sports and other educational (but fun!) activities.

My daughters, 8 and 9 absolutely love this place! I admit I wasn't sure about the program when they first started, but have nothing but great experiences. The staff is great and the activities engaging. For example, the girls attending the garden club, and were so excited to eat the lettuce they had grown themselves. It also inspired them to grow their own mini garden at home. I feel very comfortable going to work knowing, they will be having fun after school.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None that I can think of.

should be 5 stars but the rating system could be a little more forgiving. my 9yr old has been coming to the club since it moved to it's new location. every person who interacts with the kids knows them by name. situations are handled professionally and children flourish with the staff and volunteers. the grounds are exceptional while the new facility deserves to be filled to capacity. the boys and girls club of Fitchburg and Leominster needs to be around forever

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

more kids would mean more staff. thus more jobs allows for more kids to benefit from the program

The Boys & Girls Club is just awesome. There are so many kids that come to the Club, and they are very well organized. They offer many activities and are always looking for ways to get the community involved. The Club is so full of life and joy it was a pleasure to volunteer with them this year.
