Building Great Futures for New Haven Kids

Stand with our kids during COVID-19

At the Club House

Located in the heart of the Hill neighborhood, we are a second home to children and teens from across New Haven. Generations of families have counted on us to inspire their kids to be the very best they can be—in a safe and nurturing place.

Our Promise

Every New Haven kid is special. We provide caring mentors and a safe place to help them reach their full potential. Innovative, quality programs that are not only fun but also support youth to excel in school and lead healthy, productive lives. We do whatever it takes to ensure all New Haven kids have a great future.

In The Community

Our impact extends way beyond our Columbus Avenue home with after school programs at the West Rock Community Center and at Bishop Woods Magnet School.

Q

The Club gave my son somewhere to go so my husband and I could continue to work. With school being closed we had no options and have been scrambling for months. The Club is a blessing!
At the Learning Hub, my son gets help every day with his homework. I try to help him at home but I also have to take care of my mom and dad. Sometimes it takes a while before I get to help him.
I hope the Learning Hub continues to stay open during these trying times. It makes it possible for me to work while my child does his virtual learning. It is very hard for me because I work mornings and I don’t have childcare or family who can help.
At the Club I don’t have to worry about safety during the pandemic. Because they are constantly cleaning and sanitizing, everyone who enters the building has to wear a mask, and they take temperatures. The group leaders always make sure the kids wash their hands.
My son never stops talking about all of the fun he has. He can’t wait to go to the Learning Hub each day and he loves it. He needed the interaction after being stuck in the house for months.
