The Boys’ Club of New York, Today

Since 1876

The Boys’ Club of New York serves nearly 3,500 boys who are members of our three full-service clubhouses — Harriman Clubhouse on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Elbridge T. Gerry, Jr. Clubhouse in East Harlem, and the Marion McMahon Abbe Clubhouse in Flushing, Queens.

Our membership is 41-percent African-American, 40-percent Latino, 13-percent Asian or Pacific Islander, and 6 percent Caucasian. In terms of economic status, 48.7% had an annual family income of less than $25,000, and 80.4% had an annual family income of less than $50,000.

Furthermore, 73.3% of our members qualified for free school lunch, and an additional 6.0% qualified for reduced-price lunch.

“We seek to address the evolving social, emotional, health, creative, educational, and vocational needs of our members in meaningful, lasting ways.”

In doing so we aspire to become thought leaders in boys’ development — a growing field of interest in youth services and one in which we draw from longstanding experience. ✎
