For more than 100 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine has provided youth development programs for young people, especially those who need us most. Our Clubhouses are safe places to learn, have fun and develop skills and interests that last a lifetime. Whether it’s academic help, learning to swim or a much needed healthy meal or snack, young people can go to their Clubhouse for the support they need to grow into great adults. Our supportive and safe spaces for students are available year-round after school and during the summer.

Currently we are not having volunteers join us as we want to keep everyone safe. One thing we are doing is Virtual programming where we work with kids on a variety of different subjects (math, science, poetry, ext). If you are interested in volunteering in this capacity please email us! We are also on Facebook, TikTok, Instagram and Snapchat now and trying to connect with members any way possible.
