Great Futures Start Here!

The Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley has been a cornerstone of the community since opening it doors in 1926, operating back then as the Community Building Association. Serving some 2,000 youth a year, our Club provides a safe, structured and positive environment for young people after school, during holidays, and over summer vacation.


We are part of a nationwide network of Boys & Girls Clubs. Located in every state, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and U.S. military installations overseas, Boys & Girls Clubs are delivering proven programs to millions of young people every day.


Our Mission

To provide, in a safe environment, programs that inspire, educate, guide, and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.


Membership is open to children between the ages of 6 and 18 years. Our hours of operation are generally from 2:00 to 9:00 p.m., five days a week; see our Membership pages for specific hours in Shelton and Ansonia. During the school year, we provide transportation to the Club from public elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools in Shelton, Ansonia, Derby, and Seymour.
