THE STORY:

I am working with The Boys’ Club of New York (BCNY) to spearhead a teen outreach program called “BClub4U” in East Harlem. I initially committed $5,000 to pilot this program in 2014. My goal is to help BCNY expand the BClub4U program to recruit and build programs for new teen members at all three locations. But we can’t do it without your support!

DONATE: Match my contribution by making a donation. With your help, this successful program can be expanded to include outreach in all three BCNY communities: East Harlem, the Lower East Side, and Flushing, Queens.

  • $5,000 funds BClub4U in one clubhouse
  • $1,500 provides a stipend for six BClub4U teens
  • $500 provides one week of workshops for our teens
  • $250 provides our teens with marketing materials

ABOUT THE PROGRAM: This fall, BCNY “Teen Ambassadors” participated in the BClub4U Program pilot. The pilot was a great success, providing hands-on job training for six BCNY teens, who used their new-found skills to bring 50 Harlem teens to BCNY. BClub4U equips BCNY’s teen members with:

  • Resume writing and interview training
  • Skill-building workshops
  • Hands-on outreach experience
  • A stipend
  • Positive role modeling leadership training

ABOUT BCNY: BCNY is the nation’s oldest continuously operating youth development organization serving boys and young men ages 6 – 21.  We offer engaging afterschool programs in the areas of Academic Support and Enrichment; Character Development and Life Skills; Music, Art, and Performing Arts; Physical and Mental Health; and Sports and Recreation. BCNY's open-door policy and $5 annual membership fee remove most barriers to membership.  BCNY seeks to fulfill our mission to empower boys and young men by providing effective programs and a supportive community through evidence-based youth development practices and commitment to continuous improvement.
