Mission Statement

To inspire and enable all young people and their families to realize their full potential as healthy, productive, responsible and caring citizens.

Description

The Waterville Boys Club was established on December 12th, 1924 and the YMCA in 1948; both clubs served the needs of the Greater Waterville Area, and in 1972 the Girls Club and Boys Club merged creating the Waterville Boys & Girls Club. When renovations were needed for both facilities the late Harold Alfond proposed combining the two organizations under one roof to better serve the needs of the community. Thus, the Alfond Youth and Community Center was established in 1999.

Today, we serve over 4,000 youth members and 500 adult members from 191 communities in a wide variety of programs. We serve residents of Maine with 34.6% of incomes below poverty level and 50% of public school students reporting food insecurity. Over 75% of our youth qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch program and, as a result, attend our programs at no cost to them. We feed our youth a nutritious meal every day and a healthy lifestyle that will last a lifetime at the rate of 85,000 meals and snacks annually and 125 Weekend Meal Backpacks that supplement meals for over 380 family members every Friday.
