The Boys & Girls Club of Trenton & Mercer County provides after-school, weekend, and summer programs to more than 2,300 Greater Mercer County area youths; 97 percent of them reside in Trenton. Presently, the Boys & Girls Club operates 11 after-school program sites with 1,200 kids enrolled daily, and three summer camps with 450 campers. These programs are conducted at the Boys & Girls Club and at various public school locations within the City of Trenton.
The Club also runs a Career Launch program which serves middle- through high-school students as they prepare for responsible adulthood. Teens at their most at-risk stages gain an understanding of the importance of education in career success, and develop goals for the future.
