Mission Statement

To serve the young people of our community by providing safe places and positive programs that enhance their moral, intellectual, social, and physical development.

Description

History

Troy Boys Club (TBC) became incorporated in 1903. By 1906, Troy Boys Club became a member of the Federated Boys Clubs in Boston. In recognition of being one of the 53 founding organizations of the Boys & Girls Club Movement, the Club was named a "Diamond Jubilee Charter." In 1966, Troy Boys Club allowed girls to attend specialized programming for the first time. Later that year, the main facility of the Club was dedicated in downtown Troy and continues to operate out of this facility today. In 1991, Troy Boys & Girls Club was officially re-incorporated and recognized girls as "official" members.

FOCUS
