For over 55 years, the Boys & Girls Club of Moncton has carried on a tradition of helping young people to discover, develop and achieve their full potential as adults, citizens and leaders, by engaging them in activities that challenge and enrich their minds, bodies and spirits and nurture their self-esteem.
The Boys and Girls Club of Moncton is made up of trained, dedicated staff and volunteers who provide children and youth, ranging in ages from pre-school to young adulthood, with programs and services in physical recreation, science and technology, arts, culture, health and nutrition, mental health, education, multiculturalism and more
The Boys and Girls Club of Moncton operates six major program initiatives that are grounded in the latest research in child and youth development. These program initiatives provide not only a safe, caring, and healthy environment, but also relevant programs and initiatives that inspire, teach, challenge and respond to evolving social concerns, helping young people to realize their best potential in a complex world.
Our MOMENTUM initiative is the Boys and Girls Club of Moncton's newest approach. Presently, our MOMENTUM operations are divided into six major key programs. Each one of these programs has names identifiable by the children and youth who use them. These programs are REACH, GPS, PATH, RAISING THE GRADE, CONTEXT, and LIFE.
MOMENTUM responds to children, youth, and their families through a variety of services designed to connect them to their community. The programs provide transportation services to over 12 community locations weekly and to several local schools within the City of Moncton. Over 350 children and youth now have full access to the various programs offered by the Club because of an elaborate transportation system and partnerships between both school districts.
MOMENTUM provides various community development services to support children, youth, and their families. Our programs are designed to channel all the necessary resources needed to effectively answer to a young person's needs not only in the short term, but also on a long term bases. Our service deliveries encompass items such as physical safety, health and nutrition, family life, leadership, recreation, mental health support, and special education services designed not only to help children stay in school, but to also help them raise their grade.
