The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford is the birthplace of the nationwide Boys & Girls Club movement.
The country’s first Club, the Dashaway Club, was founded in Hartford in 1860 when four women, Mary Goodwin, Alice Goodwin, Elizabeth Hammersley and Louisa Bushnell, believed that boys who roamed the streets should have a positive, healthy place to live and grow.
From its humble beginnings, Boys & Girls Clubs has grown to become the largest youth organization in America, serving more than 4.6 million young people in over 4,738 clubs nationwide.
Today, nearly 160 years later, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hartford still builds the values, character and and skills our youth need to succeed in in the 21st Century. We provide academic assistance, leadership development, access to technology and exposure to colleges and careers to build GREAT Futures.

The Makerspace powered by Infosys Foundation USA participated in a contest with BGCA, combining art with STEM - the Fine Arts/Makerspace interdisciplinary project.
our members created their own tiles. Together they created a laser etched community arts project over the course of several weeks.
Working with members of the Asylum Hill Club, all ages, from the Early Learning Center up to staff members. Each participant designed their own translucent tile using either a computer design program or markers and paper to represent themselves in a positive light.
We hope you enjoy these creations as much as we do! We love the creativity and talent of our members and are happy to be able to share it with the community. ... See MoreSee Less
