NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – This year marks the year of the teen for the Boys and Girls Club. Michael Bethune, a member of the club, shares his experience.
The Boys & Girls Club of New Haven is a member organization of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and is one of the largest youth-serving organizations in New Haven, reaching over 1000 children and teens each year.
The New Haven Boys Club was founded in 1871 by Mrs. Eli Whitney in her home across the street from the Green. In 1872, Mrs. Whitney Blake named her Club the “United Workers” and to this day the Club maintains that title as its legal name. In 1891, the Club moved to a new location at 200 Orange Street which is now the Hall of Records. The Club remained at this location until it moved into a newly constructed facility in 1915 on Jefferson Street.
The Boys & Girls Club are hosting their annual Believers Bash on November, 3rd, 2016 at 6PM at Alexion, 100 College Street, New Haven!
