Each year, the Boys & Girls Club of Worcester awards several scholarships to members who have demonstrated excellence both in and out of the classroom. Our generous donors hand-deliver scholarships to recipients at our annual Scholarship Dinner, where we celebrate our member’s hard work, determination and bright futures.
