Why should you join the Club?
The Boys & Girls Club of Worcester believes in hope and opportunity for all young people, and is dedicated to serving underprivileged children within the Worcester community. To ensure that all youth are reached, membership costs just $25 per year. Programs are open to children ages 8–18, and include both school-year and summer programs. A minimal fee is charged for full-day summer programming.
Orientation attendance is a requirement for new members, and must take place prior to membership activation. Children ages 8-14 are required to have a parent or guardian accompany them to the orientation. Children ages 15-18 may attend without a parent or guardian. Please contact our front desk at (508) 754-2686 to learn more about upcoming orientations, and schedule a time to meet.
Due to the decrease of COVID-19 cases, starting spring 2022 we will be resuming our in person orientations for families. We will post updates on social media and our website when orientation schedule is released.
Returning members since 2021 are not required to attend an orientation, but are required to fill out a membership application form to ensure that information is accurate and up-to-date. They are charged the $25 annual fee on a yearly basis.
Once the membership application process is complete, new members receive their membership cards. Members are required to carry their membership cards with them at all times, and are asked to present their cards upon arrival to the Club. Membership cards are required to participate in Club programs, or to check out game equipment. Any member who has lost his or her card can replace it for a fee.
