The Boys & Girls Club of Fall River is a youth development agency. We have been serving youth in grades kindergarten through senior year of high school in the Greater Fall River Area for over 124 years. We offer a safe place for these children to learn, play and grow. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of our members by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and a power of influence.

We believe that that every child in our community should have a safe place to learn and play, where caring adults supervise, guide and lead them to adulthood.
