Shaping the Future

Youngsters are influenced by more than just school and sports—that’s one of the notions behind the expansion of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County.



Youngsters are influenced by more than just school and sports—that’s one of the notions behind the expansion of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County. The organization recently opened its new facility in Plainfield, giving kids and young adults easier access to its activities and programs like the After School and Teen Leadership initiatives.

Inside the new facility are modernized classrooms, computer workstations and game rooms. Participants can engage in education enhancement, digital literacy, arts and crafts, community service, physical fitness and learning about nutrition and healthy relationships.

The club also operates a bike exchange program from the Plainfield site. This program offers new and reconditioned bicycles at a reduced cost. Children and teenagers from Plainfield, Elizabeth, Hillside, Roselle and Union are eligible to participate in Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County programs.
