Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club is now over 102 years old. We were born a century earlier on February 8, 1915, when the Kips Bay Neighborhood Association met to discuss the problem of roving gangs of boys disturbing the neighborhood. The Association resolved to create a Boys Club to address the problem and help the boys in the neighborhood. In the first year, a few volunteers took regular turns mentoring 105 boys while organizing recreational activities for them, such as boxing matches and games.

Mission:
To enrich and enhance the quality of life for young people by providing educational and developmental programs, with special emphasis on youngsters between ages 6-18 who come from disadvantaged or disenfranchised circumstances.

Vision:
Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club exists to assist young people in realizing and achieving their potential for growth and development utilizing our state-of-the-art facilities, trained and motivated staff, and nationally renowned programs to produce positive contributors to society.
