Each year, Madison Square Boys & Girls Club provides essential programming to over 5,000 young people in New York City communities most in need. Its Clubhouses provide a safe, nurturing environment that supports academic success, good character & citizenship, and the adoption of a healthy lifestyle for youth ages 6-18.
To further its mission, Madison embarked on a project to build a new, flagship facility on West 155th Street and Bradhurst Avenue. The four-story Clubhouse will contain modern educational spaces and recreational facilities including a rooftop soccer field and indoor basketball court, as well as innovative visual and performing arts spaces including a music and production studio, screening room and digital media and technology lab. The Clubhouse will also serve as the organization’s new citywide administrative hub and headquarters.
