morethanaclub_whiteAt West End House we are redefining what it means to be a Boys & Girls Club. We foster a safe and secure environment for our young people, but that’s only the beginning. We’re helping children and teens from all over Boston progress and graduate from high school, and then persist and graduate from college.

At West End House, youth are learning about healthy lifestyles and eating nutritious meals. They are expressing themselves creatively, performing in bands and staging plays. Our children and youth are improving their grades and making giant academic strides. They are discovering who they are and how to reach their full potential. Day after day and year after year, West End House is making a difference for the young people of Boston and their families.
