Prep Club Kids for Academic Success in 2024 at the Back to School Bash

August 26th - Paterson Clubhouse

August 27th - Passaic Clubhouse

Boys and Girls Club

Join us as we prepare over 1,000 Club Kids for the new school year!

While kids need backpacks and school supplies to feel confident and prepared for school, many also need new school uniforms, new shoes, and haircuts – the cost of which can really add up for families. At the Back to School Bash, all of these items are provided at no cost to Club Kids, thanks to our generous community and corporate partners.

Barbers, hair braiders, and hair stylists from the community volunteer their time to provide free cuts and styles to Club Kids; community partners provide information and resources to local families. Music, a photo booth and Clubhouse tours round out the fun. Best of all, Club Kids start the school year with the love and support of the entire community behind them.

Join us!
