Corporate and individual VoluntHeroes are invited to show our Club Kids your superpowers and join us for volunteer engagement opportunities with Club Kids and Teens ages 5-18!

VoluntHeroes Sponsors who commit before February 23, 2024 will have their logo featured on our official VoluntHeroes t-shirt distributed to volunteers all year!

Reading Heroes: Volunteers will read to (and with) a group of Club members and/or engage them in a literacy activity for a one-hour session. Our experienced Club staff will ensure that each session will engage and excite volunteers and Club members alike. Bring your favorite children’s book, or we will select titles for you. This initiative is a perfect fit for corporate engagement days! Opportunities are available weekdays during Spring Break, April 1-5, or during the summer.

Back to School Bash

August 26th, 2024 - Paterson Clubhouse

August 27th, 2024 - Passaic Clubhouse

Boys and Girls Club

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

In August 2023, over 600 Paterson and Passaic area 5-13-year-old children and their families joined us for the Back to School Bash, a first-ever event hosted by the Boys & Girls Club of Paterson and Passaic.

While kids need backpacks and school supplies, 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.

Holiday Good Cheer Showcase
Saturday, December 14, 2024

Boys and Girls Club

Our Holiday Good Cheer initiative has been in existence in some form for nearly seven decades!

This year, hundreds of local families will visit our Paterson and Passaic Clubhouses in December to celebrate the holidays during our all-day Holiday Showcase. The showcase will include holiday performances by Club Kids, toys, books, holiday meals and even family pictures with Santa. We aim to provide each and every Club Kid and Teen with a gift from Santa (that’s over 1,000 gifts!) and a holiday season filled with joy. In addition, 60 Club families are provided with a holiday gift bundle that includes clothing, necessities, and meals for the entire household.

How you can help:

Become a Sponsor: Help defray costs of gifts and bring your team for a volunteer gift-wrapping session!

Host a Toy Drive: In order to collect 1,000+ toys, our Club needs lots of Santa’s helpers to assist.  This is a great opportunity for corporate partners, school-based or civic organizations, or individuals to get involved.

Send Us a Toy via Amazon: Be a Secret Santa for one or more Club Kids by selecting and sending a gift right from our Amazon Wishlist!
