Our Mission

To empower the youth of Nantucket to reach their fullest potential. 

Our Values

Integrity. Leadership. Diversity. Respect. Inclusion. Opportunity. The fundamental way in which we fulfill our mission is by teaching our members to uphold these values in their daily lives. 

Who We Are

Since 1945, the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club has been helping kids succeed through every walk of life. The Club means something different to every child who comes through our doors. Not just an afterschool program, we are a valuable resource; a helping hand, a place for organized athletics, a friend to talk to, a place to finish your homework, an opportunity to be creative, a place to seek guidance from a trusted mentor, and an overall safe place for our island’s children.
