rings to put them on the path to success. As the nation prepares to go
back to school, the Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley
wants to ensure out-of-school is part of the conversation. What happens
during these hours can significantly impact a child’s life path.”

summer programs, we can reverse negative trends facing our Valley’s
youth,” says Jim Queen, Director of Operations.
It takes the knowledge, skills, and behaviors kids learn both in
school and out of school to put young people on the right path.
Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Naugatuck Valley offers programs at
its Shelton, Seymour, and Ansonia clubs as well as satellite programs at
schools. All Valley children are welcome.
“I am forever grateful for my Boys & Girls Club, whose doors
opened for a young, timid, unsure little boy and helped to transform him
into the confident, determined young man who stands before you,” says
Fred Dapp, 2014 Youth of the Year.
