Our mission is to nurture the development of our young people and guide them along the path to future success by providing an environment that supports excellence in education, good character and citizenship, and a healthy lifestyle.
Our vision is that all Chester youth reach their full potential and make a successful transition to adulthood, while giving back to their community now and in the future.

The Boys & Girls Club of Chester received a $25,000 donation courtesy of the Comcast Foundation that will enhance educational and mentoring opportunities for Chester youth. This donation occurred as a result of the Club's support of Club Tech 2014, a digital literacy program through the Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) that aims to make technology accessible, intriguing and fun.
At the Boys & Girls Club of Chester, youth are engaged in Club Tech classes several times a week and every Saturday. These classes provide an overview of Microsoft Office, with targeted instruction on Microsoft Powerpoint and marketing software applications. Students receive critical educational tools to improve their technological skills that create greater opportunities for them within the Club's mentor program.
