CEO Message

Welcome to Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine’s website.

We are thrilled and humbled to be in our second century of service to youth in Southern Maine. For more than a century, our area of service has grown well beyond our roots in downtown Portland to include South Portland, Lewiston/Auburn, Portland's Riverton Park and Sagamore Village and communities surrounding those locations. We look forward to continued growth, impact and providing quality youth development services available to young people in Southern Maine, especially those who need us most.

At Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine, kids and teens walking through our doors find a welcoming and supportive place to spend their time after school and in summer. It’s a safe haven for many youth, where they can find help with challenges in their lives, and encouragement and opportunity toward bright futures.

At the Clubs, we continue to maintain an annual membership fee of $5 for a broad range of youth development programs – and no child is turned away if unable to pay.

At the Clubs, children and teens find supportive adults who enable them to develop skills and interests that last a lifetime. Youth find confidence and, most of all, hope as they aspire to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring students and citizens.

The legacy of our organization is made possible by the incredible combination of board, staff, volunteers, alumni members and community supporters.

GREAT FUTURES START HERE at Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maine. Enjoy your virtual visit – and please come for a personal visit if you wish to learn more – and be inspired!

Thank you,
Bob Clark, CPO
