Need and Population Served

Kips Bay addresses many critical needs of children, adolescents, and young adults.  These needs include:

  • a safe place where they can “belong”

  • a place to play and grow socially with peers

  • adult mentoring

  • a place to challenge oneself physically and intellectually and be recognized for accomplishments, and opportunities to give back something to others.


The Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club turns 102 years old in 2017.  We were born a century earlier on February 8, 1915, when the Kips Bay Neighborhood Association met to discuss the problem of roving gangs of boys disturbing the neighborhood.  The Association resolved to create a Boys Club to address the problem and help the boys in the neighborhood.  In the first year, a few volunteers took regular turns mentoring 105 boys while organizing recreational activities for them, such as boxing matches and games.
