THE VARIETY BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF QUEENS

The Variety Boys & Girls Club of Queens (VBGCQ) is a 501(c)(3) organization, and the largest private, not-for-profit provider of youth services in the western Queens.  Established in 1955 in response to the overwhelming gang problem in Western Queens, VBGCQ has demonstrated its effectiveness in developing and delivering educational, recreational, and food services to over 1,000 young people per year who do not have adult supervision during non-school hours.  All VBGCQ programs fall in line with our mission, “To provide children of all backgrounds with the skills and abilities that will develop in them the qualities of self-esteem and self-confidence, which are needed to become responsible citizens and leaders.”  We accomplish this by providing our participants, who are ages 6-17, with programs in the 5 core program areas of the Club:  Visual and Performing Arts, Sports, Fitness, and Recreation, Academic Enhancement, Leadership, and Health and Life Skills.
