CELEBRATING 50 YEARS AT THE OGDENSBURG BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB

GREAT FUTURES START Here


The Ogdensburg Boys and Girls Club is a positive place for kids!  The OBGC was established in 1964 by a group of people who believed a place was needed to serve boys of the Ogdensburg area to provide them with educational, recreational, social skills and other positive traits.  Admitting its first ever girl member in 1975, today the Ogdensburg Boys and Girls Club serves over 1,500 youth from Ogdensburg and St. Lawrence County, through membership and community outreach.

The addition of the John E. Claxton Memorial Learning Center in the fall of 2002 expanded the club's academic opportunities for its members establishing "Power Hour" for students to receive tutoring in all academic areas.  The learning center also hosts the newest addition to the club, the SUNY Attain Lab, which opened in the spring of 2005.  The attain lab contains 15 state of the art computers and a smartboard with built in academic coursework for children and adults of all ages, including internet access.  The lab is in partnership with SUNY Research Foundation and is serving club members and much of the adult community free of charge.
