The Grenville Baker Boys & Girls Club is a CBO that provides college prep programs and support services to our members in the community who are mostly underrepresented groups. As an organization we have a unique and special opportunity to take those candidates, groups of 20-25 students, on weekend college visits once a month around the northeast and also on 4 to 5 night college tours during their winter and summer breaks around the country. During their Junior and senior year we work with them on S.A.T prep, college essay writing and FAFSA and scholarship workshops, but before any of that becomes relevant they are members of our organization begging in elementary school. As a CBO we help to teach, tutor, nurture and create great students and community leaders from grades K-12. We keep them actively involved in service projects, provide academic support, take them to leadership conferences across the country, and expose them to small business, skilled trades and different career opportunities. We are an organization that provides a great, safe and supportive space for them to learn and grow and also engage our club members in a more proactive approach to prepare for and strive for higher education.

To inspire and enable all young people to realize their potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens and community leaders of tomorrow.
The Grenville Baker Boys & Girls Club engages our club members in a more proactive approach to prepare for and strive for higher education. We try every year to find different schools to target for our club members to visit and schools for us to build relationships with in order to become a resource for those schools that are looking for great diverse applicants. Our CBO has the capability to expose future candidates to potential universities at an early age, and help sell those universities to our students (It is not enough just to sell your students to a school, but also sell the school to your students). As an organization we will continue to do all the leg work, outreach and research we can to identify institutions and build relationships with them. We will host recruiters, provide a space for college fairs and provide a wealth of qualified hard working students and their families to participate in activities with university representatives. We have deep roots in the community and active teenage members as well as their families. We will visit admissions personnel at college fairs, visit campuses and anything else we can do as an organization to engage with universities who are looking for qualified diverse candidates that have years of experience and training in education, community development and leadership training provided by a great CBO, like our Boys and Girls Club.
