Boys & Girls Club of San Benito
Boys & Girls Clubs of America had its beginnings in 1860 with three women in Hartford, Connecticut - Mary Goodwin, Alice Goodwin and Elizabeth Hammersley. Believing that boys who roamed the streets should have a positive alternative, they organized the first Club. With character development as the cornerstone of the experience, the Club focused on capturing boys interests, improving their behavior and increasing their personal expectations and goals. The Boys and Girls of San Benito was founded in 1976 as the Boys Club of San Benito and was amended in 1991 to Boys and Girls Club of San Benito.
