Madison Square Boys & Girls Club

The Madison Square Boys & Girls Club’s (MSBGC) new four-story, 45,000 square foot flagship clubhouse in Upper Harlem is a new model for what Boys & Girls Clubs can be. Opening its doors in July 2019, the new club provides access to much-needed resources – recreation, social interaction, academic support, technology, and the comfort of a safe and secure environment.

The program for the new clubhouse accommodates young people, ages 6-18 and includes multi-use athletic facilities, such as a 6,000 square foot gymnasium for basketball, volleyball, climbing, and other indoor sports; a rooftop play space for soccer; age-specific program spaces, such as a teen Center; tutoring and quiet learning spaces; dance, performance, visual arts, music, and production studios; a screening room; digital media and technology labs; dining and gathering space; and offices for management and staff.

Rogers Partners has been proud to lead MSBGC on a journey to realize its vision for the next generation of Boys & Girls Clubs. The institution’s rich history serving a diverse population and its dedication to providing a safe, nurturing, and educational environment was an inspiration in the design vision.
