Let's hear it for the girls!


Although Madison started as a boys club, it wasn’t long before the girls in the neighborhood made themselves known. While girls participated in Club programs from the very beginning, their involvement was limited to dramatics, swimming and socials. After a #pressforprogress, the trustees recognized the need for girls’ programs and were instrumental in founding the Girls Club of New York. However, in 1984 the Clubs joined forces and the organization was renamed Madison Square Boys & Girls Club. #TBT #MadisonJourney
