The Madison Square Boys & Girls Club (formerly the Madison Square Boys Club) was founded in 1884 to provide recreational and vocational programs to keep youths away from gang activity on the east side of Manhattan. Founded in a vacant store on First Avenue and 37th Street and operating as a mission of the Madison Square Church, the club relocated within the community several times before becoming an organization independent of the church in 1902. In 1984 the club changed its name to reflect the increased female participation in programs and became the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club.
