Boys & Girls Club in Stuart

In August 2015, Boys & Girls Clubs of Martin County opened at its new location in Stuart -- 1300 SE 10th St, near JD Parker Elementary School and on the campus of St. Joseph Catholic Church.

The Club’s 12,000 square-foot building features a learning and technology lab, art studio/science lab, a well-stocked library, and multi-purpose space to support all Club programs, including homework help, tutoring, SPARK Physical Education and the HERO Challenge.

The proximity to St. Joseph’s gives an opportunity for the church and the Club to partner in many ways. Reverend Noel McGrath, Pastor of Saint Joseph says, “The opportunity for our parish to facilitate the academic and social needs of youth and impact their lives reflects directly upon our own mission to serve the needs of the community and gives our parishioners opportunities to serve as volunteers. We look forward to many years of helping each other.”
