Welcome To the
Boys & Girls Club of Woburn
The Boys & Girls Club of Woburn is a non-profit organization serving youth in Woburn and surrounding communities. Our mission is to inspire youth to find their greatness. At the Boys & Girls Club, kids and teens have a voice to express themselves they won’t find anywhere else.
Announcing Our Club’s New Name
On September 20, 2014 it was revealed at our 50th Anniversary Celebration that the Club has been renamed and will forever be known as the James L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club of Woburn. Jamie McKeown grew up attending the Woburn Boys Club, was named the 1974 PFC Joseph L. Drew Boy of the Year and later worked as the Club’s Aquatics Director. Jamie also has the distinction of being the first Club alumnus to be elected as President of the Board of Directors. Jamie was taken from us far too soon, in 1996 at the young age of 41. Our organization is proud to honor Jamie’s contributions with this renaming.
Statement from the Boys & Girls Club of Woburn
The Boys & Girls Club of Woburn is working with the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office in its investigation of former Boys & Girls Club employee, Christopher Elwell, who is now under indictment facing a series of charges involving an underage Club member from 2000 to 2003. We are shocked and saddened by the allegations and our thoughts are with the victim and her family at this time. The safety and protection of the children we serve is the number one priority of the Boys & Girls Club. For the past 50 years, our organization has been committed to the highest standards of ethical behavior and integrity, and we do not tolerate inappropriate or illegal activity on the part of any Club staff, volunteer or youth member. In addition, all employees and volunteers must undergo a thorough criminal background check. The Boys & Girls Club of Woburn will continue to work with the authorities, and will share further information when the investigation and judicial process have been completed.
