About Us

Boys & Girls Clubs of The Tar River Region has an impressive history that began over 50 years ago with the establishment of the Boys Club in Rocky Mount, NC. The organization has since grown to serve thousands of young people between the ages of 5-18 in three locations (Tarboro, Rocky Mount, and Nashville) in the Twin Counties.

We are providing a world class club experience that assures success is in the reach of every club member that walks through our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.

In compliance with the youth development strategy of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, we pledge to offer programs to promote the development of young people by instilling a sense of competence, a sense of usefulness, a sense of belonging and a sense of power or influence. When this strategy is fully implemented, self esteem is enhances and an environment is created which help club members achieve their full potential.
