Boys and Girls Club of Manhattan


To inspire and enable all young people to realize their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.


In 2017, the Boys and Girls Club of Manhattan served 2,638 youth in Manhattan and Wamego, with an average of 810 each day. With the help of the Club, families have a safe, fun, and educational place for their children before and after-school, in-service days, and during spring and summer school breaks.   


We serve: 

34% of USD 383 (Manhattan/Odgen) students

16% of USD 320 (Wamego) students


36% of our members receive Free or Reduced Lunch Services

30 % of our members are from single-parent homes

14% of our members are from military families


Services provided by the Boys & Girls Club are reduced to ensure affordability for our families. 

Annual membership (calendar year) $30. This membership fee is waived for children recieving State health insurance and all active and reserve military members. 

The cost to the Club is $1,260 per school year per child.

We charge families just $200/ semester or $400 for the school year. Families have the option of volunteering to cover half the cost of a semester fee. For qualifying families, the Club can provide up to a 50% scholarship for programs. 

The Club works to make up the difference of the actual cost of the Club with fundraising events, grants, individual and corporate giving, and third party events such as Grow Green Match Day.
