The New Remington: Construction's Begun!
GREAT FUTURES BEGIN HERE.
Q: What age groups will the new Remington Clubhouse serve?
A: We will serve youth in grades K through 12, with programs for all, including Smart Moves; Power Hour; Passport to Manhood; Smart Girls; Torch Club; Keystone; Lyricism 101; Drama Matters; Triple Play; STEM/STEAM, arts and crafts, and podcast activities; and sports/athletics. For more information on our programs, please visit the “Our Impact” section of our website.
Q: Will there be a pool on the premises?
A: No. A pool was considered, but construction and operating costs would have exceeded our budget for the new facility.
Q: Will the Remington Clubhouse be on the ground floor of the apartment building?
A: No. The clubhouse and apartments will be housed in two separate buildings.

The New Remington: At the Heart of Lincoln Corridor's Revitalization
Our new state-of-the-art Remington Clubhouse will be a cornerstone of the powerful “Renaissance at Lincoln Park” public-private collaboration. It's the first youth development facility built in New Rochelle in over 40 years and, with 22,000 square feet, nearly twice the size of the former Remington Clubhouse, serving up to 710 members, compared to 320 at the old facility.
This transformative project will be especially meaningful for the community’s high-needs youth and their families, offering an environment equipped with learning centers, a gym, basketball court, music/podcast studio, teen room/lounge, STEAM room, kitchen, and other spaces to anchor the community and nurture our next generation of community leaders.
“This new community development is an exciting step forward for New Rochelle, offering affordable high-quality housing, coupled with the most significant new youth services facility in generations”

The New Remington: A Work in Progress
The New Remington Capital Campaign
AMPLIFYING OUR IMPACT BEGINS HERE.
Community is at the heart of both the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle and the Renaissance at Lincoln Park. Our goal is to provide our members with a quality, safe, nurturing space that offers opportunities for academic, emotional, and social growth.
The new Remington Clubhouse will allow us to serve children and families who need us most, and amplify our positive impact in New Rochelle. But we can't do it without your help. The goal of our capital campaign is to raise $15 million; to date, we've secured $10 million. Please consider investing in our children's futures today.
Join us in strengthening our community and providing local youth with opportunities to learn, grow, and thrive.
