In 1993 a group of concerned citizens in Pequannock united and made a proactive effort to better the future for youth in Northern New Jersey. With the help of local churches, schools, recreation departments and civic groups, they began providing programs that were rich in social, cultural, educational and recreational content.
Spurred by the vision of Founding President Mark Kosmack, the Boys & Girls Club of Morris County became a chartered member of Boys & Girls Clubs of America in January of 1998. Since the "grand opening" in May of 1998, the Boys & Girls Club of Morris County has attracted over 1,400 youth ages 6 - 18 as participants in an array of programs and activities.
In an effort to provide a state-of-the-art facility for its members, the Club embarked on a 3 phase major expansion plan in 1995 with the purchase of the Pequannock School. The Pequannock School's "old building" was erected in the late 1800's, with an addition completed in 1923. The "new building" was added in 1954 and the entire structure housed the Pequannock School through 1992, after which the facility remained vacant.
The Club embarked on Phase 1 of the facility development by refurbishing the "new building" to be used as the Boys & Girls Club facility, housing programs and activities for its members. Phase 2, the Randall Athletic Complex, was completed in 2004, and includes a junior-sized football field, regulation roller hockey rink, which converts to 2 basketball courts, and a utility sports field.
Plans are in the works for Phase 3, which includes demolition of the "old building" space and erecting a structure to include much needed gym space and classroom facilities.
