Barber Elementary School and 5 members from Grover C. Fields Middle School, the New Bern Boys & Girls Club footprint has constantly grown over the last 5 years. It would eventually open the doors of the New Bern Teen Center in April of 2016. Congrats to the New Bern Boys & Girls Club on 5 great years of service to the New Bern Community!!
