The New Directions Boys was the group of all the boys in the New Directions. The head of the boys was Will. The piano player, Brad, was also often counted as a member of the New Directions, although he never sang.

Kurt was also sometimes considered as one of New Directions' boys and joined in their group in gender-split-mashup competitions, even though he wanted to perform with the girls. However, Will usually sent him back.

The New Directions' Boys were simply just the boys who were in New Directions. They are not a separate club, but they often separated from the girls for Boys Power numbers such as It's My Life/Confessions Part IIShout It Out Loud, and Stop! In the Name of Love/Free Your Mind. Finn, Artie and Kurt originally joined in the first episode of the show (Pilot), while Noah Puckerman, Matt Rutherford and Mike Chang joined in Preggers. As the show progressed, more male members joined the club, including Sam Evans, Blaine Anderson, Rory Flanagan, Joe Hart, Ryder Lynn and Jake Puckerman.

Sam joined at the early part of Season Two, but left the club after New York, as his family moved away from Ohio, but he later returned in Hold On To Sixteen, thanks to Finn and Rachel to help in the 2011 Western Ohio Sectional Championship. Blaine joined to be closer to Kurt, his boyfriend. Rory, an exchange student from Ireland, also joined the club because of Finn. Three band members of the Jazz Band, also joined only for Sectionals, due to the lack of members. In Big Brother, Joe joined the club after Quinn convinced him to do so.

In Goodbye, Finn, Puck, Kurt and Mike graduated, while Jake was accepted, and Ryder joined because of his performance in Grease. After the end of the fourth season, Joe quit for unknown reasons, and, although Ryder said he was going to quit from the club, he returned in the fifth season without no explanation, following his problem with Unique.

Once the glee club is revived, Roderick and Mason McCarthy are the first new male members. Spencer Porter later joins as well. Near the end of the season, more members join: Myron Muskovitz, Alistair and also the Warblers.

Others were a part of them in the past, included Jesse St. JamesBryan Ryan, and Will himself was a member during his high school years.
