Boys and Girls Clubs of Silicon Valley


Our mission:

To inspire and empower all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring adults.
Founded in 1944, Boys & Girls Clubs of Silicon Valley (BGCSV) is a non-profit organization that offers innovative and effective after school and summer enrichment programs for low income, high risk Santa Clara County youth.  BGCSV currently serves 3,000 regular members and more than 15,000 youth annually, ages 6-18 years old, at TEN (10) Clubhouse locations in Santa Clara County.  A chartered affiliate of Boys & Girls Clubs of America, BGCSV utilizes a proven youth development strategy that nurtures young people’s self-esteem by instilling in them a sense of belonging, usefulness, competence, and influence. Clubs engage youth in mentoring relationships with caring adults and offer age-appropriate and diverse programs provided by trained youth development staff, supplemented by hundreds of volunteers in the five core program areas.

“I am proud to say that I am an example of how the Club can indeed change lives and create futures.  As a Club alumnus, I look back when I was a kid and going to my Clubhouse after school.  There I acquired critical thinking skills, developed strong work ethics, learned the importance of giving back to my community and discovered that I really could achieve my goals. That’s because I was around staff that believed in me and allowed me to excel academically, socially, emotionally and physically.  Thanks to Boys & Girls Clubs, a young boy was able to reach high and achieve a great future.”-Max Duganne, President & CEO.
