Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley
About the Club
The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley is one of over 4,000 Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide. Since 1968, the vision of The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley has been to provide every child with the essential tools needed for a successful and bright future.
Every day, The Club strives to improve each child’s life by instilling self-esteem, courage, and positive values through all of our educational programs. Our youth come to The Club to receive tutoring, homework assistance, computer training, sports, social recreation, education, mentoring, arts & crafts and so much more. Our members gain confidence by developing a sense of usefulness, competence and belonging.
We show up every day to prove every kid has what it takes. We are a leading youth
development organization with skilled, caring professionals who understand where every kid is
coming from and help them shape their path toward a great future. What sets us apart:
- A safe, positive environment (encompassing both physical and emotional safety)
- Supportive relationships with adults and peers
- Access to fun and a sense of belonging

This is accomplished by providing:

The Boys & Girls Club Mission is:
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
After School Programs that work!
Helping youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquiring skills for participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of these programs. They also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.
These programs develop young people’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and live successfully as self-sufficient adults. In addition to specialized programs, informal counseling sessions occur as needed and referrals are made in circumstances when specialized counseling is needed.
