The Charities – Boys And Girls Club of San Francisco


Who We Are

Founded in 1891, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco serves more than 1,200 youth (ages 6 to 18) per day, offering a safe place to learn and grow. We operate nine Clubhouses in the city’s toughest neighborhoods, as well as Camp Mendocino, a residential summer Camp in Mendocino County. Dedicated to helping the kids who need us most, BGCSF provides a broad range of programs that inspire young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. Our award-winning programs and professional staff help our members build strong character and skills that will last a lifetime. Our five core program areas are:

* The Arts
* Education & Career Development
* Health & Life Skills
* Sports, Fitness & Recreation
* Character & Leadership Development

Our Mission

Our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.

Core Belief

We believe that young people will achieve extraordinary things when they are provided with high-quality staff, programs and facilities in an environment that promotes respect, responsibility and fun.

Youth Development Approach

Our Clubhouses, staff, and programs come together to create stability, consistency, and a sense of physical and emotional safety for our members. Our youth development professionals serve each day as positive role models who provide ongoing caring relationships with our youth. They work to develop moral character and instill a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness, and influence. Staff members make the Club feel like home, fostering a family atmosphere and creating a sense of ownership for members.
