Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the low-income youth of our community with the opportunities they need to achieve school success

Description

The Boys and Girls Clubs of the Peninsula's vision is that all young people, if they work hard, can live fulfilling lives with a good education, a fair paying job, decent housing, and the ability to raise a family. We want kids' futures to depend more upon their own actions and less upon the circumstances into which they were born.

It's an incredible time to live in Silicon Valley. Many are enjoying unprecedented levels of growth and wealth. People from all over the world are striving to move here to participate in our culture of optimism and opportunity. At the same time, this prosperity isn't being felt by all, and too many young people are growing up disconnected from what makes our community so dynamic.

The BGCP is a fantastic organization! They provide programs for youth from an array of backgrounds. It is a safe place for kids to go and have fun, interact with others and participate in all sorts of activities. I had the please of volunteering over the Summer. Merilyn, Paitra and the rest of the BGCP staff were a joy to work with. It is extremely rewarding to work with kids!
