Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the low-income youth of our community with the opportunities that enable them to graduate ready to succeed in college or career.


Founded in 1958, the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Peninsula is now the largest youth development organization on the San Francisco Peninsula. It is a place where hundreds of youth ages 6-18 years old are welcomed every day during the vulnerable after school hours. At each of our nine sites, a team of development professionals and volunteers work through a broad range of programs including: Academics, Science and Technology, Social and Physical Education, Life Skills, Athletics and Visual and Performing Arts.


"We prepare youth to do life"

  • We provide a safe place where all young people are welcome and can belong, where we...
  • Deliver fun and engaging programs to attract and retain them to...
  • Nurture positive relationships that...
  • Inspire a sense of hope and opportunity and guide them to develop the attitudes and behaviors they need to...
  • Succeed in school, become economically self sufficient, and develop healthy family and community relationships.

Our efforts would not be possible without the hundreds of volunteers who dedicate their time and talents to our clubs. Your volunteer efforts will bring enrichment to the lives of our youth and empower them to become positive role models and leaders in their communities.

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!
