Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their fullest potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Since 1955 the Boys & Girls Club has had a home in Martinez, CA . Originally incorporated as the Boys Club of Martinez, the Club was renamed the Boys & Girls Club of Martinez in 1986 and added a chartered club unit in Rodeo in 1988. In June 2002, the organization adopted its new name of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Diablo Valley . The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Diablo Valley currently reaches over 1,000 youth aged 6-18 through its various programs.
Our club teaches through word and deed, the importance of living honorably. Through programs, activities and everyday interactions, our club reinforces service and selflessness, caring and compassion, honesty and integrity, freedom and fairness, inclusion and diversity, right and wrong. In today’s world, success is often defined in terms of educational achievement, in the sense of acquiring knowledge. Although important and part of the club experience, what matters most is not the acquisition of knowledge alone, but teaching young people to live honorable lives.
Our youth development philosophy is the way our professionals communicate and interact with young people to build them up with: a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness and influence.
