Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We aim to create a fun, safe and constructive environment for youth in our community when they are not in school or at home. Approximately 37% of our youth members are from single-parent families; more than 10% are under the care of non-biological guardians. More than 80% of our youth members qualified for free and reduced lunch at their schools, as these members live in households supported by incomes at or below the poverty level. These households face overwhelming obstacles and often have to make trade-offs within living expenses, making complicated decisions to balance support of their children.We know that creating a safe space that will encourage and engage young people to participate in productive enrichment activities, with positive role models, we can continue to live up to our Mission motto of providing “a safe place where kids can be kids!”

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

By offering a framework for youth development with proven, nationally-recognized enrichment and prevention-based programs, our youth members receive knowledge, skills, and an understanding of the attributes they need to pursue their dreams and succeed in life.
Our programs represent five core areas: character and leadership development; education and career development; health and life skills; the arts and sports; and fitness and recreation. Our aim is to help children ages 5-18 develop and demonstrate strong character through model-positive values – including honesty, integrity, caring, fairness and an appreciation of community and cultural diversity – while encouraging education and lifelong learning. Our affordable costs and scholarship programs provide access for our youth and enable us continue to meet a vital community need for families who have little or no resources to otherwise provide these opportunities to their children.

With guidance with trained youth development specialists, we are able to provide tested, proven and nationally recognized programs in core program areas that closely align with the developmental needs of all young people, which include:
• Career Development
• Character & Leadership
• Sports & Recreation
• The Arts
• Health and Wellness
• Education
We also offer community-based, locally developed programs designed to fit the needs of our youth members.

In Since 1994, the Boys & Girls Club of South San Luis Obispo County has mentored thousands of young people, supporting them in their efforts to grow and achieve personal goals. Our Youth Development Professionals are invested in our youth and we are invested in our team. Many members of our team are seasoned Boys & Girls Clubs professionals and have participated in national and local training and mentoring accredited programs.

We have increased the number of youth we serve by more than 75%. Over the past three summers, our nine-week, full-day camp program membership increased from 90 youth members to more than 200. Our overall registered membership has increased from 220 to more than 700 registered members. We have grown from one site and now offer programming at four sites in our south county community.
