Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley
Each day, 500 kids come to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley. They come to play, of course. But also to learn the things that their schools are cutting back on: arts, athletics, computer science — we even help them complete their homework. Each year, the Club serves 35,000 snacks and 7,000 breakfasts. Nourishment isn’t limited to food; the Club is staffed with smart, caring adults who provide the instruction and encouragement kids need to learn and grow.
Since 1962, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley has provided the critical means for parents who live and work in and around Sonoma Valley to ensure their children engage in meaningful and constructive activities during the critical after school hours of 2:00 - 7:00 p.m. and all day during the summer months and school holidays.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley is a private, nonprofit organization providing over 2000 Sonoma Valley kids aged 6-18 years with educational, recreational, and leadership programs. The Club serves approximately 40% of the total youth population in Sonoma (ages 6-18).
Our mission is to provide positive opportunities for youth to learn and succeed. Who does the Club Serve? Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley is open to all youth ages 6-18 and has a special focus on children and teens from challenging or disadvantaged circumstances. The Club reaches out to children in need, giving them support, guidance and hope for the future. The Club keeps dues low and does not turn a child away because of inability to pay.
