We inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.

Part of the community since 1891, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (BGCSF) currently serves more than 1,700 youth (ages 6-18) per day. We serve more than 18,000 youth per year at 15 program sites-including eight Clubhouses located in the neighborhoods with the fewest resources, one extension site, five school-based sites and Camp Mendocino - a 2,000-acre residential summer camp that provides a creative and fun outdoor experience for youth. We are open "when kids need us most" - after school, on most school holidays and during the summer. We offer safe places where young people can learn, grow, and succeed.
