We are a non-profit after school & summer program for the kids & teens of the Carlsbad, California community. For a $50 per year registration fee and up to $50 per month in program fees – kids can be picked up from school, taken to one of our one of our Club Houses where they then can select from a full array of programs we offer: art, dance, drama, singing, swimming, cooking, computer lab, and tons of different sports activities. We have 2 clubs – one in downtown Carlsbad which serves 150 kids and another in Bressi Ranch, in its final stages of completion – it will serve another 300-350 kids. One unique aspect of the Boys & Girls Clubs is we will never turn away a family who is unable to afford the program. Last year $150K in scholarships were granted.

Our program needs help!

•Operating costs are $1.5M per year & we are 100% local donor supported.
•Every year we start at zero again
•We currently have over 200 kids on the waiting list and could take more if we had more transportation options, which takes funding.
