Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco

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 1,639 youth (ages 6-18) per day. We serve more than 18,000 youth per year at 11 program sites—including eight Clubhouses located in the neighborhoods with the fewest resources, one extension site, two 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.
