Research shows that Boys & Girls Clubs play a key role in reducing delinquency, increasing academic achievement, providing access to technology, developing career goals, and improving attitudes toward school. The Clubs provide a safe and supportive environment, fun activities, supportive relationships with peers and adults, increased opportunities to learn and develop, and recognition of achievement.
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Diablo Valley has been an integral part of the Diablo Valley community and surrounding area for almost 60 years, providing services to thousands of young people. Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Club works collaboratively to fulfill our mission through ongoing partnerships with families, volunteers, educators, businesses, and community leaders to offer quality after-school and summer programs at little or no cost to families – a fact that sets us apart from other after-school programs.
The Club is open after school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, from 2-6pm, and Wednesday from 1-6pm. Programs include Character & Leadership Development, Education & Career Development, Health & Life Skills, The Arts, and Sports Fitness & Recreation.
