We believe greatness exists in every child, and through the power of positive mentorship, we can change a child’s trajectory for a lifetime. Our goal is to help our youth reach their full potential by ensuring they have access to the tools they need to pursue greatness. To the core of our DNA, we believe every child and teen we serve has the potential to do great things, and it is our privilege to invest in opportunities to help them unlock that potential. Our passion for our mission grows with every youth who overcomes an obstacle, achieves success in school, discovers his or her voice, and unlocks his or her greatness.
WHERE WE SERVE
Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Orange Coast serves youth and families in the cities of Costa Mesa, Irvine, Newport Beach, Orange, and Santa Ana. These cities are home to the next generation of leaders.
WHY WE EXIST
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Orange Coast provides a positive, healthy learning environment for children, and it’s what we’ve done locally since 1941. With each year that passes, our Club curriculum takes progressively longer strides toward strengthening the academic aptitude, physical fitness, health awareness, and career ambitions of our members, preparing them to graduate high school with a plan for their futures. Today, the youth of Central Orange Coast are growing up with extraordinary opportunities, some of which also present uncharted risks. With more than 200,000 youth under the age of 18 within our reach in the Central Orange Coast region, we are called to do everything we can to help as many as possible reach greatness.
