Our primary focus area is out of school time programs designed to provide comprehensive youth development services, activities and programs for youth in the northstate region.
Mission: To inspire and enable all young people to reach their full potential as responsible, productive and caring citizens.
Vision: Provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.
For over 100 years, Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation have shared four unique characteristics that have proven successful in attracting youth from all backgrounds, and that enhance the club’s abilities to work in partnership with other organizations possessing similar goals and values.
Every day young people from all walks of life come to the club to find friendship, get help with homework and participate in a wide variety of fun and enriching activities like cooking classes, computer programming, leadership, STEM, dance, mentoring, music, art and recreation. BGCNV has been at the forefront of serving underserved, economically disadvantaged youth in after-school and teen services throughout Butte and Glenn Counties. To ensure our young people achieve great futures, BGCNV is uniquely positioned to provide a high-quality experience that provides key evidence-informed prevention strategies to address the unprecedented need in our region for child care, trauma responsive care and services to address food insecurity.

The cost of an annual membership is only $100 and young people whose families cannot afford to pay are eligible to apply for a scholarship. The true cost of annual services to youth is approximately $2,000 per member however, through the generosity of our community donors and funders, no child is ever turned away for economic reasons and we do not give up on our kids.
