Thank you for helping to create a positive place for kids to learn and grow.

Message from the CEO, Dana Fraticelli

Our vision is to provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who walks through 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.

Boys & Girls Clubs provide:

  • Safe places to play, laugh, discover and learn during out-of-school time, including the summer.
  • Life-changing programs that help youth advance in three key outcome areas: Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles.
  • Opportunities to build new skills so that kids can succeed and receive recognition for personal accomplishments.
  • Ongoing, supportive relationships with caring adults and friends that foster a sense of belonging, responsibility, civility and civic engagement.

In the fall, we expanded our reach with two new after school programs at Ellerhorst Elementary School in Pinole and West Contra Costa Salesian Boys & Girls Club in Richmond.  Our Martinez Clubhouse continues to serve more than 100 kids every day, offering high quality programs and activities in a safe and fun environment.

If you’d like make a difference in the life of a child, please consider the gift of Club Membership – a second home, a positive place to learn and grow, a safe place to have fun and be a kid.
