Boys & Girls Clubs of South Coast BC

What drives everything we do at Boys & Girls Clubs is the knowledge and belief that every kid is amazing. At our 12 neighbourhood-based Clubs, our people – cool, young mentors and role models – bond with kids by really seeing and hearing them. They use activities – sports, homework clubs, creative arts, healthy food and cooking programs, leadership development and safe access to the online world – as tools to connect with kids. The result? Kids choose to belong here.  BGC develops meaningful and enduring relationships with kids that help them to know they matter, that we believe in them, and that they should believe in themselves.
