Program philosophy

Daily programs are the heart of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley and the reason that young people come to our Clubs. Programs must be diverse, engaging, and appealing to boys and girls of all ages and backgrounds. All our members can choose from several activities or programs at any given time. A safe, positive and fun environment has been created by offering children programs in the following areas:

Character and Leadership Development

Empowers youth to support and influence their Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships with others, develop a positive self-image, participate in the democratic process and respect their own and other's cultural identities.

Education and Career Development

Enables youth to become proficient in basic educational disciplines, apply learning to everyday situations and embrace technology to optimize employability.

Health and Life Skills

Develops young peoples' capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and develop the competencies to live successfully as self-sufficient adults.

The Arts

Enables youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of visual and tactile arts and crafts, performing arts and creative writing.

Sports, Fitness and Recreation
