Who we are

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Merced County was formed with the intent to provide community-based, safe, and affordable programs during afterschool and summer hours as an alternative to being home alone or on the streets. We are proud to be chartered through the Boys & Girls Club of America, which has provided the nation’s youth with safe havens staffed by caring adult mentors for more than 100 years.

Our programs provide children a place to learn, play, explore, and build new skills designed to instill in each child a belief in their future success, personal responsibility, and a sense of community outreach. We offer tutoring, as well as programming in the areas of character development and leadership, health and life skills, education/career development, sports and fitness, and the arts all for only $20 per child per year.

Our Mission
Boys & Girls Clubs of Merced County inspires and empowers all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring individuals.
