OUR CORE AREAS

Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley serves youth with high-yield activities, targeted programs and regular attendance while focusing on five key elements: safe, positive environment, fun, supportive relationships, opportunities and expectations, and recognition.

CHARACTER & LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT
Programs in this area strive to encourage youth to develop a positive self-image, establish meaningful relationships during interactions with Club and community. We also encourage youth in this program to engage in the democratic process and become culturally aware and respectful toward their own and others’ cultural identities.

EDUCATION & CAREER DEVELOPMENT
We work with young people to explore their abilities and apply these skills to real-world situations. We help them understand basic educational disciplines and familiarize them with technology to show how it can help them personally and professionally.

HEALTH & LIFE SKILLS
We care about health, which is why this program focuses on educating members on living positive, successful lives as self-sufficient adults who can set personal goals and foster their own well-being.

THE ARTS
Programs in The Arts enable young people to hone their creativity and develop their world view through knowledge and appreciation of visual and performing arts, crafts and creative writing.

SPORTS, FITNESS, & RECREATION
Athletic competition and fitness programs can provide many benefits for our youth. The Sports, Fitness and Recreation programs we offer will develop fitness abilities, social skills, positive use of leisure time, as well as encourage stress management and appreciation of the environment.
