Our History


Boys & Girls Clubs of Mason Valley opened for kids and teens in 1999 in a single clubhouse when an old mechanic building in Yerington was transformed into a fully functioning Club. The Club has since expanded its reach to six locations throughout Yerington, Silver Springs, Dayton, and Hawthorne. With more than 400 youth streaming through our doors, our members participate daily in academic and recreational programming. Youth have access to everything, whether it’s a hot meal, a strong role model, or unique inclusive programs. Every kid and teen can get involved and learn something new at our clubhouses! We provide safety and support during critical hours of the day. 

Our vision is to build the community’s social and economic fabric by ensuring all our members’ academic and career success. We achieve this by providing impactful programs that increase academics, build character and encourage healthy lifestyles. Our work is only possible with the commitment of 50 full and part-time employees and more than 20 volunteers. We continuously serve and empower our youth thanks to our dedicated board of directors and our fantastic team.
