Our Mission and Vision

Our Mission is:


Our Vision is:

To be the place in our community where all young people are welcome. To have all of our members advance each grade level on time and prepared for the next school year. To be a second home for our members where they get to participate in programs and have experiences that they might not otherwise have had.

We believe in education, and to that end we make sure our members are introduced to the joy of learning through fun and entertaining lessons and activities. Our Program Leaders design programs that engage our members in reading, spelling, and writing to develop their Language Arts Skills. They integrate math into sports programs so that our members are constantly practicing what they are learning in school and applying that knowledge to real-life situations. We also explore science, geography, history, and fitness. At the end of the day, we want to know that we have given our members the opportunity to excel in all areas of their life.

At Boys & Girls Club Lake Tahoe, we provide:

A safe place to learn and grow
Ongoing relationships with caring adult professionals and volunteers
Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences
Focus on educational attainment and good citizenship.

Our Impact

Boys and Girls Club of America

The Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe is affiliated with the Boys and Girls Club of America. Our Club follows the principles and guidelines of our parent organization; however our Club is managed and financed entirely separately from BGCA.

BGCA was conceived in Connecticut in the 1860s when local women started programs for young boys living in poverty and without positive influences and education in their lives. It became a nationwide movement in the 1906 and received Congressional Charter in 1956. Girls have long been an important part of the Clubs and the name was officially changed to recognize this in 1990.
