You already know that the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe is AWESOME. But, did you know that the word AWESOME has special meaning to us?

AWESOME stands for:

Accountable for my actions

Welcoming to all

Everyone is valued

Safe and supportive

Open and honest

Make smart choices

Excited for fun

Every organization has a mission statement. We decided to go a step further and create a set of values and principles that the staff and members adhere to in everything we do at the Club.

In addition to sending a clear message of what the Club stands for and what we hope from our members, AWESOME is empowering. It’s a daily affirmation of who our members are and how awesome they are.

Join Team AWESOME!

Ensure a solid future for Tahoe’s kids

At the beginning of 2020 we launched a new fundraising initiative called Team AWESOME. AWESOME stands for the values and principles that shape everything we do at the Club and we wanted to bring our donors and supporters closer to our mission and our kids. 

Since then, things have changed significantly in the world and here at Lake Tahoe. Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe is now more crucial than ever, providing ALL children in the community with hot meals, virtual programs and emotional support during the coronavirus pandemic.

Throughout 2020 and now into 2021; the Club has used Team AWESOME donations for the following services: free food distribution, scholarships and to ensure that while schools are closed or in hybrid, that the Club remains open and dedicated to supporting our members and families during this crisis.  Thank you for your help in making sure we can keep our doors open and our members safe.

As you know, there’s no I in team. We invite you to join Team AWESOME, so together we can ensure that our kids can continue to be AWESOME once the crisis is over.

No donation is too small. We’re grateful for your help!
