Opening Doors to Opportunity

Every kid deserves a place. A place to feel safe. A place to feel connected. A place to belong. Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid Central Coast provides such places – where kids can go after school and during the summer to grow beyond the classroom. Since the first doors opened in 1966 Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid Central Coast has a strong reputation for providing safe, educational, and fun programs for local youth between the ages of 6-18. What started as one building—the flagship Railroad site in Santa Maria—has now expanded to two counties and 22 Clubs, with more than 2,700 registered youth members. Through outreach, including sponsored arts and sports programs, Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid Central Coast benefits an additional 4,000 local children each year. We believe every kid has what it takes. The mission and core values of Boys & Girls Clubs fuel our commitment to promoting safe, positive and inclusive environments for all. Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid Central Coast supports all youth and teens – of every race, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, ability, socio-economic status, and religion – in reaching their full potential.


At Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid Central Coast, there is nothing more important than the safety of our youth members. We work every day to create a safe, fun environment, so kids can have every opportunity to be successful in life. We offer safe, inclusive spaces and experiences that empower members’ learning and growth. Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid Central Coast continually updates and innovates robust safety policies, programs and training for our Club staff and volunteers that are designed to protect young people from threats that are present in our society.
