Working at BGCSF
Working at Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco is a rewarding and enjoyable experience. You’ll take part in shaping the life of a young person, either directly as program staff or indirectly through administrative, marketing or fundraising work, without which our organization could not run. No matter your specific position, you’ll have fun along the way.
We think Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco is one of the top nonprofits to work for in the Bay Area. But, don’t just take our word for it. Read what a few of our current and former employees say about working here.
Make An Impact
Be part of a team that is making a difference in the lives of young people, every single day.
“92% of the seniors in our college prep program from last year are college bound. That took patience, consistency, and adjustments. But we did it, and I am proud to be part of the team that made it happen.”
- Len Smolburd, Former Director of Development (11 years of service)
Mentor a young person.
“I was on the verge of becoming another teen with anger issues, taking things out on everyone around me. But BGCSF staff and the Club provided me with care and attention. I immediately had staff to talk to as role models and they helped to boost my morale and confidence in myself.”
- Irlanzujuan Martin, 2011 Youth of the Year
Change a life.
"I came from a world of violence, ignorance, hate, and alcoholism; my world was not safe and I did not have anyone to rely on until I started attending Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco. Because of them, I have risen above my circumstances and have been empowered to step into my greatness!”
- Esteffany Calderon, 2012 Citywide Youth of the Year
“Because the Club didn’t give up on me, I didn't give up on myself.”
- Jaienda Kumar, 2014 Youth of the Year
Learn & Grow
We place a priority on professional development and support our employees through individual mentoring, intensive in-house quarterly trainings and certifications, management preparation programs for current and future managers, annual retreats/mini-conferences, and job shadowing.
“There are really good benefits here, and you have the opportunity to really make this job a career. That’s something that you just don’t see at all non-profits.”
- Carlton Eichelberger, Area Director
