TOGETHER | WE RISE

past event
On September 17, we hosted Together | We Rise, a virtual event to recognize and thank our staff and supporters. Nearly 700 people came together to acknowledge the six month mark of when the Bay Area went into shelter-in-place and to reflect and celebrate the good work of our community. We appreciated the opportunity to acknowledge our supporters and staff who have stood by us throughout the pandemic, generously giving of their time, talent, and treasure. In case you missed the event, or if you want to watch it again, go to kidsclub.org/werise.You may need to log in to the event or register again, but once you fill in your details, you will be directed to the event page to watch the show.
Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco is a community that thrives because we value diversity, inclusion, kindness, and respect. Racism has no place in our community - or any community. Not just today but every day, we stand together with our Black families, members, colleagues, supporters, and the entire Black community. We all have a responsibility as role models to speak out against systemic racism, promote understanding, and create a world that is smarter, stronger, and kinder.

We encourage you to take action at kidsclub.org/helpnow and to share these resources with others.

A Culture of Safety

At Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (BGCSF) the safety of our young people is always our number one priority. Our organization is committed to the highest standards of safety and integrity and has zero tolerance for behavior that harms children. We take pride in the layout and design of our eight traditional Clubhouses, six School-Based Clubs, and Camp Mendocino. To compliment this, our caring staff are focused on providing both physically and emotionally safe places for our children and teens to thrive.
