Sunnydale Revitalization

Together with our community partners, we are building a bright future for Sunnydale residents.

On the horizon is a new, 11,000-square-foot Sunnydale Clubhouse.

Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco grows deep roots in every community it touches. Since 1991, we’ve committed ourselves to helping youth in the Sunnydale neighborhood. The trust we have built and the relationships that we have cultivated are apparent as the neighborhood undergoes a dramatic transformation.
Building a Better Sunnydale
We have partnered with more than 25 local organizations to ensure the City’s revitalization of Sunnydale (a HOPE SF project) provides ample opportunities for youth, families, and residents in the area. Working in concert with organizations like Mercy Housing, San Francisco’s Rec & Park Department, Wu Yee Childcare, and Related California, we’re developing a community-first effort that is strengthening the bonds between Sunnydale residents and their neighbors around San Francisco.

On the horizon is a new, 11,000-square-foot Boys & Girls Club that will partner with Mercy Housing, Wu Yee, and Herz Park (encompassing Coffman Pool, a baseball field, two outdoor basketball courts, a new playground, and a proposed new gymnasium), to provide safe indoor and outdoor spaces for neighborhood children and teens to learn, grow, and succeed. While the collaborative project is still in its planning and fundraising phase, there is growing excitement in the community about this long-overdue new chapter.

A key part of our Citywide Creative Arts Program is our partnerships, which not only enhance members’ experience at the Club, but also expose them to potential career and college opportunities.

Meet Our Youth

"The community, especially youth, have a voice. They want to be able to express themselves and it's important for everyone to be able to help them in their journey of becoming who they want to be."
