Since 1944, BGCSM has given kids and teens what they need to succeed, providing a safe and nurturing environment to develop socially, succeed in school, stay physically active and prepare for positive futures.
Our objective is to serve children from all backgrounds, regardless of economic circumstances. The main focus of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica is to provide positive activities for youth ages 6-18 during the hours they are not in school. Growing up is challenging but we are excited to be able to stimulate and encourage youth as they grow. Our goal is to provide a chance for every child to feel a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.
We currently serve approximately 2,429 young people, ages 6 to 18, through Club memberships. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica are made up of 10 locations, serving youth from 128 zip codes throughout the Los Angeles area.
