  • Mission:
  • The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing Santa Barbara youth with a safe, attractive environment in which they can pursue professionally-directed programs designed to encourage educational growth, cultural enrichment, athletic training and character development. Through these programs, we strive to provide our members with the tools they need to become healthy, informed, and responsible citizens.

  • Overview:
  • The Club has developed five program areas: Education and Career Development, Fine Arts, Character & Leadership, Sports, and Health and Life Skills. The Education Programs offers free math tutoring, a “Power Hour” homework club, and the use of the Club’s library and computer lab to complete school projects, as well as to learn basic computer skills, internet applications and other multimedia. The Fine Arts Program is made up of visual arts, classes in music, and dance. The Athletics Program provides sports opportunities such as soccer, basketball, football, and golf. Through the Health and Life Skills program, members learn how to appropriately interact with their peers in social situations. The Club offers specialized girls-only and boys-only programs and provides families with the opportunity for counseling. All of these quality programs are offered for an annual fee of $20; however, financial assistance is offered to those families who cannot afford this fee and no child is turned away for their lack of ability to pay.

    The BGCSB’s membership is comprised mostly of children age 6-18. The Club also serves children age 3-6, referred to as junior associates, in its soccer and basketball. Of the schools served in this geographic area, 62% are socio-economically disadvantaged (Santa Barbara City School District Accountability Report Cards 2013). We currently have over 1,000 youth as members – with close to half of whom are teenagers. We average 150 kids per day, and to up to 200-300 a day during sports activities (soccer, football and basketball). All these kids are “staying off the streets” and in our safe environment. We have several teens that are sent to the Club through the Court System or the Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (through their Teen Court) for community service. In the last five years, many of the kids that came to us to work off their community service, ended up becoming members of the Club. Once they are here they find a good, safe place with caring adults who help guide them in a positive direction.

    The Club has strong diversity in its programs and community partnerships. We collaborate with Domestic Violence Solutions (What is Love), Notes 4 Notes (Music), and Foodbank (Farmer’s Market and Nutrition Classes) to offer beneficial programming at a professional level. We work with the Santa Barbara School District to ensure that our Summer Science Lab’s curriculum is age appropriate and complementary and will help to reduce the ‘summer slide,’ where children often forget several weeks worth of education from the previous school year. We also work with the Housing Authority and Transition House in order to offer scholarships for their constituents.

    What distinguishes our Club from other organizations is our dedication to providing a protective haven for community children by being a daily walk-in neighborhood center. The Club is a safe place to go for a fun, enriching environment, and an opportunity to develop a support system outside the chaos of many of their families. The Club exists solely for the benefit and support of local children, making it a unique and invaluable resource for the Santa Barbara community.

  • History:
  • The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara has been changing lives for 76 years. Since 1938 when this Club was opened, we have served thousands of youth in a safe, community-based neighborhood facility with caring, adult professionals and life-enhancing programs and character development experiences. Located in the downtown region of Santa Barbara, the Club fulfills an unquestionable need – keeping local children off the street, out of trouble, and in a positive learning environment.
