About Us

We're a proud member of the Vista Chamber since 1972!

The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Vista (BGCV) is to empower every Club member, through safe and impactful experiences to graduate high school with a plan for college or a career, contribute to their community, and live a healthy life. BGCV’s vision is to be the premiere youth organization for all of Vista. We meet the needs of over 1,300 youth ages 5-18 at six sites in in Vista and Oceanside. BGCV is open “when kids need us most” – after school, on most school holidays and during the summer. BGCV offers safe places designed just for kids where they can learn, grow, and succeed for an entire childhood. Club programs help kids build healthy habits for life and how to be resilient leaders through mentorship, accountability and modeling good behavior. BGCV offers preventative programs from ages 5-18 that keep kids on track for academic success, character development and living healthy lifestyles. BGCV is led by 14 full-time staff and 44 part-time staff and 15 members serving on the Board of Directors supplemented with over 350 community volunteers a year.

Kids are 30% of our population but 100% of our future!
