ABOUT THE BOYS & GIRLS CLUB

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Redwoods is a youth development program for children ages 6 to 18. All of our sites offer a safe place for our members to learn, play and develop citizenship and leadership skills. We have over 1500 members and we typically serve over 155 members daily.

Our after school programs are a big asset to working parents. They offer kids a safe place to go after school, help with homework, a warm meal and fun activities to participate in. With the help of our sponsors, the cost to our members is only $30 for the school year. We also offer summer, T-Ball, Teen Court and Substance Abuse Intervention programs.

WHY THE CLUB IS IMPORTANT

Humboldt County is a great place to live and raise a family, but today more than ever our community needs your help. Crime, homelessness and drug abuse are rampant. The key to changing this and to ensure a healthy future is healthy children.

Humboldt County has had some of the highest numbers for childhood abuse, neglect and trauma in California. Its our mission to reach out to these children with programs and services that promote and enhance their development by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, and belonging.
