Send a message to our local youth that you believe in their great futures by giving your gift today.
Youth and teens are facing numerous challenges today. From cyber-bullying, drugs and vaping, to the pressures of getting into and affording a college education, kids today can feel overwhelmed instead of inspired about their futures. Teen mental health issues are on the rise, as are depression and suicide. One in six youth fail to graduate on time. And half of youth today don’t believe in the American dream. Your support today can help plant the seeds our youth need to build a greater future.
Donations Are Doubled!
Your support today will help us serve EVERY youth in our community, as we never turn away a child from our programs because of their family’s financial situation. Last year we awarded over $620,000 in financial assistance so local youth could participate in our programs. And thanks to a challenge from the Sahm Family Foundation, we can grow even more leaders! All donations received by December 31, 2019 will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $30,000!
Your gift will ensure that every kid that walks through our doors after school knows that the local community supports them every day. With every test, every lap, every college application, they will know you are there to help them grow, blossom and succeed. Be the support they need. Grow the next generation of local leaders. Donate today.
Daisy’s Success Story
Daisy blossomed at Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito. In her nine years here, she worked with other youth at the Club to build a garden, encouraged leadership to establish a Teen Center, and served as a tutor for younger Club kids.
She was our 2013 Youth of the Year, a Gates Millennium Scholarship Award winner, and a proud 2018 graduate of the University of San Diego. We consider Daisy exceptional, but she is quick to point out that our support helped her grown into the young leader she is today. As she put it,
