Congratulations to Kyra Dominguez, who was crowned our 2022 overall Youth of the Year. Our 2022 Youth of the Year (YOY) Celebration and fundraiser on Saturday, August 6th at the Del Mar Racetrack was huge a success!

Over 200 people got Mad as a Hatter, raising just over $150,000 while basking in the sun, watching the races up close and enjoying entertainment from aerialists, jugglers, hula hoopers and a DJ.

The event culminated in the crowning of our 2022 Overall Youth of the Year while shining a light on what we are all about: the positive development of youth.

You are cordially invited to join our delightful celebration.

Youth of the Year Celebration 2021

In a celebration held for the nominees on Saturday, November 20th, Rancho San Dieguito swim team member Miko Baron was awarded Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito’s 2021 Overall Youth of the Year. The sophomore was chosen from a field of four nominees from one of our Clubhouses and three of our specialty programs.

Make a Difference

Founded in 1966, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito is the longest-serving youth nonprofit in the San Dieguito community, with no child turned away due to their family’s financial situation. Our programs focus on three main outcomes: Good Character & Citizenship, Academic Success, and Healthy Lifestyles. We level the playing field through activities in our core program areas: the Arts; Character & Leadership Development; Education & Career Development; Health & Life Skills; Sports, Fitness & Recreation; and Technology.

Our 7 Clubhouses and 7 specialty programs throughout Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Encinitas, & Solana Beach serve over 3,500 youth members and impact over 7,000 San Diego youth. Last Year, we awarded over $444,000 in financial assistance through our after-school & specialty programs, (Aquatics/Rancho San Dieguito Swim Team, Athletics/BIG 8 Middle School Sports, Bulldogs Basketball, Carmel Valley Montessori School, Center for a Healthy Lifestyle, Summer Adventure Camps and Youth Arts Academy), to ensure all local youth can have the foundation for a GREAT FUTURE.
