    Youth of the Year Celebration 2020

    In a virtual ceremony held for the nominees on Tuesday, November 17th, Bulldogs Basketball member Quinn O’Donnell was awarded Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito’s 2020 Overall Youth of the Year. Quinn was chosen from a field of seven nominees from three of our Clubhouses and four of our specialty programs.

    Her poise, style of communication, and leadership both on and off our courts make her an ideal representative of our organization in the Countywide competition. O’Donnell is a sophomore at San Dieguito Academy, has a 4.0 GPA and is taking several honors classes. She also plays guitar and piano and sings.

    Make a Difference


    Our 7 Clubhouses and 7 specialty programs throughout Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Encinitas, & Solana Beach serve nearly 6,800 youth members and impact over 16,700 San Diego youth. On average, we award over $500,000 in financial assistance each year 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), so all local youth could take part in our programs.

    Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Clubhouses were closed for three months, as we shifted to virtual programming for our youth members in April 2020. We reopened five of our seven Clubhouses (at limited capacity) for Summer Day Camps. We’ve also been able to re-open our Aquatics Center, Bulldogs Basketball programs, and Carmel Valley Montessori School, as well as continue online music lessons through our Youth Arts Academy. While local support has helped us reopen, we estimate we will only be able to serve one-third of the youth we normally do this summer, at three times the cost. Your support will ensure that working families have a safe and trusted place for their children to get the educational and emotional support they need during these challenging times.
