Our Program Philosophy

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica’s programs are proven to keep children on the right track in life, and the programs are fun!
BGCSM serves its members with programs – offered in a supportive, non-competitive environment. We provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who walks through our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.

Youth Development Strategy

The Boys & Girls Club Youth Development Strategy is designed to build self-esteem and allow our youth to live full, satisfying, and productive lives. It is important that all programs and activities promote these efforts to their fullest potential.

  • A sense of competence – young people feel proud and confident when they acquire new skills. They get a sense of pride when they accomplish a job well done.
  • A sense of usefulness – young people get a feeling of satisfaction when doing something of value for others.
  • A sense of belonging – young people know when they are accepted because they feel welcomed.
  • A sense of power and influence – young people feel valued when their opinions are heard.
