News & Updates

Hear about the great things happening at the Boys & Girls Club of Vista!

Outstanding Outcomes

We conduct annual evaluation through the National Youth Outcomes Assessment to analyze and benchmark our programs’ successes and challenges. The National Youth Outcomes Initiative (NYOI) uses common, credible indicators such as school attendance, reading and math proficiency, on-time grade progression, and avoidance of risky behaviors. We are very pleased to report some of the outstanding progress we’re making including:

  1. 97% of Club members expect to graduate high school
  2. 87% of Club members report they get mostly A’s or B’s in school
  3. 69% of Club members are physically active more than 5 days a week
  4. 63% of Club teens volunteer at least monthly

We help prepare Club kids for high school graduation, college and careers by building the skills needed to succeed in today’s globally competitive workforce.  We are committed to helping kids build healthy habits for life and making sure they’re active, engaged and able to make healthy decisions. We teach kids how to be responsible citizens and resilient leaders through mentorship, accountability and modeling good behavior.  Great Futures truly do start at the Boys & Girls Club of Vista.

Give the Gift of Summer Camp

Summer is a special time of unique childhood experiences- family vacations, day trips, camping, amusement parks, going to the beach, movies, baseball games & more.
Now that school is out, Vista kids have a lot of time to enjoy these incredible experiences.
Unfortunately for many kids in Vista, they just can’t afford to participate in these memorable day camp experiences. In fact, 83% of Vista kids live in either low, very low or extremely low household incomes. We have many great kids that would like to attend our summer camps but simply can’t due to limited resources.
You can make an immediate difference right now for a child this summer.
