Our membership fees are an affordable $50 per year, but the actual cost per child is more than 10 times that at $577.  We rely on the generosity of the community to “bridge the gap” so that our Club members have access to all of the engaging and enriching activities we provide in Vista. Every dollar makes a difference in our year-round programs.

We are always looking for passionate people to make a difference in the lives of our Club kids. It can be as little as a one time class or an hour a day every month. We’re looking for help Monday-Friday until 6:30pm throughout the year. There are also opportunities during school breaks from 7am-6:30pm.  We are in need of tutors for grades K-8, artists, musicians, coaches, photography/videography, web design help, fundraising and clerical help. Be that special person and help inspire great futures.
