The Solution

Empowerment

By providing access to mentors and confidence-building activities, we unlock the potential in young girls and contribute to a more equitable and inclusive society.

Role Modeling

Positive role models help children learn through observation and imitation. Even as young women dream of their future, visualizing the pathway to it is difficult without someone to emulate. When they see and meet women who have achieved success in their lives, it can open up their minds to new possibilities.

Community Engagement

Community support is vital in the effort to uplift young women and girls. Investing in women, especially when they are young, creates a ripple effect, improving not only their lives but also that of their families and communities.

Child Safety Is Job No. 1

Ensuring child safety is fundamental to the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Silicon Valley.

Case for Support

Youth today face more complex problems than ever.
Together, we can inspire kids to dream big.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

All kids deserve the right to be themselves, feel a sense of belonging, and have access to opportunities that support their great futures.
