The Boys & Girls Club of Sierra Vista conducts over 20 nationally recognized programs annually. All programs are chosen from 5 core areas of youth development:
Character & Leadership Development; Education & Career Development; Health & Life Skills; The Arts; Sports, Fitness, and Recreation.


The Club is unique from other youth serving organizations in town. The Club is facility based with a building located in a neighborhood used solely as a Boys & Girls Club. The Club employs trained adult professional staff that are dedicated to the mission. All employees are subject to ongoing background checking and training to ensure the highest quality of performance. The Club is open everyday of the week - when kids need a place to go the most. The Club is affordable. No child is turned away because of inability to pay registration or program fees. Dues are kept low to ensure all families can afford to join.
