Serving nearly 1,500 members annually, the Boys & Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe (BGCNLT) provides a safe, structured, and positive environment for young people before and after school, during holidays, and summer vacation across 4 Sites: Kings Beach Clubhouse, Duffield Youth Program in Incline Village, Truckee Elementary School Site, and Alder Creek Middle School Site. Across all Sites, Club Members have the opportunity to participate in various programs that fall into one of five thematic categories: Education & Career Development; Health & Life Skills; Sports, Fitness, & Recreation; The Arts; and Character & Leadership Development.
Our programs allow students to follow their interests, discover new ones, and take advantage of programs across disciplines. Club Members have the freedom to explore academic subjects they have never before considered, pursue community service and volunteer opportunities, and develop mentorships with caring staff. A key part of the BGCNLT experience is the opportunity for our members to step out on their own, in a caring and protective environment, to find their own interests, to define their personal identities, and to form friendships and mentorships that will sustain them for many years, if not a lifetime.
Through your support, we will urge Club Members to see their time at BGCNLT not as merely transactions, not as simply a place to go after school, but as transformational, as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore new interests and embrace the unfamiliar – to cultivate the creativity and values that will shape their lives. We look forward to the new insights, collaborations, learning, and understanding that will emerge out of this academic year as a result of your generous support of our programs.
