Boys & Girls Club Of The Siskiyous FB

The Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous offers a safe place for young people to learn, play and grow outside of school hours. When school’s out, clubs are in. As soon as that last school bell rings, their doors open to serve the youth of Siskiyou County into the early evening.

During holiday breaks and the summer months, they are open during the day when many guardians are at work. These times are the most crucial, when children and teens would be home by themselves, or elsewhere, likely without qualified supervision.

 

It is the aim of Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous to be available when youth needs them the most; to be a place where kids can feel safe, connect with others, and build the skills and confidence needed to reach great futures. Learn more here.
