Our Story

Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

The Boys and Girls Club of the Hi-Desert is a safe place for the youth in our community to be mentored, experience support and opportunity, and receive the tools to make our community a better place. A monthly donation to BGCHD is an investment into our future and a seed of hope planted in a child's life. We have existed for 40+ years, have seen thousands of members come through our doors, directly changed thousands of lives, and indirectly have made a positive influence in millions. We believe our role in the community is instrumental and are as committed as ever to see our place within it to expand! Our aim is to meet the needs of the community and that is exactly what we have done. For the 2020/21 school year, we transitioned the function of our club to be a distance learning center that would provide the space, equipment, and mentoring to make this school year a possibility for so many students in out community.

The Mission in Action

BGCHD had the opportunity to serve a young man who is memorialized in our club who died a hero. Shane Castro was part of our teen program while he was in High School. In his

early 20's Shane stepped into an altercation where his friend was being attacked. In defense of his friend, Shane was fatally wounded. BGCHD is honored to have Shane's name and memory forever within the club. Shane was loved in the community, and a true hero. Making a difference in members life, like Shane, is the reason we exist.

"I was a member of the club from 2008-2019. The Club had a huge impact on my life. So much so, that I continued to share my love and passion for the club throughout the community. From the time I started at the club, I have reached nearly 3000 volunteer hours to the club alone. I was also the 2019 Youth of the Year. I think the most significant aspect of the club was the teen center. Every kid in the teen center was like family to me. Today, I advocate for the teen center as a member of the board. I recommend the club to every kids and parent. I will forever take what I learned from the club with me throughout life."

- Holly Gessler, 2019 Youth of the Year

  • BGCHD has had a lasting impact in our community for the last 40+ years and we have no intention of stopping.
  • We believe in changing our community from within and we are poised to make the greatest difference by being the boots on the ground.
  • Our core promise is to provide a safe, positive place and have a significant impact on their lives.
