“We have a vision where everyone takes responsibility for the children and youth in Victoria. After all, they are the future of our community. We all want to see Victoria thrive and we will be reliant on these future leaders for that. It is only fair we give them the best start possible.” David Curtis, CEO, Viking Air and past president of the Board.
By supporting Boys & Girls Clubs, you will make an impact on the lives of thousands of young people and our community. With your help, we provide the safe, supportive environment children and youth need to reach their full potential, whatever issues they are dealing with. Your support allows us to sustain and expand our programs, run events, attract top quality staff and realize our vision to strengthen community by empowering children, youth and families. We are a local organization, so you can be certain that your donation is an investment in Victoria. Without your help, we couldn’t do what we do every day for the children and youth in this community.
We keep our programs and services affordable, and in many cases, offered free of charge to families of limited means. We regularly provide subsidies or waive fees for programs to ensure that no child misses out due to financial reasons. This means donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations are essential in providing the programs and services children and youth in Greater Victoria both need and deserve.
These are some of the areas currently in need of support:
- Community Clubs
- Parenting Programs
- Youth Leadership
- Rite of Me
- Summer Camp
- Metchosin Camp (Outdoor Recreation and Education programs, Camp facilities development, Environmental Projects)
