History of the Club

Our Mission

History of the club

The Boys & Girls Club of Sierra Vista was started in 1995 by a group of residents came together under the direction of the Grandma-Grandpa Corp. with the dream of providing a safe, fun place for the youth of Sierra Vista and its surrounding communities. Shortly thereafter, the Club was incorporated and officially became a Boys & Girls Club under the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Thanks to the support of many local businesses, community leaders and local residents our first Clubhouse, which was located on 1st Street, opened in 1996 under the directorship of Steve King. By 2008, we had outgrown our original Clubhouse and, in 2008, The Boys & Girls Club of Sierra Vista relocated to a new home on Paseo San Luis, which we purchased in 2009.

The Boys & Girls Club of Sierra Vista is now am organization recognized on a national level with a 12,300 square foot facility with a gym, technology lab, multi-purpose room, art room, game room, activity room, teen room, kitchen, outdoor area, and executive offices. Our beloved Clubhouse now allows us to accommodate and serve over 700 youth each year.
