Message from CEO

It finally feels like summer! It’s been absolutely amazing seeing so many returning Club members this summer as well as many new Club members enjoying the Boys & Girls Club experience. It’s been a summer filled with non-stop activity, making new friends, bonding with adult mentors, and engaging in STEM, career exploration, sports and engaging physical activities. I’m sure quite a few parents have seen their kids fall immediately to sleep on the car ride home after a full day of Club.

One meaningful highlight for me is seeing our middle school and high school aged Club members in action taking on leadership roles. They’ve been touring local businesses, universities and exploring San Diego outdoors to truly experience an active and engaged summer. Our teens helped us put on our Career Expo and started their own summer business selling snacks to Club members through the Keystone Club. Teens have specific job titles and duties and are diligently working towards an end of summer field trip to an amusement park.

We are excited to partner with Vista Unified in the 2023-24 school year offering as part of a free comprehensive AM/PM program. We will also be offering free recreational sports activities during lunches at Rancho Minerva, Vista Magnet, Madison, Roosevelt and VIDA. Registration is under way through Vista Unified. We also intend to also meet the needs of any families that are on a wait list.

Our after school program with transportation to our Main Site for some elementary schools schools is underway. Spaces are limited. Financial assistance is available to those that qualify- please register here.

Great Futures start here!

Matt Koumaras, CEO Boys & Girls Club of Vista

Program Highlight

Taking initiative in the Boys and Girls Club of Vista’s community! Our teens opened their Snack Shack for the first time in alliance with Keystone Club, offering yummy snacks and juices to the kids. Keystoning is the Boys & Girls Club Movement’s most dynamic teen program. It affords teens an opportunity to gain valuable leadership and service experience. Teens conduct activities in four areas: academic success, career exploration, community service and teen outreach.
