Since our inception we have strived to be a safe positive place for kids after school and during summer. As we established ourselves with our Clubhouse in St. Helena, a Teen Center in Calistoga, a new Clubhouse in Calistoga, a school site in Angwin and a Teen Center in St. Helena, we now have turned our focus towards excellence. The question the Board of Directors and our Administration team asks itself daily is what is the need and how can we do better.
In the past two years our "The BIG Night" dinner & auction has established itself as one of the go to auctions of Napa Valley. With that funding we have sent our kids to Space Camp, bought new robotics equipment and computers for all sites, bought two new 15 passenger vans, took out teens on college tours all over California, remodeled our STEM lab, and started our Teen Retreats in Oregon to name just a few accomplishments. In the coming months we will be meeting for a Board retreat to discuss what more we can do in our communities to help our kids reach their full potential. If you have any ideas, please do not hesitate to contact me. As we move into 2020 and beyond we will continue to strive to make the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Helena and Calistoga the place for kids to expand their minds, play with their friends, discover their passions, explore their unique gifts and become the best humans they can be.
