Mission Statement

Boys & Girls Clubs of Chaffee County inspires and enables all youth, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential as caring, responsible and productive citizens.

Organization History

The BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF CHAFFEE COUNTY (BGCCC) was founded in 2005 as a result of a community steering committee's recommendation to merge two existing youth programs in Salida, Colorado into one nationally-recognized program. As a result of increasing demand, as well as the immediate success of the program in Salida, a second unit was opened in Buena Vista in 2006. Both Clubs were started in response to a needs assessment that identified the lack of constructive, after-school activities for local youth. This need was especially critical for families from low-income backgrounds. Both Clubs provide evidence-based programming that promotes the growth of the individual child and is aimed at (6) positive youth development outcomes: positive self-identity, health & wellbeing, positive values, a commitment to learning, social competency, and community involvement.
