Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We believe in the whole child approach to youth development, so we aim to provide comprehensive programs that address the range of our youth's needs and interests. Participation in ABGC's programs and services improves the lives of our members, teaching them the skills they need to achieve academic and professional success and giving them the resources to become confident, healthy and engaged members of society.

We offer all youth, ages 6-18 with 279 days of programming each year, afterschool and during school holidays. Daily programming includes Education & Career Development; Teens & Leadership; Health & Life Skills; STEM & Technology; Fine & Performing Arts; and Sports, Fitness & Recreation. We provide dental, medical and emotional support through on-site vision and medical clinics and small group counseling sessions. We are continuously working to provide our youth with the programs that truly address their needs. In the last few years, we have added a coding program that helps our youth remain competitive in today's 21st Century world and a Seed-to-Table gardening and cooking program that responds to the epidemic of overweight and obesity in low-income communities.

Alameda Boys & Girls Club has been in existence since 1949. ABGC is fiscally sound and managed by staff and a volunteer Board of Directors with the experience needed to manage a large and thriving non-profit organization. Our Board of Directors is comprised of high level professionals, all of whom make personal contributions to the agency. We also have an Associate Board comprised of business leaders, community activists and educators. Our CEO has worked within the Boys & Girls Club movement for 30 years, and as a former Club kid himself, understands how it important it is to help others in the same way, especially youth in underserved communities.

This year, ABGC will have served over 4,000 youth and their families. As CEO for the Alameda Boys & Girls Club, Jeff Miller has provided leadership that has seen the organization's annual budget double in size, its foundation increase over 400%, operating reserves increasing over 500% and its Board of Directors more than doubling its size. Through staff development, the Alameda Boys & Girls Club is serving nearly twice the number of kids it did just 5 years ago. Jeff has developed a highly skilled and achievable Strategic Plan for 2019 in an effort to serve more youth, secure more resource and expand our reach.
