What we aim to solve

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley's programs are offered to youth, ages 7-18, who reside in the Eastern Coachella Valley. Eastern Riverside County encompasses the cities of Thermal, North Shore, Oasis, Mecca, Coachella, Indio, and La Quinta. A majority of the children who attend one of our four clubhouses are enrolled in school through the Coachella Valley Unified School District (CVUSD), which reports 94% of students are eligible to receive free-or-reduced lunches. The Median Household Income (MHI) averages anywhere from $23,895-$50,824, with a majority of the population (67.4%) living 100% below poverty. Education is not considered a priority to the parents who are struggling to put food on the table and a roof overhead, consistent with the 29% high school diploma or equivalency attainment rate in the eastern Riverside County region where agriculture and day-labor trades are a vast majority of employment opportunities.

We aim to save and enhance the lives of young people of our community, especially those with economic and/or social needs, by offering a safe haven and meaningful youth development services provided by a caring and qualified staff. Through the programs and services of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley, we will decrease the socio-economic academic gap that exists in the Coachella Valley, thereby increasing the number of minority youth who obtain their high school diploma and attend college or trade school.

Healthy Habits and Triple Play programs provide a holistic approach to teach the youth about healthy bodies, minds, and soul/spirit/emotions. Power Hour provides Club professionals with the strategies, activities, resources, and information to create an engaging homework help and tutoring program that encourages Club members of every age to become self-directed learners.

Our achievements are a result of the highly qualified and trained directors and staff members who continue to empower and guide the youth of the Coachella Valley. Many of our staff members have been with the organization for more than 20-years and have helped in successfully expanding the organization to four clubhouses, serving 6,043 youth throughout the Coachella Valley; ultimately touching the lives of tens-of-thousands of youth throughout the years. Our President and CEO, Dr. Quinton Egson, is recognized nationally as an author (Nearly 7,000 Words of Wisdom (advice and inspiration) For Teens (and adults too)) and founder of the United States Martial Arts System. Our staff and volunteers are equally qualified in their fields and have been recognized for their accomplishments and leadership in the community.

Club members, youth ages 7-18, will improve academically and behaviorally, which is measured and evaluated through school records and report cards. As a result of academic and behavioral improvement, 100-percent of the 8th-grade club members will advance to high school and at least 90% of the 12-grade club members will graduate high school. Additionally, club members participating in the Healthy Habits and Triple Play programs will increase their knowledge and participation in healthy activities, sports, healthy eating, and engaging in healthy behaviors that decrease childhood obesity and the rate of juvenile diabetes.

Since 1966, the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Coachella Valley has been committed to enriching the lives of young people by providing a safe haven in which they can learn and grow. Beginning with one Boys Club in Indio, CA, to now offering the Boys and Girls Clubs of America programs at four locations: Indio, La Quinta, Coachella, and Mecca. Our four clubhouses serve 6,043 children annually through our 365 volunteers and 72 employees. All of our programs and services align with our mission to “save and enhance the lives of the young people of our community, especially those with economic and/or social needs by offering a safe haven and meaningful youth development services provided by a caring and qualified staff”. As such, our club members boast a 95% high school achievement rate and our organization provides 35+ youth with scholarships to college each year.
