Who We Are.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Fe/Del Norte was established in 1938. Since then we have worked to save and change the lives of children and teens, especially those who need us most, by providing them with a safe, positive and engaging environment and programs that prepare and inspire them to achieve Great Futures.
Engaging on their levels.
Educating the Future.
What We Do.
In 2011-12 we merged with the Del Norte Boys and Girls Clubs allowing us to serve Northern New Mexico. Despite our long history, each day we continue to find new ways to learn, grow, and innovate. Our work is driven by solid core values: youth first, commitment to quality, integrity, outcome-driven, professionalism, teamwork, and collaboration.
Through 6 Clubs in 2 counties, our trained and professional staff serve nearly 3,000 kids and teens daily. Our programs focus on helping kids and teens get ready for college and careers, live healthily, and lead in their communities.
