About

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula (BGCP) is a vibrant, entrepreneurial nonprofit in the heart of Silicon Valley that is committed to making our community a great place for all of our children to grow up. BGCP's vision is for all youth of the Bay Area Peninsula to graduate from high school with a plan for additional post-secondary education or training. Over the past five years, in neighborhoods where less than half the youth graduate from high school, 80% of BGCP’s school site members have graduated from high school with a plan. We are doubling high school graduation rates by implementing proven practices in strategic partnership with schools, families, government, corporations, nonprofits and volunteers. While most youth development organizations focus on motivated youth and are selective about whom they serve, BGCP serves all youth. Principals specifically refer their most at-risk students to our programs, and we welcome all youth who reach out to us. We seek to motivate all students to succeed academically.

At BGCP, we invest in our staff, because we know they are what make our organization great. Staff at all levels of the organization are dedicated to our top priority, which is for all youth of our community to become self-sufficient adults. Our mission is to help our members develop the academic and life skills they need to complete high school and their first year of post-secondary education or training. We serve youth in grades K–12 at 11 locations: three clubhouses and eight school sites in East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Redwood City, where over half the youth drop out of high school. While most youth development organizations select the young people whom they serve, BGCP serves all youth. We are seeking employees who are excited about signing on to support the core beliefs of BGCP.
