We give children and youth a safe place to belong.
What does that mean, exactly?
We help young people grow healthy, happy and safely from birth to adulthood, and are a supportive resource for parents throughout their family’s growth in the community.
The Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs have 42 clubs and service locations throughout the Okanagan Valley, from Osoyoos to Enderby.
All children and youth discover and achieve their dreams and grow to be healthy, successful and active participants in society.
Okanagan Boys & Girls Clubs provides a safe, supportive place where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life.
