Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove condemns racism and discrimination in all forms. We honor and echo the messages and demands for systemic change for all people of color in our community, our country, and beyond. We will continue to support our members, families, and community by building safe, positive, and inclusive environments. But we can do more, and we will. We are committed to finding solutions together and taking bold action to ensure the great futures our members deserve. This collective effort amplifies the voices of our staff, volunteers, members, and the community to create positive change and overcome anything that stands in the way of realizing our mission. We look forward to sharing this journey with you and we thank you for your support in our ongoing effort to foster Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in our community.

Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
