About Us

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada positively impacts youth from the moment they enter the door. Youth are provided a safe, structured, and positive environment where they can build relationships with caring adults, participate in fun and engaging programs, learn important skills, make new friends, and develop their talents.

Our doors are open to about 1,500 youth in the Carson City and Carson Valley area before and after school, during school breaks, and through summer vacation. We’ve designed our programs to help youth create aspirations for the future, become the best versions of themselves, and engage in positive behaviors.

Here to Lift Global Communities Up

We are part of a nationwide network located in every state, including Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and U.S. military installations overseas. The Boys & Girls Clubs of America delivers proven programs to millions of young people every day.

Making an Impact

Every day, we seek to inspire and help young people, especially those who need us the most, to realize their full potential. It’s our mission to support them in becoming productive, caring, and responsible citizens. And we’re proud of the impact we have on the lives of families right here in our communities.

In 2022 alone, we worked with 1,423 members, provided $256,458 in scholarships to 478 families, and served 45,040 meals to children.

Our History

We have been a cornerstone of the Carson City community since opening our doors in 1993. Previously located at the historic site on Stewart Street, we moved to our very own Clubhouse on Russell Way in August 2009. Our clubhouse provides over 20,500 square feet of safe and modern programming space for our members.

In December 2015, we added to our campus with the opening of the Carson City MAC (Multi-Purpose Athletic Center). This space, owned and operated by Carson City, provides our youth with an indoor space to practice, learn, and engage in sports and many different physical activities! Each year, we strive to improve on our programs to ensure we offer the best technology and activities.

In June 2016, we had another exciting addition when we added a 7,500 square foot Teen Center, which continues to have a great turnout and offers many opportunities to Carson City’s teens! Our Teen Center was made possible by a generous grant from the Pennington Foundation, matched by the generosity of our Club sponsors and donors.

Meet Our Team

Our staff and Board of Directors play a pivotal role in advancing our mission. Through every challenge and triumph, our team stands together, providing encouragement and mentorship. Through consistent training, our staff and Board members are strengthened to improve the quality of our Club experience.

Connecting to Community


  • “I went to the Club when I was younger, and I never thought I would be running a Boys & Girls Club site as an adult. Now, I get to come to work every day and spend time with the people that I call family. I wouldn't have it any other way.”
