“The Vacaville Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club is one of the most influential youth development organizations in our community and our vision is that all Club members graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and leading a healthy lifestyle. Since our opening in October 2003, we have served over four thousand youth. Community investments and strong leadership have been the driving catalysts of the Club although we have not been immune to hard economic times. We know that with continued community involvement and support as well as strong leadership we will be able to give Vacaville’s most disadvantaged youth the opportunity to be successful in life, regardless of their life situation.  Together, we can help a child increase in confidence, create possibilities, and inspire hope for a brighter future.” – Anna Eaton, Executive Director

Vacaville Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club  – http://www.vnbgc.com/
When the bell rings, schools are out but the Vacaville Neighborhood Boys and Girls Clubs (VNBGC) are in. Unfortunately, 1/3 of Vacaville’s kids have no place to go leaving them at risk of being unsupervised, unguided, and unsafe. The definition of “at risk” is no longer defined as just low income or underserved youths. We know all too well that children in middle and upper income families deal with just as many social and personal issues.

Ensuring a safe, productive place for kids to spend out-of-school time is vital. Their goal at The Vacaville Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club is to inspire youth to believe in themselves and to enhance their lives through the programs brought to them by their compassionate staff. VNBGC provide Vacaville’s youth with life-changing programs that develop a desire for learning and believe that every young person deserves a great future.

Interested in sponsoring the event, or email [email protected].
