Mission, Vision & Commitment
We are committed to serving the youth in and around the City of Palm Springs. We strive to instill strong character, leadership skills, academic success and healthy living habits amongst our members and see them through to high school graduation. In doing so, we are committed to growing and retaining a solid membership foundation that will focus on pillars of community service, education, arts, and health and wellness.
Our members are our number one priority. BGCPS is designed to build confidence, offer facilities and equipment for education and learning, act as a safe haven that deters members from dangerous situations, and employ professional and caring staff members to teach and promote these values on a daily basis.
Established in 1948, the BGCPS is currently the largest after-school program provider in the City of Palm Springs, serving over 1200 young people per year. We are the youth club in Palm Springs, and the community recognizes us as being an authority in youth development. We are constantly adding new programs, updating facilities, and engaging industry experts to support the needs of our members. The Club strives to represent the Board of Directors, donors, stakeholders and the Community, in delivering young leaders that display the core values of our organization.
