Coachella Valley youth served annually

We are in this together

Campaign 1966...

We believe in the future of our youth and we believe you do too!

The “Indio Club” started doing life-changing work for boys in 1966 and saw the light in 1990 and extended those same services to girls. Today, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley, which consists of seven sites in four of the most underserved communities, provide services for over 6000 youth on an annual basis. We believe that over the last five decades, our services have had a positive difference in the lives of thousands of youth, and we believe that we must work diligently to ensure that we are around for five more decades. We believe that when people are given a chance to make a difference, they respond. We are asking you to respond to our call to action by make a recurring monthly 100% tax-deductible gift of $19.66 to help us help those who need it most.

The Story of Jose

Community Impact

The John Carroll and Jim O’Brien Clubhouse in Indio opened its doors to the community in 1966. Today, that one small clubhouse has grown into an organization comprised of a network of four full-service clubhouses, two boxing/athletic centers, and the Smilow Family Teen Center in Indio.

We strive to give our club members and our communities a better and brighter future. We meet kids and teens where they are and help them to take steps forward to reach their potential. By focusing on safety, academic support and character development.


Below are only a few of our shining stars. We cannot thank you enough!
