The Boys & Girls Club of the Umpqua Valley is a non-profit organization serving more than 3000 local youth grades 1-12 annually. Since 2001, our programs have delivered outcome-driven experiences that enrich kids’ lives by impacting academic success, good character and citizenship and healthy lifestyles.
Our educational programs assist youth in becoming more successful in school by offering homework assistance, educational support programming and developing a love for lifetime learning.
Our health & life skills programs develop young people’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and live successfully as self-sufficient adults.
Good Character & Citizenship
Programs in this area empower youth to become responsible, caring citizens, sustain meaningful relationships with others, develop a positive self-image, develop leadership skills, participate in the democratic process and respect their own and others; cultural identities.
The Club offers summer programming giving families 10 hours of program options each day. Summer programs are designed to keep kids learning, active and engaged throughout the summer break.
Roseburg Sports Program
Formerly the Roseburg Elementary Sports Program, the Roseburg Sports Program has been managed by the Boys & Girls Club since 2000. The Roseburg Sports Program organizes league play in tackle football, volleyball and girls & boys basketball for students in the Roseburg elementary and middle schools and Douglas County Youth Leagues. The sports program strives to offer a sports experience that is safe and fun for ALL children with an emphasis on skill-building, teamwork and participation.
For our members ages 13 years and older, the Club has a dedicated Teen Center and Teen Programs Coordinator. Our goal is to provide a safe, positive environment for teens who are often faced with making the choice between hanging out with friends on the streets or hanging out with friends at the Club. In addition, we provide teen nights and dances, which encourages camaraderie, acceptance, safety and includes supportive staff.
