Youth Voice Matters. It is crucial for the health of our young people, their families and our community to provide a place where our teens have the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with caring adults. At the San Leandro Boys & Girls Club our mission is to provide a safe space with caring adults where our teens can be challenged, empowered and supported to become the leaders of their tomorrow.
