Who we are

Boys & Girls Club of Greater Stockton is the successor to Stockton Boys & Girls Club which was originally founded in 1964. Judge John B. Cechini, Oft Lofthus, Cleveland Edwards, Jack Scrafield and Frank Thomason are just a few of the many Stockton leaders who laid the foundation for the Stockton Boys & Girls Club. These people saw the critical need to serve youth and families in Stockton’s most disadvantaged neighborhoods.

The Club started out in the former Juvenile Hall on Wilson Way. Through the efforts of many Stockton individuals and organizations, the Club was able to build a facility at 303 Olympic Circle, which operated from the early ‘70s until 2014, when the original Stockton Club lost its national charter.

In 2015, local community leaders and alumni began exploring the viability of
re-establishing a Boys & Girls Club in Stockton. Boys & Girls Clubs in Lodi and
Modesto, in conjunction with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, are working in
concert with local leaders to restore services to Stockton.

Our Mission
Boys & Girls Club of Greater Stockton inspires and empowers all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring individuals.
