OPPORTUNITY CHANGES EVERYTHING
In 1959, a group of concerned citizens in Kelowna came together to see what they could do to develop a safe place for boys to go after school. The same thing happened in Vernon in the 60’s and Penticton in the 70’s, and the rest is history….
What they knew, or quickly discovered, was that the club was a way to help kids, kids who really needed us. By providing a safe place, a place of belonging and positive role models, boys and then girls were developing into responsible young men and women, thanks to their involvement at the club. What do we want for our kids? In the end, every parent hopes for the same thing; that their child grows up to be a healthy, happy, successful adult. Sometimes that road is full of challenges, some of which are difficult to imagine. We focus on our four core programming areas: physical activity, health and safety; leadership, growth and empowerment; learning and career development; and family and communities.
We invite you to learn more about us. Come visit one of our locations, drop us a line, and follow us on social media. We think you’ll be surprised about the extent of our programs and services, and the ways that we reach kids. We have 1,000 children, youth and their families walk through the doors of our 41 service locations every day.
We provide systemic opportunity to all children and youth. We help them become their best selves. We cheer them on as they take it from there, with confidence and conviction. All they need is opportunity because Opportunity Changes Everything.
