We all know that Mason Valley is a great place to live and work, but we also know that we have some real challenges. For instance, did you know that in our community: Every day BGCMV provides services such as: adult supervision by trained youth professionals; nutritious meals; tutoring; physical education; college readiness and leadership development to over 1,600 youths in our area. Without a safe place like BGCMV, youths risk being unsupervised, unguided and unsafe.

Non-profit organizations such as BGCMV can only achieve their goals with the assistance of generous donations from members of our community. Without these donations, serving kids-in-need in our area would not be possible.
