Our Story

The Oakhurst club, which for nearly two decades has been a safe, supervised after-school alternative for area youth, currently serves more than 400 area boys and girls each year.

The Oakhurst Boys and Girls Club was opened on January 19, 1998 by the Mountain Area Youth Organization in collaboration with the Fresno County Boys and Girls Club.

Open weekdays from 2-6 p.m. for youth ages 6 to 18 years old, during the school year the club sees an average of more than 80 members come to the facility every day after school to participate in arts, sports and educational programs.

Club members also receive daily, one-to-one help with their homework and support with SAT prep and college enrollment.
As much as 90 percent of our annual operating budget comes from donations from area service clubs and businesses as well as from private individuals.

We have amazing Youth Development Professionals who encourage our members to stay in school, exhibit positive behavior and believe in themselves so they reach their full potential.

Thank you to our donors, sponsors, staff and volunteers for their dedication to the children of Oakhurst and surrounding foothill areas.
