Gender expression is a human right.
BGCSVI stands with all trans, Two-Spirit and non-binary children and youth.
Gender expression is a human right. We believe in identity-affirming environments where everyone experiences a sense of belonging.
BGC Clubs are safe spaces where all children and youth are welcome.
Sarah Beckett Memorial Run 2023
In memory of Sarah Beckett, who was killed in the line of duty on April 5, 2016, this 5 kilometre family-friendly walk and run raised money for our youth outreach program to continue its life-changing work.
It’s official. Boys & Girls Club of Greater Victoria has become BGC South Vancouver Island. Not to be trendy. Not because it’s catchier. But because we believe our name should reflect who, what and where we do our work! Clubs across our country open their doors to all children, youth and families and we believe our name should reflect that. We are located in communities that feel more connected to South Vancouver Island than Greater Victoria, so we wanted our name to be aligned with the communities we serve.
Removing gender from our name modernizes the BGC brand and echoes the inclusive practices we’re known for, without straying too far from our history and brand awareness. It also embraces the fact that we serve young people of all ages, backgrounds, and identities.
New brand, same legacy: 61 years of creating opportunities for thousands of kids, teens, young adults and parents across South Vancouver Island.
LIFE-CHANGING PROGRAMS & RELATIONSHIPS
Belonging to a BGC Club is often a life-changing experience. Children can build healthy, supportive relationships with caring adult role models, which in turn can positively influence the life path they choose. Clubs also encourage healthy, respectful relationships with peers and family members.
