Virtually BGCMC
An Online Club Experience

To meet the needs of kids and teens, Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County have transitioned to an Online Club Experience where you can access on-demand activities, recorded sessions, and live programming with Clubhouse Staff.
Aimed at keeping youth engaged, supported, and having fun, Virtually BGCMC recognizes Members through shout outs, Club Dollars, and more just like they would if they were in the Club! On-demand sessions are available for anyone to participate in. To participate in live programming, you must be a Clubhouse Member or a Virtual Member.
To become a Virtual Member, please complete a virtual registration form here & En Espanol. Registration is free. Once you register, you will begin receiving daily emails with Zoom room login information to access programming.
Please note, for safety and quality all sessions have 2 staff members instructing and monitoring programming. Members will not be able to access the session after 15 minutes of the session start time.
