New Club in progress!
The big day is finally approaching! After many years of working toward a new Boys & Girls Club, it's almost complete. The doors to our new Club will officially open on March 28. The new Club will offer a full-day program for kids on spring break and then begin offering before and after school programs when kids are back in school. We couldn't be more excited to have our doors opening soon so we can give our community's kids all the very best programs. And they truly are the best programs - in 2015 our Club was ranked #1 in the nation by Boys & Girls Clubs of America for its education programs and #2 in the nation for safety. We're proud to give kids programming that is not only the best locally, but the best in the entire country. With the new Club, we'll be able to bring those top quality programs to another 2,500 youth in the next year.
The new site will make a big difference to parents, too. Jessica, one of the moms at our Huntington Beach Branch, says, "Thanks to the Club, I am also able to attend school to better my pay in the future. I just completed my Associate in Science and I am applying to pursue my BS. Knowing that my daughter is safe and loved means more to me than anything. Thank you for everything!”
This is a mom from one of our other Club sites that is not on a college campus. Imagine how many more parents like Jessica will be able to go back to school and get the education they need once the new Boys & Girls Club at Golden West College opens in March!
