Agents for Positive Change

With safe places to learn and play, positive role models, and educational programming, Boys & Girls Clubs of the West Valley has helped local kids and teens thrive for 25 years and counting.

HELP SPREAD THE WORD

Unique Programming Inspires 2,700 youth annually

Boys & Girls Clubs of the West Valley has helped local kids and teens since 1992 when a small group of committed community leaders came together to help those kids that needed us most.

Every day, an average of 550 San Fernando Valley youth stream through our doors and participate in academic, fun and recreational programming. We provide safety and support during critical hours of the day as well as meals, strong role models, sports and access to the arts. At the Clubs, there’s a way for every kid to get involved and learn something new.

Our vision is to build the community’s social and economic fabric by ensuring the academic and career success of every member that walks through our doors. We achieve this by providing more impactful programs that appeal to our members, strengthen their academic performance, build character, encourage healthy lifestyles and meet the basic needs of our young people.

None of our work would be possible without the commitment of 50 full- and part-time employees and more than 200 volunteers, as well as a dedicated Leadership Team and Board of Directors. Together, the group is guided by the passion: To inspire and enable the youth who need us most.
