WHAT WE DO
All across the United States and on U.S. military bases worldwide, more than 4,000 Boys & Girls Clubs are changing the lives of our youth and positively affecting their future. Although all Boys & Girls Clubs are affiliated with the National organization, each uniquely adapts to the population, cultures, and demographics it serves.
At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley, we offer seven facility-based youth centers that serve more than 11,000 youth each year, from infants through teens. Key sites and services include:
- Two licensed preschools serving children ages six weeks old to six years old.
- Four recreation centers for school age youth that provide before and after school programs and full day programs during summer and school holidays.
- A performing arts and fitness center offering more than 100 classes per week.
- Year-round basketball and soccer leagues.
- Family support programs that help whole families succeed.
Each day of the school year, our fleet of 18 yellow school buses transport children from 42 local schools in five local school districts to and from our programs to help make our programs accessible to the families who need them most. While the majority of youth served come from Huntington Beach and Fountain Valley, youth from more than 60 cities throughout the Orange County area are served by the Club each year.
