Who We Are

The Boys & Girls Club of San Fernando Valley is a youth and family-oriented nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the educational, vocational, social, and character developments of boys & girls between the ages of 6 and 17.

Striving to help members and families enhance their lives, the Club offers programs that build self-esteem, social competencies, and positive values.   Not only do members meet new friends, but they learn and develop new skills that benefit them a lifetime.

The Boys & Girls Club has a core of career professionals who are culturally sensitive and trained to provide leadership through informal and formal guidance, using individual and small group experiences.

The Club’s programs operate *Monday—Friday, with occasional special activities planned for weekends and holidays. Regular after-school Club hours in the spring and fall are *Monday—Thursday, 3:00—7:45 pm and Friday, 2:00—6:45 pm.  We offer programs during Spring Break, Winter Break, and summer. A Summer Camp Program is available at an additional cost per child. Call our office for more information.

*Program hours are subject to change or closure.
