With more working parents and single parent families across the United States over 15 million children are alone and unsupervised after school and throughout the summer. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley offers youth development programs to over 2,400 members, ages 3 – 14 at our six Clubs before and after school, during weekend enrichment classes and youth sports leagues, plus at our summer camps.Our Clubs are located on middle school campuses on a long-term lease and joint use agreement with school districts.There are plans to open additional facilities on middle school campuses throughout the Calabasas, Agoura Hills, Oak Park, Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks areas in the next few years.
The Club offers young people what they need and want most: adults who respect and listen to them; a safe environment where they can have fun and be themselves; and interesting, constructive activities that channel their energy into challenging pursuits. To ensure that youth leave the Clubs as well-rounded individuals with a plan for the future, Clubs are focusing efforts on three key outcome areas: Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles. All Boys & Girls Club programs are based on a youth development strategy that builds self-confidence and self-esteem, and fosters a sense a belonging, competence, usefulness and influence.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley relies upon the philanthropic support of individuals, corporations and foundations in order to sustain and grow its services, plus provide the needed financial support to all members, including those with economic hardship, assuring no child is ever turned away. Dollars generated for the Clubs help build a stronger future for the youth of today and the leaders of tomorrow.
