Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

We at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley condemn any act of racism or discrimination. We advocate for youth to have equitable opportunities and encourage young people to harness the power of their voice. We believe it is critical to speak up and take action because silence is complacency. As a nation, we can and must demand change to support anyone who faces systemic oppression. Together, we must take action to ensure the future is great for the millions of kids that are counting on us.
