Program Description

True to its mission since 1937, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Los Angeles Harbor helps young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. We achieve this through a commitment to quality programs and services in an environment that is safe, nurturing and inspiring.

Presently the Club serves 2,300 children per day at 13 sites making us the largest private daily service provider to at-risk youth in the entire L.A. Harbor/South Bay area.

The Los Angeles Harbor Clubs offer programs that address not only members' needs but also their interests. Our Triple A Strategy provides high-quality programming and activities in Academics, Arts and Athletics. Our core program areas, combined with our leadership development programming and daily recreation, offer well-rounded and comprehensive after-school activity choices.
