The Boys & Girls Club is more than a place, it is a "movement" to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
By reaching children at an early age and providing positive activities and encouragement, our Club provides a compelling alternative to youth crime, gang membership, drugs, and other negative influences that effect our youth today.
Our Club programs promote the development of young people by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, influence and belonging. When this strategy is fully implemented, self-esteem is enhanced and an enviornment is created which helps our members acheive their full potential. Additionally, our members learn to:
· Enjoy their interests
· Nurture their talents
· Dissolve their prejudices
· Express their personality
· Develop friendships
· Build self esteem
· Contribute to society
· Achieve personal success
Recognizing the need for positive after school and summer activities for kids, a group of concerned Fullerton citizens started the Boys & Girls Club in 1952. The Club has grown steadily over the years.
Today, we serve over 2,500 youth at 4 facilities. Our goal is to provide quality educational and recreational programs to Fullerton's youth in a positive and safe environment. Many of our kids come from disadvantaged circumstances, and we are dedicated to making a difference in their lives.
