The mission of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Foothills is to provide a positive place for youth of all backgrounds to develop character, leadership and achieve their full potential as individuals.
The Vision of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Foothills is:
To be recognized as a leading authority on youth development by supplementing the work of families, schools and community by providing our Club members with positive and lasting skills, knowledge and attitudes needed for effective personal and interpersonal growth and development.
To establish partnerships and relationships that complement or sponsor the quality programs and services that we provide for our youth. By effective marketing and publicity that gain recognition, the end result of our work will be effective goal oriented young adults who will become responsible members of society.
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them. Since 1992 the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Foothills have been the center of youth development in Monrovia. We are proud to serve all children ages 6-18.
The Clubs provide programs such as tutoring, homework assistance, personal and cultural enrichment, organized team sports and after school bus pickup. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.
We are grateful to the citizens of Monrovia and to the surrounding foothill communities who have made this service to our children possible. Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow -- all while having fun. It is truly The Positive Place For Kids.
"How fortunate our students and families are to have the Boys and Girls Clubs' after-school and summer programs to offer productive, positive activities. The experiences provided by the Boys and Girls Clubs help insure that our children will be happy, active, healthy and ready to learn when they arrive at school."
