After School Program

Since 1995, when the Boys & Girls Club first opened, it has touched the lives of over 12,000 children and their families living in the East Valley. The Boys & Girls Club is meeting this need by making a difference in the lives of the youth we serve. We are into our thirteenth year in the community; providing affordable after school and summer program for boys and girls ages 5- 18. The Club helps strengthen each child's self-esteem and individuality with homework assistance, computer literacy, tutoring, creative arts, recreation, and health & physical education programs conducted by trained staff. Today, the Boys & Girls Club is committed to providing affordable after school, summer, extended day care programs and services covering a wide range of programs including computer education & remedial tutoring, health and physical education & athletics, fine arts, leadership development, and social recreation. Our young people continue to receive critical guidance from committed professional staff and dedicated volunteers through a wide range of educational and recreational programs. Our parents benefit from the Club's low cost child care programs made affordable to everyone during after school hours and the throughout the busy summer vacation months. The Boys & Girls Club operates a main branch and After School Enrichment Programs at ten local elementary and middle school campuses in Burbank that serve 3,600 youth a day. This unique program was designed to provide much needed after school homework, tutoring and enrichment programs to assist our working parents. When the school day comes to a close, the Boys & Girls Club opens its doors to a positive place. We also offer a Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) program. The Boys and Girls Club offers a Deaf and Hard of Hearing after school enrichment program where these challenged youth are provided with experiential learning opportunities with the assistance of BGC staff trained in American Sign Language and Burbank Unified School District teachers trained in sign language and currently teaching deaf and hard of hearing students. This exciting program fulfills the educational needs of these students and mainstreams them with hearing kids throughout the Club and into the community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

It is our goal to provide free services to disadvantaged and underserved youth in the following core programs: after-school tutoring/homework assistance, Club Tech/STEM, creative arts, health and physical education, team athletics, leadership development, career/college planning, and life skills. The Club also runs a free, drop in teen program and a deaf and hard of hearing program.

Our Club facility, staff and program offerings create a welcoming, positive environment that allows members to engage in play, enjoy their recreational time, and be eager to come to the Club. Club staff and programs consistently communicate the expectation that every child and teen has the potential to excel, be great, be productive and succeed at the Club and in life. The Club encourages, fosters and nourishes the dreams and aspirations of every member and provides opportunities for youth to realize these expectations. The Club takes every opportunity to recognize and validate the achievements and accomplishments of members, no matter how large or small.

The Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and Greater East Valley fully implements the Boys & Girls Club of America's Formula for Impact. This is the theory of change that describes how individual Clubs can increase our impact. It creates a commonly understood vision of the goals, how they will be reached, and what will be used to measure progress along the way. Two key parts of this formula include the Five Key Elements for Positive Youth Development and Three Priority Outcomes. The Five Key Elements include a (1) safe, positive environment, (2) fun, (3) supportive relationships, (4) opportunities and expectations and (5) recognition and the Priority Outcomes include Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship and Healthy Lifestyles.

Our talented, professional staff sets an example for young people and points them toward the path to academic and professional success, keeping young people on track with a positive plan for their future. All children and teens are encouraged to follow their interests and reach their potential as productive, responsible citizens.

We're also proud to be associated with a diverse group of community leaders who volunteer their time and expertise to help the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and the Greater East Valley grow and thrive.

The Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and Greater East Valley (GEV) started as a place for the neighborhood kids to hang out and play. Long before there were official school sites or a tech lab or even a club van, it was just a bunch of young people wanting a place to call their own.

So in 1995, an old firehouse on Buena Vista Street was converted into a Boys & Girls Club. Members of the community donated their time and talent, walls got painted, shelves got mounted, staff were hired and the Main Club site was born and became
home to about 75 kids.

Seven years later, in 2002 the principal at Roosevelt Elementary School approached us with the idea to pilot an after school program on the Roosevelt site. The Roosevelt Elementary program was so successful that the Burbank Unified School District (BUSD) asked that the program be replicated at six more elementary school sites. The director of that fi rst after school site was Shanna Warren. She's now our CEO. And that was just the beginning.

In the fall of 2004, we added the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (D/HH) program. Then in 2006 we took a moribund arts program and turned it into an award winning Creative Arts program that offered dance, drama, singing and art in several mediums. In 2007, our Club and BUSD forged a partnership wherein the Club provided the after school programming at four additional sites. These programs are known as After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program.

By 2008, our Club recognized that teens were an important subset of our demographic and put together specific programs for this age group that was free and continues to be free today. As we welcomed a new decade in 2010, we expanded our reach into middle school and watched our membership approach 1,000 children a day. In addition, our Deaf and Hard of Hearing program was growing and by 2012 our geographical growth included Burbank, Glendale, North Hollywood, Sun Valley and Verdugo Hills. In 2024, we now serve over 3,900 youth at 29 locations. And yet, at its heart, the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and GEV is still a place for our (bigger than ever) neighborhood kids to call home.

In 2018, we embarked on a journey to find a new home for our growing club. We set out to raise over $6M and within 3 years of setting this goal, we moved into a new building in March 2021. Now our club members have a new place to call their home away from home, fully equipped with a commercial grade kitchen, a state of the art gymnasium, an updated performance center, and plenty of room for Art, STEM, Teen Programming, Athletics, and much much more. We have locations in Burbank, North Hollywood, Hollywood, Van Nuys and Encino CA and partner with LAUSD, Burbank Unified School District and the Los Angeles Archdiocese.
