SCHOOL AGE PROGRAMS

An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them and their parents need to know that their children are safe when they cannot be around.  

Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove offers that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. 

Now, more than ever, the children of our community and their families are in need of additional support to help kids succeed in life.  Boys & Girls Clubs of Garden Grove is a leading advocate for quality programs to meet this critical need.

The Club is a safe place to learn and grow - all while having fun. It is the place where great futures are started each and every day.
