ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Founded in 1991, the Antelope Valley Boys & Girls Club (the Club) helps young people ages 6-18 years old to reach their full potential through youth development programs that emphasize career and academic preparedness, healthy lifestyles, character, and good citizenship. The Club has two club sites and works on 18 school sites where it reaches over 1,600 youth through core club programs each year.

GRANT PURPOSE

To offer and expand Project Learn, the Club's education and enrichment programming, to reach additional youth, increase program hours, and reduce staff-to-youth ratios at its two main program sites.

As we look to COVID-19 recovery and the path forward, academic success and youth-centered learning is a critical priority. Through our partnership with the Jewish Community Foundation, we can ensure the Antelope Valley community emerges from this crisis stronger than ever. We are excited to partner with The Foundation to provide more high-quality programming that will help us to close the equity and opportunity gaps for kids and teens.
