ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Founded in 1995, the Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and the Greater East Valley helps young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. The organization is committed to providing affordable after school, summer, extended day care programs and services covering a wide range of programs at little to no cost.

GRANT PURPOSE

Money Matters & Career Launch  teaches youth, ages 10-18, about basic money management including budgeting, saving, investing, and managing a checking account.

This year our teens had a great time with the Career Launch and Money Matters program. It helped them identify personal goals and better understand their own financial goals. Club members responded warmly and with enthusiasm for the program.
