Welcome to

Boys & Girls Club of Whittier

The Boys & Girls Club of Whittier provides after-school and summer programs for youth ages 6 to 18 years old that emphasize Academic Success; the development of good Character & Citizenship; and the formation of Healthy Lifestyles.

We currently operate our programs at 24 locations: The Main Clubhouse on Greenleaf Avenue in Whittier serves youth from 6-18 from throughout the community, the Club at El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera serves El Rancho students, and we currently serve youth in the Whittier City School District in partnership with Reach for the Stars. We also serve youth in the East Whittier School District, South Whittier School District and Los Nietos School District.

The Boys & Girls Club of Whittier is a place that any child can find safety, encouragement, and the strength to grow and become a contributing member of our community.

Youth of the Year

Since 1947, Youth of the Year has been Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of Club members. Each year, one exceptional young person from a Boys & Girls Club rises to the role of National Youth of the Year. The National Youth of the Year serves as both an exemplary ambassador for Boys & Girls Club youth and as a strong voice for all of our nation’s young people.

The journey to being named National Youth of the Year begins locally and progresses to state, regional and national levels, with an additional military phase for members of BGCA-affiliated Youth Centers on U.S. military installations.

2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, but even more so for Boys & Girls Club kids and their families. As jobs were cut and schools were closed, many families had difficulty buying groceries, finding childcare and accessing Wi-Fi and devices for kids to continue their education.

The simple things mean everything for kids who are struggling right now: A healthy snack, a hot meal, a device to participate in school, an adult who will be there no matter what. Now, we need your help to give kids the simplest gift of all — a fresh start in the new year.

Help us do whatever it takes to ensure kids have access to the simple things that mean the most, now and always.
