  • Mission:
  • Our mission is to “inspire and empower young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring adults.” Our programs focus on: Education and Career Development; The Arts; Character and Leadership; Health and Life Skills; and Athletics, Social Recreation, and Fitness.

  • Overview:
  • The Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood provides a safe haven for disadvantaged students, and its well-designed programs also foster positive youth development. Parents rely on our convenient transportation services, healthy meals and snacks, and affordable ($30 annual fee) year-round programs to keep their children safe during the vulnerable after-school hours.

    Each year, over 1,400 students benefit from our out-of-school programming that also helps keep them safe, fed, and supervised, away from gangs, crime, drugs, and other risky behaviors. To assist our students with their academic growth and physical and mental development, they are provided with an array of learning opportunities, including academic enrichment, sports and fitness, computer literacy, and music and art programs. Our staff and volunteers provide mentorship, tutoring, and guidance, serving as positive role models for our students.

    Our wide range of programs and services focus on the following 5 fundamental core areas: Education and Career Development, Character and Leadership Development, Health and LIfe Skills, Arts Program, and Athletics, Social Recreation and Fitness.

    Parents can stay at work, confident in the knowledge that their children will be transported to our facility and remain in a healthy and structured environment with many activities to assist in their healthy development.

    Each year, our students progress in academics as well. Last year's students in grades K-6 reported proficient or advanced in the following subjects as displayed on their school report cards:

    • Reading –94 %
    • Math – 91%
    • Science – 95%

  • History:
  • The Boys & Girls Club of Hollywood has been providing academic enrichment programs to at-risk and underprivileged students since its founding in 1937. We offer a broad array of academic, health, artistic, and leadership programs for our students at our main facility, as well as after school programs at West Hollywood and Van Ness elementary schools.

    We serve over 1,400 students in Los Angeles from predominantly low-income families from 84 elementary schools, 10 middle schools, and 6 high schools. Our diverse ethnic composition is 70% Latino/Hispanic, 10% Asian, 10% African American, 5% Multi-racial, and 5% Caucasian. Approximately 86% of our students qualify for the federal free and reduced priced school meals program and are from families with an annual income of less than $30,000. We serve a densely populated, low-income community where gang and crime rates are high, homelessness is visible, many speak a language other than English at home, and many have not achieved a high school diploma. Our facility is open weekdays from 2:00pm to 7:00pm during the school year and from 7:30am to 7:00pm during the spring, summer, and winter breaks
