  • Mission:
  • One of over 4,300 Boys & Girls Clubs, our collective mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) has conducted extensive research to identify the key elements of positive youth development that lead to greater impact. Our programs address these elements: a safe, positive environment, fun, supportive relationships, high expectations, and recognition. In addition to national programs, we offer special programs unique to our Club such as the Iben Family Support Center, an on-site counseling center that aims to keep families healthy and intact through a broad range of preventive and support services; Play Now, a comprehensive year-long program of seasonal competitive team sports and physical recreation; Springboard to Opportunity, a program that weaves technology into all our educational, job training, and other youth programs; and Jr. Sailing, a character-building program that teaches sailing, kayaking, and an appreciation of our fragile marine environment at Marina del Rey. Finally, we partner with eight local organization in a Family Source Center working together to help Venice families become more independent.

  • History:
  • The Boys & Girls Club of Venice was established in 1968 as a VISTA project on Venice Beach. The Club then operated for many years from a converted duplex home on Lincoln Boulevard, which was finally condemned after the 1994 Northridge earthquake. In 2000, after a successful capital campaign, the Club celebrated the grand opening of its new 30,000 sq.ft. facility at 2232 Lincoln Boulevard. The new Club features a basketball court and gymnasium, stage area, kitchen, teen/career center and store, counseling department, community room, music room, wellness center, art studio, activity center, computerized learning center, library, and administrative offices. In the last five years, the Club has invested in its mission to provide the best for its members by raising nearly $1 million to renovate programming space in the Club. We operate four satellite facilities, at Venice High School, Mark Twain Middle School, Short Avenue Elementary School and Coeur d’Alene Elementary School.
