Teens Reach New Heights at

Teen Summit 

What is Teen Summit?

This month, teens from our Addison, Oak View and LeFevre Club sites participated in the Los Angeles County Alliance Teen Summit.  The Summit which is an all day event, focuses on strengthening minds, bodies and spirits of our youth.  Workshops featured how to be proactive about personal goals and professional success, personal empowerment, professional development, life and spiritual wellness. Our teens had an incredible time!

Shine Bright

Light a Child's Future

Every child deserves a future and every time someone gives a charitable gift to Boys & Girls Club of Greater Ventura a child's path burns a little brighter.  It makes a difference more than you will ever know.  It helps our Clubs stay open and it provides a place where our children and teens go to grow and learn.  But it starts with you. No donation is too small and every gift matters.  It signifies that you believe in what we do.  Please join with us this holiday season and light a child's future.

Turn On All the Lights

Lights On Afterschool 

Having a place to go afterschool is important and that's why every October, Boys & Girls Club of Greater Ventura participates in the Afterschool Alliance, Lights On Afterschool.  The alliance launched in October 2000 is celebrated in 1,200 communities nationwide, including ours and stresses the importance of having quality and affordable afterschool programs.  In an effort to raise awareness, all four of our Club sites in Ventura participated.  One of the many activities included an artwork display that showcased projects completed over the course of the year.  Take a look below at our Robert Addison Center.
