Mission of the Boys & Girls Club

The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Conejo & Las Virgenes is to enhance the lives of our youth by providing them with a positive before and after school environment which includes programs that develop values, skills, good health, citizenship, character, and leadership.

As a member of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America movement, our club practices a set of principles, which distinguishes us from other youth development agencies. This is a "tried and true" formula that has made clubs "The Positive Place for Kids & Teens" for over 140 years.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The activities are arranged in a "cafeteria" or "pick and choose" style. Club members choose from several program areas, which activities they like. All program areas have a youth development professional for supervision. Program activities are offered in five core areas:

Character Development and Leadership Development: This area empowers youth to support and influence their Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships with others, develop a positive self-image, participate in the democratic process and respect their own and others' cultural identities.

Education and Career Development: Enables youth to become proficient in basic educational disciplines apply learning to everyday situations and embrace technology.

Health and Life Skills: Develops young people's capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and develop the competencies to live success fully as self-sufficient adults.

The Arts: Enables youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of visual and tactile arts and crafts, performing arts and creative writing.

Sports, Fitness and Recreation: This area develops fitness, positive use of leisure time, skills for stress management, appreciation for the environment and social and interpersonal skills.
