Mission Statement

To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Background Statement

Since 1989, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim has been in the forefront of youth development, providing programs and services for girls and boys that other youth-serving agencies fail to reach.  The Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim, through the dedicated and compassionate leadership of the Board of Directors, Executive Director, and staff, has provided a place for thousands of children in Anaheim to obtain a sense of belonging, take control of their lives, and work toward achieving their goals.

Currently over 1,000 children per year participate in the programs and services offered at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim. There are three Club sites within the City of Anaheim which includes one site in low-income housing and two traditional Clubs. The majority of our members are from low-income, minority families who are unable to afford a fee based program. Our membership fee is just $30 per calendar year per child. The fees are much lower than other youth-serving agencies so that every child can afford to belong. However, no child will ever be turned away due to an inability to pay for membership. The Clubs are available to all children as a positive alternative to the host of negative influences and pressures they encounter every day.

Impact Statement

Working with the City of Anaheim, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim relocated to a brand-new facility in Manzanita Park. We are located in what was once a gang infested area with high drug use, a severe homeless problem and a neighborhood with excessive crime. Since opening at the new facility in May of 2016, we have seen a dramatic reduction in gang activity, crime, drug activity and homelessness. In essence, we have helped to empower families to begin steps in transforming their neighborhood, to take the park back for the community. We are changing the culture of this community and now have families utilizing the park for what it was intended, a place for residents to relax and enjoy outdoor activities.

The community we serve is one of high need, where 75% of our members are Hispanic, a conservative estimate of 3% have learning disabilities, and 100% fall well below the poverty line. We serve 14 local motels, 7 low-income housing/Section 8, provide transportation, and offer scholarship opportunities for those who cannot afford our nominal $20 annual fee. Our staff, volunteers, and interns work cohesively to develop and implement youth programming, conduct outreach in our community, and provide assistance for the various family resources we offer. We are open five days per week and offer a broad range of programs and services for children ages 5-18. The programs fall under five core areas which include: 1) Education and Career Development, 2) Character and Leadership Development, 3) Health and Life Skills, 4) The Arts, and 5) Sports, Fitness and Recreation. In 2018, our Clubs provided more than 900 hours of programming to more than 1200 youth throughout the City of Anaheim.

Recognizing the needs of children and families in the area, BGCA has established a goal of being a resource in all areas where families need help, starting with their children’s development and including ensuring access to other critical family strengthening resources such as parenting classes, family counseling, providing basic needs, tax and legal assistance.

With this new mentality, eagerly engaged in a new collaborative partnership with The Raise Foundation we began implementing monthly food distributions. Through this collaborative effort we have successfully drawn more partners to the effort including Second Harvest Food Bank, the Hurtt Family Clinic, the Orange County Family Justice Center and Orange County’s Health Care Agency. Through our shared resources we have been able to implement monthly food distributions and free health clinics. In 2018, we distributed food to over 1500 families which adds up to 6300 individuals. These distributions have been an immediate success for our organization as well as the health clinics we offer alongside them.

Needs Statement

Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim believes that all children have the opportunity to become great leaders in the future. Unfortunately, today’s youth face tremendous obstacles. Consider that about 3% of children in Anaheim are homeless. Anaheim has a population of over 351,000 where poverty and crime is high while hope and services are low. The percent of individuals living in poverty in Anaheim Ca, is 16.2%. Anaheim also received an “F” rating on cost of living and education. According to a 2016 study done by Boys & Girls Clubs of America, every dollar spent on gang prevention saves a city $10. This means a decrease in police calls, violent crimes, graffiti and public property damage. In addition, we have noticed that families are enjoying Manzanita Park once again. For years, residents avoided the park due to gang activity.

Our Programs are dedicated to stimulate our youth and achieve positive outcomes, specifically in three core areas: Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles. We implement these programs to improve the upsetting crisis statistics in Anaheim. Consistent access to a broad range of programs drives positive outcomes for youth and reinforces the necessary life skills they need to become productive, caring and responsible citizens.

Our Club’s goals are to positively impact youth from the moment they enter our doors.

CEO Statement

Our Executive Director, has been connected since our beginning. A founding member of our Board of Directors back in 1989, John served on our Board until he agreed to be our interim Executive Director in 2015. Taking to the role naturally, John was officially named to the position just a few months later. Living in Anaheim his entire life, John's intimate knowledge of the City has been a great resource to our organization.

Board Chair Statement

Our Board Chair is Dennis Kuhl Chairman of the Los Angeles Angels. As Chairman of the Los Angeles Angels, Dennis’ central focus is in the area of civic affairs and community outreach. Dennis has been a member of our Board since 2010 and his work with the Angels Foundation has been a gift to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim, yielding yearly clothing distributions for our kids. His experience spans over years of service in several Southern California charities and nonprofit organizations. In 2007, Dennis established his own nonprofit organization the Bud Kuhl Wood Bat Invitational, with proceeds donated to local charities. A champion of community involvement, his experience in business and nonprofit organizations has been integral part of our organization.

  3. Community Improvement, Capacity Building -




The Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim is heavily focusing on the development of skills in the Science, Technology, Engineering, The Arts and Math by introducing our youth to STEAM programming. We realize there is an education gap in the education of STEAM in the school systems so we are working diligently to fill that gap. Our program offers educational field trips and experiences that otherwise would not be offered to them. Careers in STEAM are in high demand and our mission is to enable our youth to become self-sufficient and responsible citizens. Our STEAM lessons are very informative and educational while also being fun and engaging. Some of the activities our youth participate in are digital arts, Photoshop, painting/drawing, Coding and building.

Budget  100,000
Category  Science & Technology, General/Other Computer & Information Science
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) At-Risk Populations Minorities
Program Short-Term Success  While we are very passionate about sending our members to college, we realize that this is a process that does not show overnight success. We have to set short term goals to measure our progress towards our ultimate goal. Short term goals include working alongside teachers and educators at our members' schools to make sure what we teach is compatible with what they teach. Keeping these relationships healthy is a consistent goal we carry so that we are able to contact them about grade point averages. The measuring of gpa's before and after enlisting in our STEAM program gives us a quantifiable number that we can measure when determining our effectiveness. Our science courses are measured by tests that are given pre and post course.
Program Long-Term Success  This program deals directly with preparing our youth for the future. The focus of STEAM is to round out our young members by exposing them to a variety of ideas and concepts they would not normally experience in their communities. On the technological side, the ultimate change will be seen in college preparation. Our goal for STEAM is to see the number of members applying and being accepted into college rise dramatically. As our goal is to improve the community by breaking the cycle of poverty, the way we intend to measure this is to compare our efforts against the numbers of kids we see achieving more than their parents did.
Program Success Monitored By  Mathematics scores are an easy way to determine our effectiveness. Where other areas can be difficult to understand whether comprehension has increased among our members, mathematics is simple in that answers are either right or wrong and approaches are either effective or ineffective. In this way, our schools are our greatest assets in making sure we are doing what we need to do in terms of presenting our programs effectively.
Examples of Program Success  Our teens are perhaps the best example that shows us our members react well to the STEAM program. We partnered with a local school, Skyview, that focuses on homeless and impoverished children ranging from elementary to high school age. Our teen leader, Nichole Barboza, implemented the STEAM program with our teens and through a process of comparison before and after the program was started, we saw a significant rise in grade point averages. Our younger members have experienced success as well. After implementing our science program, 'Billy Nye' we have seen science scores improve by an average of 49%.

Power Hour

Power Hour is our comprehensive homework help and tutoring program focused on reinforcing concepts learned at school. After noticing that many children at our Club have fallen 1-4 years beyond their grade level, we decided to shift the way we run the program. If a child does not have homework that they received from school then we give them an age-appropriate workbook to sharpen their skills in math and English. For those who have difficulty reading, we have started the Lexia program which is an adaptable system designed to detect the comprehension level a child is at and present them with a manageable reading curriculum. Power Hour is mandatory for all members attending the Clubs. Club staff and tutors are available to help youth with their homework and projects four days per week.
Budget  $30,000.00
Category  Education, General/Other Afterschool Enrichment
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) At-Risk Populations Minorities
Program Short-Term Success  Short term we plan to see our kids respond more positively to doing their homework. Shifting the mindset of these children is a job in itself and we realize it is a process of taking baby steps to achieve our goals. On a yearly basis though, we want to see our members reduce the distance of how far behind they are from their peers.
Program Long-Term Success  The long term success of our program is similar to our STEAM programming in that our hope for our members is that they can go to college. To change our community, we believe we must give young people the tools to break themselves out of the cycle and that is what Power Hour aims to do. Long term we would like to see our members catch up academically to their grade level in math, English, and reading. An extra goal would be to see our kids who succeed turn around and give back as tutors.
Program Success Monitored By  Program success is measured by Skyview, the school we partner with to focus on children who are homeless or have disciplinary issues. We are able to track a child's progression through Lexia to mark the improvements they have made in their reading comprehension. Progress reports are sent home from Skyview via the children and are a means of measuring growth.
Examples of Program Success  We have seen massive growth in the grade point averages at Skyview School. From the last report we received in 2016, the average gpa was 3.31.

Distressed Neighborhoods Outreach Program

Motel Kids & Distressed Neighborhoods Outreach Program is a special program that is unique to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim. The purpose of the program is to assist the children and families living in the 43 motels in Anaheim, homeless shelters, low-income housing, foster care, and 12 gang-infused neighborhoods. The thousands of youth living in these conditions have nowhere to play except in parking lots, which are susceptible places for encountering drugs and alcohol, gang activity, and other negative influences. Transportation is provided to and from the motels to the club sites, and the youth receive free memberships to the club, with access to all of the programs and services offered.
Budget  $80,000.00
Category  Community Development, General/Other Neighborhood Revitalization
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) At-Risk Populations Minorities
Program Short-Term Success  In the short term we would love to involve more children in our transportation program. Community outreach is expected to bring in more families who can afford to pay our minimal costs to ensure they can attend daily.
Program Long-Term Success  In the long term we would like to see our Clubs grow to accommodate more members every year. At this time, we have four vans and a school bus that either pick children up from school or from home. Our goal would be to expand these resources and add another bus to our arsenal.
Program Success Monitored By 
Success will be determined according to how many more children have enrolled in the transportation system. It will also be measured by the growth that stems from community outreach i.e. flyers, knocking on doors, etc.
Examples of Program Success  At this time we have expanded to provide transportation from four local elementary schools. These schools are Franklin, Mann, Lincoln, and Sunkist elementary. With the addition of more vans and buses we will be able to expand our impact and reach further into the community.
