|Helping Youth Change Themselves and The World|
Building Leaders For Over 45 Years
Our Mission: To inspire and enable the young people of East Los Angeles and the surrounding communities to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens, and to support their families in this effort.
Our History: Since 1966, the Salesian Boys & Girls Club of Los Angeles--which are located within walking distance of more than 13,000 elementary, middle and high school students--have served the area by providing role models, positive after-school activities, and low-cost alternative programs for thousands of at-risk and economically-disadvantaged youth between the ages of 6 and 18.
Through our youth-orientated programs, we strive to provide support, resources, and opportunities to our members and our community.
Our Members: We serve over 2,300 At-Risk Youth Annually. 98% of our club members are Latino and 2% Other. Over 70% of our club members come from low-income families.
