The Boys & Girls Club of the West Valley has opened two new sites this school year, expanding its after-school programming to seven campuses, according to Board Chairman Gary Thomas. The new sites are Topeka Elementary School in Northridge and Enadia Way Elementary School in West Hills. 

Other West Valley Boys & Girls Club sites include Reseda and Blythe Elementary Schools, Canoga Park High School, Tierra del Sol, and the main facility in Canoga Park.



In addition to its current array of programs, the Boys & Girls Club of the West Valley will offer classes in four new areas of interest this fall, including: theatre arts, focusing on theatre fundamentals, stage performances, set design and film; dancing and singing classes, with an emphasis on different types of dance, formation of a glee club at the high school site, talent shows and dance showcases; athletics, including conduction of basketball leagues and introduction of an indoor soccer league at the high school; and technology, with continuation of the popular summer program called stop animation, development of a digital arts program, and career development with internship opportunities available for teens.

“Expansion of our after-school programming to reach more children is both a joy and the fulfillment of our goal to be an integral part of youngsters’ lives in the West Valley,” said Thomas. “The continued growth of the Club provides stimulating programming, leadership and character development in a safe and nurturing environment to more kids, an inspiring and much-needed service in our community.”
