With great disappointment, the board of directors of Boys & Girls Club of the Long Beach Peninsula has made the very difficult decision to discontinue its after school operations effective Thursday, October 24, 2019 at 7pm. Unfortunately, financial uncertainty and limited resources have created an ongoing operating challenge for the organization causing this extremely tough decision to be made.
The safety and well-being of the youth we serve are our number one priority. We want to assure parents, donors and the general public that our commitment is unwavering. Over the next several months, our board and Club leadership will evaluate and seek ways to continue providing youth in our community with a positive place to learn and grow, however, the Club will remain closed during this time. Our ultimate goal is to provide the young people who need us most with a sustainable program that will provide them with the opportunities they deserve.
Again, we deeply regret having to make this incredibly hard decision and appreciate the support we’ve been given by parents, donors and our community for the past 11 years.
