Teen Empowerment Strategy
For almost 20 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Orange Coast has served teens making it one of the longest-standing and most successful teen centers in Orange County. Club teens participate in our Teen Empowerment Strategy, a comprehensive approach to impacting their lives and preparing them for their transition into adulthood. Our Teen Empowerment Strategy focuses on core areas such as college preparedness, life-skills, recreation, fiscal responsibility, career aspirations, social skills, volunteer work, and academic reinforcement. In recent years, the Club has steadily increased its investment in teen services in areas such as college scholarships, internships, outreach efforts, and most recently completed a capital campaign enabling us to open our new Garage Teen Center, which will allow us to serve 60% more teens annually.
