The Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica will welcome the community for a tour and lunch at its Lincoln Branch, 1238 Lincoln Blvd., Santa Monica on Thursday, August 13 from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. Reservations are required but there is no charge to attend.

“The tour offers people a chance to see our Club programs in action and learn about opportunities to get involved,” says Kelly Ventimiglia, director of development for the clubs.

Community members will learn about programs, special initiatives and incredible opportunities that the youth in Santa Monica have available to them. The tour includes a visit of the technology center; music studio; a commercial-grade kitchen where kids learn nutrition and cooking; the learning center where members receive help with homework; the gymnasium where students play large group activities and sports; and other areas of the Club, including the outside play areas, plus a peek at Summer Camps currently in session.

Programs are aimed at ensuring youth have a safe, fun and engaging place to be after school and during school breaks, while gaining the skills necessary to achieve academic success, develop good character and citizenship and practice healthy lifestyles.

Established in 1944, the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica is “to inspire and enable all youth, especially those who needs us most, to realize their full potential, as productive, responsible and caring citizens”.

For more information or to RSVP or schedule a tour, contact Kelly Ventimiglia, director of development at (310) 361-8500 x 203 or kventimiglia@smbgc.org.
