Boys and Girls Club of Burbank

The Boys & Girls Club of Burbank and Greater East Valley started as a place for the neighborhood kids to hang out and play. Long before there were official school sites or a tech lab or even a club van, it was just a bunch of young people wanting a place to call their own.

So in 1995, an old firehouse on Buena Vista Street was converted into a Boys & Girls Club. Members of the community donated their time and talent, walls got painted, shelves got mounted, staff was hired and the Main Club site was born and became home to about 75 kids.

Seven years later, in 2002 the principal at Roosevelt Elementary School approached us with the idea to pilot an after school program on the Roosevelt site. The Roosevelt Elementary program was so successful that the Burbank Unified School District (BUSD) asked that the program be replicated at six more elementary school sites. The director of that first after school site was Shanna Warren. She’ now our CEO. And that was just the beginning.
