Do you believe in magic? Our Club kids sure do! Members from Whitney Mac and the Hammack Activity Center got to see the magic unfold and experience the fascination when Magician Mike Freeman stopped into town! Freeman painted a wonderful enchantment for our Club kids to be in awe over. Illusion after illusion, our Club kids were taken back by the magic in the air! Not only did Freeman have all of our Club members hooked from the start, but they were all in disbelief over the experience taking place in front of their eyes! Needless to say, our Club kids were stunned and taken back from the energy in the air!

Thank you to Magician Mike Freeman from The Academy of Magical Arts at The Magic Castle in Hollywood, California for taking the time out of your day to spread a little bit of magic over all of our wonderful Club kids!

Thanks to the Lancaster JetHawks Baseball Foundation and some amazing local sponsors, over 100 Club members are thrilled to participate in the JetHawks Youth Baseball League!  The goal of the Lancaster JetHawks Baseball Foundation is to help as many of our local youth as possible find confidence, hope, improved health and a skill set that will help them not just on the baseball diamond, but in life.  The Boys & Girls Club of Antelope Valley was honored and humbled when asked to partner with the Lancaster JetHawks Baseball Foundation. For many of our youth, this is their first introduction to the game of baseball and organized sports. Through their participation in the league, each child receives a baseball glove, uniform, hat and bag, plus meals and the chance to play with their friends on the same field that Major League prospects have played on for the last 20 years- at no cost to the Club or our members.

Needless to say, the energy of the kids when they came off the bus and entered the stadium was electrifying! The kids, coaches and volunteers were pumped up for our first game as Lancaster City Manager, Mark Bozigian, who also serves as the Commissioner of the Lancaster JetHawks Youth Baseball League, took the field to open the inaugural season with the flag salute and league pledge.

Our New Site

Wow, this has been quite a year! The need for quality and affordable after school care is growing in the Antelope Valley. Everyday thousands of kids are left unattended after school in our community. Did you know that juvenile crime jumps up 67% between the hours of 3pm and 7pm? The Boys & Girls Club of the Antelope Valley is working hard to reach those that need us most.

We are excited to announce the opening of 3 new Club sites this fall.  This brings our total number of locations up to 25!  You can find a Club site closest to you here.     Since we are expanding that means we are in need of quality individuals that are ready to join the team and make a positive impact in a child's life.  Check out our new Careers page to join the team.

Our new site makes it easier to Register your child, get information on Volunteering and become a Supporter of the Club.  Not finding what you are looking for? Send us an email and we will add it to our site or make it better!

We hope you enjoy the new site!
