The Variety Boys and Girls Club provides innovative and stimulating academic, leadership and recreational programming in a safe and nurturing environment to the underserved children and families in the historic Boyle Heights community. Tax ID 95-1919219


The Variety Boys & Girls Club is a trusted nonprofit organization that has served at-risk children of Boyle Heights since 1949.  For 65 years, the Club has provided a refuge for children who daily struggle with real life circumstances of poverty, under-resourced neighborhoods, low educational attainment, gang violence, substance abuse and poor health outcomes.

These are some of the most impoverished kids in some of the toughest neighborhoods and Club Staff works to ensure that our programming meets kids where they are in their cognitive development as well as provides for basic needs (e.g., nutrition) so they are ready to learn. It can be a complex journey to educate these children but the Club believes that all children can learn at high levels if given the opportunity to excel.
