The Newly Reimagined Boys & Girls Club of Irvine

I am an official ambassador for Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Orange Coast

For many of us who grew up in the ’80s/’90’s, our memory of the Boys & Girls Club was dirty carpets, torn couches, and pool tables. Well, those days are gone, and the Boys & Girls Club has transformed into one of the best places for children to learn and grow after school.

Teen Room at Boys & Girls Club Irvine

The Boys & Girls Club of Central Orange Coast (Costa Mesa, Irvine, Newport Beach, Orange, and Santa Ana) have recently undergone a $2 million transformation. I took my son last week to the all-new Irvine location to get an inside look at their high-tech teen room.

The Irvine Club is equipped to educate youth for the careers of the 21st century while continuing to advance the IMPACT Model that motivates members to graduate on time, plan for their futures, and prepare for success. The IMPACT Model is a nationally recognized learning method that brings a holistic approach to youth development and keeps kids on track with up to 60 additional days of academic instruction per year.

What I was most impressed with at the Irvine Club was their teen center. The minute that we walked into the room, my son did not want to leave. There were video games, huddle rooms, culinary center, fitness equipment, and more. It is one of the coolest teen hangout spots in Orange County.
