This school year the seven Boys & Girls Clubs in North Orange County (Anaheim, Brea-Placentia-Yorba Linda, Buena Park, Cypress, Fullerton, La Habra, and Stanton) have partnered together through the North Orange County Public Safety Task Force to provide fun collaborative opportunities for teen Club members. These opportunities engage teens in activities that break down barriers, build greater awareness and understanding of cultural diversity, and encourage teamwork through fun. Each month one of the Boys & Girls Clubs from “The Big 7” host a fun, teens-only night for all partnering Club teens.
On Friday, February 15th the Boys & Girls Club of Cypress hosted an Anti-Valentine Teen Night for over 140 Boys & Girls Club teens. The Anti-Valentine Night activities included “speed dating” icebreaker games, a healthy relationships workshop provided by Western Youth Services, and a delicious Italian dinner generously donated by Dominic’s Ristorante Italiano and Caterina’s Club. After the workshop, teen attendees enjoyed a variety of fun friendship-building activities such as karaoke, a movie screening, video game tournaments, a piñata, cookie decorating, and much more! It was a great night bringing an amazing group of teen leaders together at the Club!
The Boys & Girls Club of Cypress will be opening a 1,600 square foot expansion to better serve teen Club members this Spring. The Bandai Teen Center will have room for 100 teen members and will enable the Club to offer even more leadership development projects for the teens in the local community.
