Pico Rivera, CA—Yesterday, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn was in Pico Rivera to cut the ribbon at the grand opening of the new Boys and Girls Club of Pico Rivera Clubhouse. The new youth center was made possible by a $300,000 grant from Supervisor Hahn which covered necessary renovations to the building. The new clubhouse was created in what was an unused 3,200 square foot building adjacent to Ruben Salazar Continuation School.
“This new Boys and Girls Club youth center is going to be a safe space young people can come after school and during summer vacation,” said Supervisor Janice Hahn. “They will be able to hang out with their friends, get homework help, or meet with a mentor. This is the kind of support that can make all the difference in a young person’s future.”
The Boys & Girls Club of Whittier and Pico Rivera provides after-school and summer programs for young people that emphasize academic success, the development of good character, and the formation of healthy lifestyles. The new clubhouse is meant to be a place where any young person can find safety and encouragement.
Hahn was joined by Pico Rivera Mayor Pro Tem Andrew Lara, and Councilmembers Gustavo Camacho and Johnny Garcia.
