We've Come a Long Way
In 1988, through the dedicated work of community leaders, the local Chamber of Commerce, and the generous support of Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, the Boys & Girls Club of Harbor City/Harbor Gateway was formed as an extension of the Boys & Girls Club of Wilmington. The Club provided gang alternative programming at the Normont Terrace Housing Development in response to the escalation in gang violence in the surrounding areas. After two short years, the organization detached from the Wilmington Club and earned its charter from the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. In 2001, as services expanded into neighboring communities, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the South Bay was created. Today it serves thousands of boys & girls in the communities through out the South Bay.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the South Bay has a total of 5 active locations. Our locations include:
