Frequently Asked Questions

What do you do?

We are not a typical after-school program where we simply look after kids until parents come to pick them up! We exist to help our members grow and learn to become productive, caring, responsible members of our community. We offer programs and services based around academics, social recreation, healthy living and leadership.

Where are you located?

We have three locations in Monrovia. Our Clubhouse and Teen Center sites are located in Recreation Park on Shamrock Avenue. We also have a full after-school program at Mayflower Elementary School.

What time are you open?

During the school year, all three sites are open from the end of school hours until 6:30 pm. Our Mayflower location is also open before school at 6:30am. During the summer, furlough days and school breaks, our Shamrock and Teen Center sites are open from 7:00 am until 6:30 pm.

How much does membership cost?

Membership costs $15 per year per child. Each site has an additional monthly program fee. See membership for more details.

Is financial aid available?

Yes! Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills strives to make our services affordable for every family. If you need financial assistance, please contact our membership coordinator for details.

How do you supervise the kids?

Safety is our primary concern at Boys & Girls Club of the Foothills and we strive to keep our kids safe in every way. Members are each given an ID card that they use to sign in and out electronically when they arrive at and leave from the Club. All members who use club transportation travel on a California-registered School Bus with a certified driver. The ratio of children to staff at the each of our club sites is 20:1.

Can I volunteer?

Yes! We are always looking for able and willing volunteers to help with tutoring, mentoring, or simply hanging out with our kids! Simply fill out a volunteer application and drop it off at the club. All of our staff and volunteers are required to submit to a background check before working with our kids. For more information, please email, our Volunteer Coordinator.
