Youth Programs offers a variety of programs services, and activities to the youth population of the Los Angeles AFB community. Youth Programs affiliates with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and 4-H to offer the following programs: School Age Program, Youth Sports and Fitness, Open Recreation and Teen Programs.

School-Age Program

The School-Age Program is certified by the Department of Defense and is accredited by the National Afterschool Association (NAA). It provides before and after school care and summer camp programming to 5-year-olds in kindergarten to 12-year-olds. Fees for care are based on total family income and guidance from the Department of Defense. There is currently no waiting list for care in the School Age Program. Inbound families may place their children on the waiting list by faxing a completed DD2606 and a copy of the sponsor’s orders to the program at DSN 633-8384 or commercial 310-653-8384 prior to arrival.

Open Recreation

Open Recreation for 9 to 12-year-olds and Teen Programs for 13 to 18-year-olds offers many BGCA and 4-H Programs. An annual membership fee of $30 is required to participate in both programs and entitles the member to use of the facility for self-directed recreation and discounted attendance of field trips, dances, other scheduled events. Youth and teens are strongly encouraged to join in on the opportunity to lead their peers by joining either the Torch Club or Keystone Club.

Youth Sponsorship Program

The transition to a new community and school can be challenging. Youth may be uncomfortable meeting new peers and may be unaware of opportunities to become involved with their new school or community.  The Youth Sponsorship Program assists in making the transition easier by matching a sponsor with incoming youth.  Submit your request.
