Boys and Girls Clubs of West San Gabriel Valley recently held a dedication to commemorate Yvonne Yiu and Albert Young, M.D., for their commitment and contributions to the club. Also in attendance was Monterey Park Mayor Peter Chan, who presented a certificate recognizing the dedication. The two new Mercedes Metris vans expand the club’s ability to pick up kids from local schools to bring to the club.
“Not only is Yvonne a great leader in business,” remarked JR Dzubak, executive director of the Club, “but also, as a resident of Monterey Park, she is a leader in the community. She is very enthusiastic about extending her community involvement to the club, and we are thrilled to have her join us in creating bright futures for youth.”
Founded in 1972, Boys and Girls Clubs of West San Gabriel Valley delivers fun and educational programs each year to over 6,000 youth of Los Angeles County across six club sites in Monterey Park, La Puente, Baldwin Park, and the public housing developments of Ramona Gardens, Estrada Courts in Boyle Heights, and William Mead in Lincoln Heights.
The clubs provide unique services for the communities, including leadership development, STEM Sailing, social and emotional wellness, academic support, sports, arts, and STEAM. The club also runs a licensed Early Learning Center for children 2 to 5 years old. Club programs are available to youth ages 6 to 18. No child is ever turned away due to an inability to pay. The clubs’ mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need them the most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.
