For Immediate Release

EXETER, CA, May 17, 2019 -- The Visalia Boys & Girls Club would like to announce the opening of their newly-renovated “The CLUB” Teen Room! The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sequoias recognizes that teens & pre-teens require a space separate from younger Club members. The room is a place for teenagers to call their own and hold activities that better suit their age.

Recently, the Teen Room has received a makeover which includes: a new coat of paint chosen by teen members, new restaurant-style booths for snacking with friends, a huge high-definition TV with a Playstation & Nintendo Switch for video game breaks, and a full-sized kitchen. Along with the Visalia Teen Room, a variety of summer activities and programs will be offered at 6 total Clubs.

The renovation of the room has been made possible by the Measure “N” Grant meant to sponsor extracurricular activities for young adults starting at middle-school-age. Thanks to the Visalia Police Department and the City of Visalia, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sequoias has been awarded the grant. The teen room will be open all summer—Visalia The CLUB memberships for teens are free!

Even if you do not reside in Visalia, your kids and teens can still participate in summer programming.
