In addition to our three Club houses, we run 11 Club sites at local LAUSD schools where we implement enrichment programming in academics, arts and athletics. The competitive teams at our school sites are making major strides. Our Fleming Middle School dance team won the National Championship at the 2014 Jamfest Dance Competition in Las Vegas for the second straight year. Our Harry Bridges Span School cheer team won first place at the Sharp Regional Competitions and an invitation to advance in the national competition. The Wilmington Middle School robotics team, a school program that we facilitate after hours, won Best Overall Championship at the F.I.R.S.T. Robotics Competition at Legoland California.

Our school Club sites organize programming that our youth would not otherwise be able to participate in. We introduced and coordinate the dance and cheer teams at Fleming Middle School and Harry Bridges Span School and extended participation opportunities for the Wilmington Middle School robotics team.
In many cases at our school Club sites, we step in to support and extend already existing programs. At Wilmington Middle School, Dana Middle School and Banning High School, we coordinate after school practice for marching band and drill team. This broadens rehearsal and performance opportunities as well as increases the number of youth who are able to partake in music education at the schools we serve.
Our School Sites Director Bryan Jebo and his team lead our school Club sites, making it possible for our youth to stay after hours and reach their full potential.
