About the Youth Center
As an affiliate of the Boys and Girls Club of America, Youth Programs at Vandenberg strives to offer the best in the wholesome and worthwhile leisure time activities for the family members of active duty, retired military and civilian employees of the base. Parent participation is highly encouraged, and any volunteer aid for sports activities, or from someone with knowledge and expertise in a specific field is always welcome. The Youth Activities Program runs many different activities including sports programs, instructional courses, and social functions.

The Youth Center also has a Youth Advisory Council that meets the first Wednesday of each month at 5:00 p.m. Come meet the Director and bring your ideas and input to help improve life for Vandenberg's youth. The meeting is open to all youth, members and non-members.
Open Recreation Program
Kids ages 9-18, still attending school, are encouraged to take part in our Open Recreation Program. In addition to regular activities including swimming, bowling, and arts and crafts, many other special programs are planned throughout the year.

Members of open recreation can use their membership cards to check out equipment and receive discounts on special dances and other events. The cost is $5 each day for non-members. The Youth Center has a basketball court, game room, lounge and computer lab available. Nonmembers will be charged one dollar each session.
