WE ARE CULTURALLY COMPETENT AND BILINGUAL
Our trained staff, including club leadership, come from the neighborhoods they serve.
WE REMOVE BARRIERS

WE EXPAND OUR HOURS
The Reiter Family Youth Center in Nyeland Acres, a site that is almost 100% farmworker families, has been open Saturdays since many farmworkers work that day.
WE EMPHASIZE STEAM, NOT STEM

GREAT PARTNERSHIPS OFFER GREATER POSSIBILITIES
In 2021, The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme named the Nyeland Acres Club the Reiter Family Youth Center to reflect the incredibly generosity and leadership of the Reiter Family in serving the children of farm working families.
"As growers, we are stewards – of our land and of our community. I take great pride in working alongside our farmworkers. They make so much possible. It is our responsibility to not only provoke enduring changes in the quality of their lives, but also to invest in the next generation. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme does both. Our workers know their children are in a safe and nurturing environment where they can find their own path towards a great future. I ask you to join me in making sure that our clubs thrive and we grow great futures not only today, but tomorrow." - Garland Reiter
