The Spring Valley REC Club in Spring Valley, CA gives teens in the community a safe, positive, drug and violence-free place to go to after school. Every day, dozens of youth come to the REC Club where they can do homework, arts & crafts, play sports, make music, play games, and many other activities at no cost. Something we really like at the REC club is expression through performing arts. Unfortunately, funding for performing arts programs in our community’s schools has been replaced in order to fund other programs. Students no longer have as many opportunities to play musical instruments or take part in activities like theatre and dance. Since we have little performing arts in school, we are working hard to bring more to the Spring Valley REC Club.
