ELOP (Expanded Learning Opportunities Program)

What is ELOP?

Within the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P), “Expanded learning” means before school, after school, summer, or intersession learning programs that focus on developing the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs and interests of students through hands-on, engaging learning experiences. It is the intent of the Legislature that expanded learning programs are pupil-centered, results-driven, include community partners, and complement, but do not replicate, learning activities during the regular school day and school year.

Available for TK-6th Grade Students  

Laguna Beach Unified ELOP is only available for our Canyon Branch location   

Why should you take advantage of ELOP at the Club?

The Club is an integral part of the Laguna Beach community and has worked collaboratively with the district for many years to provide engaging, high-quality programming to area youth in a positive and safe environment.

Participating students will be transported via bus from Top of World and El Morro Elementary Schools, as well as Thurston Middle School, to the BGC facility located in Laguna Canyon.

Eligible students will have the opportunity to participate in ELO-P activities during all instructional days, between after-school dismissal time through 6:00 pm. During summer break (20 days), winter break (5 days), and spring break (5 days), students will have the opportunity to attend ELO-P sessions with the BGC for nine hours per day.  All program fees will be paid by the District for any “unduplicated” student.

“My son absolutely loves going there. Everyone that works there is sweet and caring. They understand my child’s needs and they go above and beyond for him. Couldn’t ask for a better place for him to go.”

“Every single employee doing great job for kids. Thank you so much for the above and beyond service to our kids.”

“My child is an English learner. The hours spent at Boys & Girls Club give her an English speaking environment and help building her confidence in this new language environment. Thank you for providing this facility to my child!”

“My child absolutely loves the Boys and Girls club program. Loves all the staff and values how the program fosters friendships and creative expression!”

“The Boys and Girls club has changed my son's life. He loves going to the Boys and Girls club so much. Before this year (when he didn't go), we struggled with focus, staying on target and being oppositional/defiant. This year has changed though. His grades have improved tremendously (without any medication he once took), he is calmer, and so much more relaxed. The only thing that was different was the Boys and Girls Club. He constantly wants to be at the club socializing, playing sports, games, doing homework and so much more. He was so excited when he got an award through the BGC (as he never got an award at school). This meant so much to him. He feels like he belongs to something (as unfortunately I cannot pay for him to do extracurricular sports or activities), therefore, he would just be at home (as an only child). The Boys and Girls club is that one constant thing in his life that really means so much to him and it is something that is truly shaping his life for the future in such a positive way. I cannot express how much gratitude I have that he can do this program. The Boys and Girls Club has changed my son's life.”
