Ladmo Branch – Tempe
The Club was established in 1963 as the first Branch of Boys & Girls Clubs of the East Valley. We are now part of the Westside Community Center, which opened its doors on September 4, 2001 in the same location as the original Club in Jaycee Park. Along with 11 other partners in the building, we work together to address the needs of the community and residents of all ages. The Ladmo Branch, Tempe assumed responsibility for entire facility on July 01, 2003 in a visionary partnership with City of Tempe. The community we serve in west Tempe is unique. We have an extremely mobile population and an ethnically diverse membership--the most diverse of any club in the East Valley. We serve youth and teens and support programming for preschoolers, adults and seniors. Additionally, the city of Tempe, in partnership with the Tempe Branch of Boys & Girls Clubs of the East Valley, was named one of 100 Best Communities for Young People, by America’s Promise to Youth (2005-2006). In 2005 we were a designated “SAFE PLACE” for kids on behalf of Homebase Youth Services. And, lastly, the Ladmo Branch is home to the 2002-03 National Youth of the Year, Donald Smith and 2010 National Youth of the Year, Mona Dixon.
