Clubhouses of the Boys and Girls Club of Central Orange Coast should be able to provide programs for more children by the fall, thanks to $5 million in renovations planned this summer.

Facilities will get learning labs with laptops and tablets, as well as a “maker studio” with 3-D printers and an art wall. The gyms at the Newport Beach and Costa Mesa clubs will also get new floors, bleachers and other upgrades, the organization’s CEO Robert Santana said.

The organization serves 9,000 students in Costa Mesa, Irvine, Newport Beach, Orange and Santa Ana at four clubhouses and about 60 partner schools where facilities are used after school. The clubhouses are in Costa Mesa, Irvine, Newport Beach and Santa Ana.

The buildings won’t be physically enlarged, but will be reassembled to increase their usable space, Santana said.
