The Westbank Unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Louisiana was founded in 1967. The Club was initially started under the leadership of the Westbank Rotary President Al Roussell SR., who wanted to create a place for young men 6-15 to socialize and play. The program thrived under the leadership of the Rotary Club and by the mid 80’s was serving hundreds of young men a year.
The program was later moved to a larger facility and has become an integral part of the Westbank community, solidifying the building’s legacy as a vital resource for youth. The Westbank Unit Boys & Girls Club programs of today serve the educational and developmental needs of the community’s youth. Currently serving over 250 young people each year, the Westbank Unit continues to partner with local Rotary Clubs and local civic and service organizations as well as nearby colleges and universities. Additionally, working closely with Tulane Universities School of Social Work, the Club provides one-on-one counseling and mentoring to the young people they are able to serve.
