The Burbank City Council is reconsidering its decision to cut a $52,000 after-school program as the nonprofit that stepped in to fill the void warned that it may not be able to shoulder the financial burden for much longer.
The Burbank Boys and Girls Club of Burbank and Greater East Valley has operated the Middle School After School Program since August, when city officials axed it because of low attendance and budget constraints.
Burbank Unified School District asked the organization to step in before the start of the school year to offer a drop-in program for teens at John Muir and Jordan middle schools.
"We understand the city's financial situation and they have been and continue to be very supportive of our current programs," the nonprofit's executive director, Shanna Warren, said. "We will do our best to continue to operate the program for as long as we can, but without other sources, it will be difficult to continue."
