Can you tell me about WYN CLUB?
The Whittier Youth Network (WYN) Club is an after-school/summer drop-in recreation program for children second-fifth grade and summer ages 7-13 years.

Can you give me information on Friday Forum?
Friday Forum is a dance program for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who attend a Whittier school or reside in the City of Whittier. Dances are held on the first Friday of each month at the Whittier Community Center. The dance begins at 7 p.m. and concludes at 10 p.m. The charge for the Friday Forum dance is $5 per student. Refreshments are also available for an additional charge. Space is limited, so children need to plan to arrive early. A valid school ID and signed parent permission slip are required. When the dance is over, parents/guardians need to walk into the Whittier Community Center to pick up their child. No child will be released without a parent or a guardian. Children that have not been picked up by 10:15 p.m. will be sent to the Police Station until their parents/guardian is able to pick them up. A late fee will be charged.
