Our Story

Carl and Edith Rehnborg started the Kids Club in 1948 as a safe place for boys to grow and play. They brought together a group of community leaders to create an afterschool clubhouse environment for children and adolescents. Over the years, it has evolved into what is now known as The Boys & Girls Club of Buena Park. Through the continued involvement of the Rehnborg’s son Dr. Sam Rehnborg, and the support of many Nutrilite suppliers and employees, the Club grew into a safe and nurturing environment for our youth and teens. At Nutrilite, they know positive choices lead to long and healthy lives. Dr. Rehnborg is a continued supporter and very proud of his parents’ involvement within the community of Buena Park. The Boys & Girls Club of Buena Park is a place where children are exposed to resources and mentors that encourage healthy decisions. Today, Dr. Rehnborg’s daughter, Lisa Rehnborg, is an active Board member. Amway and Nutrilite continue to be a source of volunteers and financial support to the Club. The Boys & Girls Club of Buena Park is, and will always be, an integral part of the Rehnborg family, Nutrilite, and Amway. Dr. Rehnborg knows his parents would be proud to see how their legacy lives on.
