South Bay Community Group

South Bay

Club 21 South Bay Community Group is for families with children with Down syndrome to locally network, share common interests, concerns, challenges, and information. We do this through informational meetings, play dates, youth group, Facebook webpages and community activities. 

Club21SB began life as South Bay Down Syndrome Association serving families with children and adults with Down syndrome in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County. In 2016 we realized that that best way to empower our families, educate others and realize the potential of our children with Down Syndrome was to join Club 21 as a Community Group.

We have monthly events including Playdates for 0-5, Youth Group and Monday Night Meetings for parents and caregivers. For Self advocates we support the UpVoice program and we also have a signing class for young families called Supersigners.

If you wish to join our community group please become a Club 21 member and then sign up for our monthly newsletter. Our events are also posted on our Facebook page, We also have a closed Facebook group at  for local families only. You may also like to follow us on Pinterest or Twitter.
