Oceanside CA— Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside (BGCO) received $15,000 in grant funding from Price Philanthropies Foundation to enrich and expand after-school programming.
For many youth in our community, the end of the school day signals the start of an afternoon without supervision, without productive activities and without direction. Here at the Club, the opposite occurs; more than 1,300 youth participate in engaging and life-changing Club programs each day.
BGCO emphasizes five core Club program areas: Character & Leadership Development; Education & Career Development; Health & Life Skills; The Arts; and Sports, Fitness & Recreation. Activities in these five core areas support Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s overarching goal to help each child reach their full potential and BE GREAT by securing academic success, living a healthy lifestyle and distinguishing themselves as young leaders.
By providing these programs, our members receive invaluable benefits: a safe and supervised environment, academically enriching activities, healthy snacks and meals, and caring and supportive mentors. BGCO also provides working parents with peace of mind knowing that their child is in a safe and supervised space during out-of-school hours.
