BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS OF THE

PENINSULA

BGCP is opportunity. For our area’s most underserved youth, from Kindergarten through high school, it’s dance, digital arts and poetry. It’s tutoring and mentorship and academic rigor. It’s trust between caring adults and kids who need someone to turn to. It’s inspiration. And a safe haven. At our clubs, school sites and summer academies, possibilities take shape. Children realize what creative, strong, intelligent individuals they are. They receive the opportunities and support so many of us take for granted. Opportunities which for them, when given, can be a doorway to their dreams.

closing

the gap Even in the heart of Silicon Valley, we are facing a dropout crisis. BGCP is taking action to reverse this crisis now. Children in our poorest neighborhoods don’t lack intelligence.They don’t lack creativity, curiosity, or desire. What they lack is opportunity. And as long as the opportunity gap exists, the achievement gap will too. We implement those proven social and academic interventions that most impact a child’s success in school and in life. For 1700 children in our area’s most challenged neighborhoods, our summer academies, three clubhouses and six school sites provide: Academic Support • Extended learning day

Social & Emotional Learning

• Summer instruction to avoid “summer slide” • Small group instruction

• Individual case management • Enrichment classes that inspire a love for learning

• Unrelenting culture of high expectations • A sense of belonging • Positive role models and peer groups • Long term 1:1 mentorship • Extracurricular activities and exposure • Parental involvement and education

Supporting the

Whole Child With patience and tenacity, BGCP tends to the needs of the entire child: academic, physical, social, and emotional, so he or she can thrive.

The current crisis in K-12 education is the civil rights issue of our time. If I can look at your zip code and tell if your child is going to get a good education - is the American dream still possible? Since our founding, education has been the most important mechanism used by our children to change their circumstances and achieve their dreams. BGCP only furthers those dreams for our children by providing mentors, opportunities, and a safe place for children to learn and grow. As a country, we must embrace this crisis, demand change, and support entities like BGCP that are working to make a difference in the lives of our children. Dr. Condoleezza Rice, former Secretary of State, BGCP Advisory Board Member

BELONGING

BGCP is a place for children to belong. It’s a road for them to walk, hand-in-hand, with adults who mentor, who challenge, who inspire, and who harness potential. We show young people that they are worthy and capable. Under BGCP’s consistent care our members come to understand that they are not alone, but surrounded by peers and adults who support their success, and who will stand by them as they progress towards a bright future.

10


Creating

Connections Mentorship is the critical thread that runs through all the opportunities BGCP provides. We believe that these long term, one-on-one relationships between children and caring adults are what make the difference in a child’s transformation. These personal ties instill a deep sense of belonging, and are instrumental in keeping kids connected, confident and on track. Ms. Chillin’ is like my second mom. She’s someone I can trust, and who cares about me. She helps me with schoolwork and with life. She helped me discover my hidden talent for building. When I first came to the club I was a kid who really didn’t know what I wanted to do or what I wanted to be. I cared about school, but it wasn’t a big priority. Now for me education comes before anything in life. Getting a scholarship to college is my first priority; I want to be an engineer. I know now education can take you places. Amani Kapuya, Member East Palo Alto Clubhouse on his mentor Cherie Nelson-Kabba or Ms. Chillin’, Performance and Digital Arts Director, East Palo Alto Clubhouse

“Before anything it’s about building one-onone relationships. Then trying to find that x-factor. That special innate talent that is unique to every child. And if you can find it and develop it, they can take off.” Cherie Nelson-Kabba, or Ms. Chillin’, BGCP mentor

13


“At BGCP, we start talking with kids about college and careers in Kindergarten. We want to paint a picture of a future that is different than what they see around them.� Tracy Koon, BGCP Board Member and mentor to Nancy Orocio

PROVIDING

a Path

Nancy Orocio and mentor Tracy Koon

BGCP inspires a vision for the future. We show children a way forward. At each step in a young person’s development, BGCP is there to provide guidance, present possibilities and ignite passions. Then together, we develop the skills children need to succeed in school, career, and life. Nancy Orocio and College Bound BGCP means family. It’s the place where I grew as a scholar, as a young lady, and as a passionate leader. Years before I started thinking about college, BGCP’s College Bound Program planted the seed; “You’re going to college. This is what it looks like.” They exposed us to different careers, took us on college tours and made sure I stayed on track. According to statistics, coming from my neighborhood, I shouldn’t be in college. But thanks to my parents, BGCP, and my mentor Tracy Koon, I’m now a sophomore at Santa Clara University studying Political Science. Tracy guided me through the whole process. Even now she plays such an important part in my life. She is an advisor and a friend. I can’t stress enough how comforting it is to know I’m not alone, and that I’ll always have Tracy by my side. Nancy Orocio, BGCP member since age 6, current Santa Clara University College Student

Encouraging

a voice

Self-expression and empowerment are at the core of BGCP’s visual and performance arts programs. At our three digital arts studios, young people discover themselves, and a sense of purpose. They develop critical skills applicable to academic and professional achievement. In our Spoken Word program members create through performance art, poetry, essays and video projects. BGCP members ha college admissions and national honors because of their work in a variety of media. They are just blessed with talent. Our job is to encourage them, to make them feel empowered to not just take on life’s challenges as they come, but to go out there and challenge life. Richard Gali, Director, BGCP Adobe Youth Voices Academy

“You can come here and create, and just find yourself.” Antonette Paviera, BGCP member and performer

Adobe Youth Voices

Digital Arts Academy

Adobe and Microsoft donated state-of-the-art digital arts facilities to BGCP and its members, because they know what we know. When we ignite a young person’s passions, and support them with tangible skills, we provide a path. The day before my brother got shot, I promised him that I was going to be the person that he always wanted me to be. My mentor at BGCP is like my brother now. He helped me find my passion for music, and to realize how important school is. I’m getting straight As now and plan to go to college and have a career in the music industry. The Adobe Youth Voices Academy gives us the skills for our future, and allows us to create with purpose. I wish my brother could see me now. Johnny Cuatianquiz, BGCP member, Redwood City

18


“Creating art allows us to turn what’s going on inside, and what we see around us, into something positive. Our videos and songs talk about anti-violence, being a role model in your community, and amidst all the negativity, how to be that positive spark.� Jose Saavedra, Former BGCP member, current staff member and mentor

School-Based

Partnerships Our six school-based partnerships in three local districts broaden BGCP’s impact. They provide kindergarten through 12th grade students on-site extended learning days filled with academic support, tutoring, mentorship and enrichment opportunities. Our parent education courses, and increased parental involvement, bolster a child’s educational success. Working together, these collaborations strengthen the families and communities we serve. The Serrato Family on How BGCP Impacts Family and Community When Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Barbara Boxer came to BGCP to see the program, Joe Biden asked my daughter, Angela, what she wanted to be when she grew up. She said, “I want to be the President.” And I thought, “This is my daughter. She thinks big; and I like it.” Angela says she wants to go to Notre Dame University. I tell her she can go wherever she wants if she works hard. And so I’m thankful BGCP is helping her. They help with her studies, dance, violin, music, art. She has mentors and tutors. The kids in our community get so many opportunities at BGCP. Maria Serrato

22


On January 16th our house burned to the ground. We got so much support from BGCP; it’s like a big family. Angela’s grades have improved a lot thanks to BGCP. And their parent education courses help me to be the best father I can be. We volunteer whenever we can because they give us so much. BGCP is bringing a lot of opportunity to the community and giving kids a chance. I think if there were more programs like BGCP, then all the kids in the United States could succeed. When we work together, we make a difference for the future. Ricardo Serrato

“I will be the first one in my whole entire family to go to University. So that will be such a dream come true. BGCP helps everybody in our neighborhood: our teachers, our principal, our staff, and the students and parents too.” Angela Serrato, 5th grader

“The extended learning day provides invaluable benefits to our teachers, children, and families. Through BGCP, students are provided a safe space, with caring mentors, in which they can continue learning and growing.” Tami Espinosa, Principal, Brentwood Academy

“When I meet with the students at BGCP’s Sobrato Summer Academy, so engaged and fired up about learning, my first thought is: ‘Every one of these children deserves a fair shot.’ We need to invest in that amazing untapped potential, for business, for struggling communities and for kids.” John Sobrato, Funder BGCP Sobrato Summer Academy
