Organization Description:
BGCP’s mission is to guide and inspire the youth of our community to develop the attitudes and life skills they need to thrive. Every day after school and in the summer, children come to BGCP to gain a sense of belonging, have fun, and form positive relationships with caring mentors. In neighbor-hoods where two-thirds of youth drop out of high school, Club members learn the importance of education and become part of a community of learners, wanting and expecting to do well in school.

BGCP is the largest youth development organization in Silicon Valley, actively serving 1,400 youth in our clubhouses and school sites in East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Redwood City.

Program Description:
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula, in partnership with Ravenswood City School District, will facilitate a 1st – 8th grade summer program for students from Belle Haven Elementary School, and a 1st - 5th grade program at Brentwood Academy.
