Our contract with Boys and Girls Club of Baja California Sur (BGC) enables us to support after school and weekend programs for young people ages 8-19.
BGC was formerly Gente Joven por un Cambrio. Gente Joven was recently awarded the opportunity to transition to the very first Boys and Girls Club in Baja California Sur.
The BGC programs are taught by coaches and volunteers. The programs are growing and currently include nutrition education, organic gardening, sports, entrepreneurship and leadership. Soon to be added are art classes including dance, painting and music. Also, BGC intends to add technical education including computer programming. All of the programs focus on human development and are designed to give the youth confidence and the ability to become agents of change for their community.
Currently Boys and Girls Club is operating out of a small donated building in the Puerto Los Cabos community of La Playita. The plan is to expand to several locations throughout southern Baja including San Jose, Cabo, La Paz and Todos Santos.
