Additional Information:

As the area's largest at-risk youth extended learning time organization, we work with parents, community partners and schools to serve 1,800 kindergarteners through twelfth graders in East Palo Alto, Redwood City and eastern Menlo Park. In three clubhouses and six school sites, we implement proven social and academic interventions that most impact a child's achievement in school and in life. We are closing the achievement gap. In neighborhoods where more than 1/3 of young people drop out of high school, 90 percent of BGCP school site members graduate from high school with a plan for college or career.
