Mentoring youth, and serving families, in Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, Nipomo, Oceano, Pismo Beach, and Shell Beach.
Thank you. Those are two words you’ll keep hearing over and over. Because no matter how challenging the world is for young people today, there’s nothing they can’t do when they have you.
Thanks to your commitment to kids at Boys & Girls Clubs of South San Luis Obispo County this past year. Club kids in South SLO had access to a safe and supportive community that’s opening a world or opportunity:
· Hundreds of South SLO kids had a safe place to go before and after school receive meals, homework help, and enrichment classes.
· Over a hundred South SLO kids had a fun, safe and engaging school break and summer camp experience including field trips, positive mentors, and life-changing experiences.
· 88% of Club kids say they can stand up for what’s right, even if their friends disagree.
Now that’s something to celebrate.
While the world feels full of problems, solutions can be found inside Club walls every day — remarkable Club kids like Erika whose experiences at the Club are changing their futures and will positively impact the future for us all.
“My Club mentor showed me something I had been missing my entire life: individual attention. Interest in me as a person. The kind of compassion that says, ‘I don’t know you, but I still love you and care for you.” — Erika, Club kid
Because of you, there’s nothing this next generation can’t do.
