MORE THAN A CLUB...With the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic creating unprecedented challenges for our Club members and their families, BGCC remains steadfast in our efforts to stay connected and serve as a resource during these trying times.

Personalized attention makes a difference. During a routine wellness call, CC’s Little Village Boys & Girls Club staff member Luis Jimon learned that a Club family was struggling to make ends meet and desperately needed diapers. Jimon quickly reached out to fellow staff member, Guadalupe Delgado, and the two put together a plan to get the much-needed supplies to the Club family.

We are #AClubForLife

05/18/2020

With Club members throughout the city sheltering in place, BGCC launched a Virtual Club to bring the Club experience they’ve come to love and rely on into their homes. Online programming is connecting youth to the mentorship and engaging activities that remain the hallmark of Clubs and their out-of-school programming.

Recently, BGCC’s Virtual Club celebrated our city’s dedicated first responders.

“Our goal is to create meaningful programming that truly engages our members. We asked our Club members to think about their own life and remember a time when they had to help someone,” explains Vicki Lee, BGCC’s Chief Academic Officer. “This was why we featured first responders. They are a universal theme because every single person can connect to how an experience with a first responder, on various levels, has affected either their own life or someone they know.”
