BGCSF enthusiastically supports Vaccinate ALL 58 and strongly encourages COVID-19 vaccinations for everyone who is eligible and who is able! We are pleased to share the ways in which our community has come together in support of COVID-19 vaccinations since June, 2021. 

In February, BGCSF collaborated with UCSF on a vaccination clinic at our Don Fisher Clubhouse! At BGCSF, we work to support kids and families every day. We know how disruptive this pandemic has been for our community. Our organization enthusiastically encourages COVID-19 vaccinations for everyone who is eligible and who is able, seeing it as one of the most important ways that we can get beyond this pandemic.

Prior to the clinic, our teen community shared their perspective. Here is what three of our members had to say about why they chose to get vaccinated:

Johnathon, the 2022 Visitacion Valley Clubhouse Youth of the Year: 


Paulina, the 2022 Tenderloin Clubhouse Youth of the Year: 


Kelly, the 2022  Excelsior Clubhouse Youth of the Year: 

Before our teens teens spoke out,  many of our staff members shared their support. This included Clubhouse Directors across the City: 

In the middle of the summer, there was a Delta variant surge in San Francisco. Our Chief Operating Officer, Maxine Wilson, told her vaccination story and encouraged everyone to join her.


Our organization's support of VaccinateAll58 started in June when President, Rob Connolly, and Vice President of Club Services, Harold Love, endorsed the campaign. They shared why they got vaccinated and why they believe vaccinations are so important to the health of our communities.

Throughout this time, we have consistently shared our perspective on the importance of vaccinations and encouraged our community to stay informed by visiting www.vaccinateall58.com!

How BGCSF is Recreating the College Tour Experience

As an organization, we make it a priority to always meet our kids where they are. This year, we evolved our spring break college tour to do exactly that. After two tough years of experiencing the pandemic as a teen, we knew that back-to-back campus tours were not going to serve our youth in the best way possible.
