With this in mind, BGCSF provides strong academic mentorship and enrichment activities that promote skill building, confidence, and a love of learning in a safe, supportive, and innovative environment. Every day at the Club, our skilled and caring staff provide the guidance and encouragement that young people need to progress grades annually and graduate from high school with a plan for the future.
Our members come to us with a broad range of academic skills, interests, learning styles, and perceptions about school, so we employ a similarly wide array of programs and strategies to support them. Key programs include Power Hour (homework support), Tutoring, STEM Enrichment, Literacy, Academic Mentoring, College Prep, and Transition Support.
BGCSF takes advantage of its many strong school relationships, including four school-based Clubs, partnerships with standout academic nonprofits, free professional and volunteer tutors, college scholarships, academic field trips, and more, helping our youth members achieve and succeed academically.
