BGCSF Fall Programming

FALL PROGRAMMING UPDATE

Join us this fall!

The Club looks forward to opening for the school year to support our community's effort to serve young people. We eagerly await the new health order for San Francisco, as we are committed to continuing to provide essential support and programming to San Francisco youth and families during this challenging COVID-19 crisis.

Stay tuned for more info!


SUMMER PROGRAMMING INFORMATION

This summer, our Clubhouses will be open to provide high-quality daily programming and food service (lunch and snack). BGCSF has very limited number of spots this summer due to the guidance of the public health order. Clubs will run two multi-week sessions (June 15 to July 10 and July 13 to July 31). The number of youth we can accept into each session is very limited and daily attendance is required.

In addition to our in-Club services, we will continue to offer daily virtual programming through BGCSF's Virtual Clubhouse for members ages six to 18. These services are being offered by our skilled and caring staff and follow strict guidelines for online safety.

Our number one priority is, and will continue to be, the safety of the youth we serve. For in-Club services, we are strictly adhering to city and county public health guidelines for youth services and summer camps. (Please see our COVID-19 Safety Protocols.) Having said that, we all must acknowledge that there is a risk of exposure to the coronavirus and therefore parents/guardians will be required to complete a waiver acknowledging that they understand this. Our safety expectations are also in place for our virtual programming. In order to receive in-Club or virtual programming, there are several agreements you will need to complete.

Please note that there will be no visitors to the Clubs this summer. Parents/Guardians are required to remain outside the Club for pick-up and drop off.

For information about in-Club programming, please contact your local Clubhouse.

BGCSF VIRTUAL PROGRAMMING INFORMATION

Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco is thrilled to officially launch the BGCSF Virtual Clubhouse!

Starting just two days after the Mayor of San Francisco ordered a shelter in place, BGCSF piloted the first of its virtual Club programs at the Excelsior Clubhouse. Within a few days, multiple Clubhouses and Camp Mendocino were actively serving youth ages six to 18. Simultaneously, BGCSF's program team began building out a virtual learning platform on Google Classroom and Google Meets that formally launched last week.

From homework help to tutoring, art instruction, dance classes, leadership programs for middle schoolers and high schoolers, college prep, and job readiness programs, BGCSF's Virtual Clubhouse has some great programs that are engaging youth.


The Google Classroom Platform

Families may already be familiar with Google Classroom since SFUSD and other private schools are using the platform to connect with students as well. While many of us are using Google Classroom, BGCSF will use the term Virtual Classroom to refer to this platform moving forward.

What to Expect from the BGCSF Virtual Clubhouse
The Virtual Clubhouse is a place for youth to:
  • Connect with our skilled and caring staff
  • Connect with other Clubhouse members
  • Experience live & pre-recorded programming including sports & fitness, fine arts, dance, academics, community engagement & activism, leadership development, and more!
  • Receive homework help and tutoring support from talented professionals
  • Find age-appropriate programming designed for elementary, middle, and high school members
  • Have fun!
