BEYOND UNCERTAIN TIMES

In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, our communities are experiencing stress, anxiety, and uncertainty.


Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley is looking beyond the uncertainty and rising to the occasion. Despite the financial challenges faced by our organization due to COVID-19-related losses in revenue, we are more committed than ever to ensure Club staff, members, families, and communities have the resources and support they need to navigate through times of change.


YOUTH & FAMILIES FIRST

Our youth and families look to the Club as their second home, where they are provided individualized social emotional and academic support, enrichment activities that spark their curiosity and creativity, and the loving relationships that help them weather any life storm.


We knew right away that our families, and other essential worker families in our communities were struggling amidst the pandemic to find quality childcare.


In fact, during these uncertain times, our families are turning to us not just for childcare, but to support their ability to provide their children a sense of normalcy amidst the chaos, and to make sure youth have the appropriate resources so that they can continue to grow socially and academically during this time, and emerge during the time of recovery (which we know will come), even more resilient.


It is to meet that need and toward that vision of families made whole during recovery that we remain open for full-day programming at five sites for those that need us. Youth at these sites are provided a safe, nurturing environment, individualized support to access the virtual learning platforms required by their schools, emotional support by our trained staff, healthy meals and snacks, and so much more. We are working our hardest so that these youth emerge from this crisis that much stronger.

RISING STRONGER TOGETHER

Despite our resolve, BGCGCV also knows that, just as it doesn’t just take one person to make great futures happen for our youth, we need the support of our community today to ensure that we are here now, during the recovery period, and far into the future.


We have been here since 2003, and it is because of our supporters that we are well-placed to provide these services now. Although we are keeping our doors open, we are looking to our community to help sustain the effort.


Please join BGCGCV's Rising Stronger Together Campaign, a $3 Million fundraising drive running now until the end of the year. Thank you to our Board of Governors for sparking this campaign to raise $1M for NOW, $1M for RECOVERY and $1M to SECURE THE FUTURE.


Every year, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley serves more than 4,000 registered members and nearly 1,000 each day throughout the school year. We KNOW those numbers and more will return as our communities emerge from this pandemic. We KNOW that youth and families will require even more robust services to support them in recovery. Please join us in our fight to ensure that we will be there to provide them what they need far into the future.


We will ALL Rise Stronger TOGETHER!
