When you support the Boys & Girls Club, you're helping kids learn and grow so they can do better in school and in life. I'd like to tell you about one girl in particular who has made amazing progress during her time at the Club, thanks to support from generous donors like you.
Cecilia is an 8th grader at the Boys & Girls Club’s Oak View Branch. When she first started coming to the Club last summer, she was reading at a 2nd grade level. That’s 6 grades behind! Club staff worked with her in our summer reading program and Cecilia jumped ahead 2 grade levels in just 8 weeks. We’ve continued to work with her throughout the school year. Now, in the spring semester, she’s reading at a 7th grade level! We couldn’t be more proud of her! She still has a little ways to go to get to grade level. So, we’re continuing to work with her. She is trying hard and we hope to get her up to grade level by the end of the school year. Then, she’ll be prepared for success in high school.
Thanks to your generous support for the Boys & Girls Club's programs, kids like Cecilia are discovering the great things they can achieve. Thank you for helping the Boys & Girls Club make a difference to the kids who need us most!
