Alameda Boys & Girls Club provides a safe place for children to be after school and over holidays. Great futures start HERE.
The big picture:
Today, the closing bell will ring in Alameda schools and roughly 10,000 students will leave the school grounds.
Many will go it alone - and will enter the most dangerous time of the day for children. Research indicates that youth-related crime triples between 3PM and 8PM every weekday. National statistics, and daily headlines, make it clear that unsupervised children are at greater risk in the after-school hours.
Our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
We currently serve youth ages 6 - 18. We need your help please.
