The mission of the Boys & Girls Club of the Peninsula is to guide and inspire the youth of our community to develop the attitudes and life skills they need to thrive.The Club provides places where young people aged 6-18 are welcome and can belong after school and all day during the summer. At each of the Club's seven sites located in the most challenged areas of Menlo Park, East Palo Alto and Redwood City, California, trained and caring staff and a cadre of volunteers work through a broad range of programs to guide and inspire youth to develop the attitudes and life skills they need to thrive. The Club is regarded as one of the most comprehensive youth development organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area.The Club's programs focus on Academics, Science and Technology, Social Education and Life Skills, Athletics and Fitness and the Arts. Many of these programs are offered in partnership with local schools and other community organizations. The Club's annual budget of $5.5 million this year is dependent on a balanced combination of support from individuals, foundations, corporations and public partners.About the Speaker: Peter Fortenbaugh is the Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula.
