Senior Accountant Jobs Vacancy in Boys Girls Clubs The Peninsula Menlo Park Jobs Details:
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula (BGCP) is the largest expanded learning time organization in Silicon Valley, serving 2,300 K - 12 students at 12 sites in East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Redwood City. In neighborhoods where ⅓ of the youth drop out of high school, BGCP members learn the importance of education and become part of a community of learners, wanting and expecting to succeed in school. In three clubhouses and nine school sites, we implement proven social and academic interventions that most impact a child’s achievement in school and in life. Our budget has grown to $10 million.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula has evolved significantly in recent years in response to our youth’s changing needs. When BGCP was founded 55 years ago, its focus was to keep young people safe and out of trouble. Low-income youth were able to attend the Club and find positive adult role models and participate in constructive activities. As long as they stayed out of serious trouble, they could turn 18, graduate from high school, and get an entry-level manufacturing job that could support a family. Today, those entry level, low-skilled jobs no longer exist. Everyone needs at least two years of post-secondary education or training to secure living wage employment.
In response to this change, we have evolved our mission to focus on school success. In addition to providing our students with the safe place, positive relationships, and sense of belonging that all children need, we are helping them develop the academic and life skills they need to succeed in school. Our after-school and summer programs are tightly integrated with the schools and are an extension of the learning day. We share resources, curriculum, data, and staff training with our school partners.
While BGCP is affiliated with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, we are an independent 501(c)(3) organization with our own Board of Directors and responsible for our own programs and funding.
