March 2017


Main Club

On March 9, 2017, Program Aide Instructor, Rodrigo Castillo, from the Boys & Girls Club of Harbor City, engaged our young male club members to a "Passport to Manhood"  BGCA program lesson on "Fatherhood and the Family."
Passport to Manhood represents a targeted effort to engage young boys in discussion and activities that reinforce character, leadership, and positive behavior.
Great Job Rodrigo!  Thank you for you making a difference for the youth in our community. You truly make an impact.
