Future Grads is the newest program offered by the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula (BGCP), and is modeled after the Bright Prospect program in Pomona, CA—which has shown strong results since 2002.
While our program includes counseling on how to apply, complete financial aid forms and choose the right college, we also develop our students’ social and emotional skills, including how to ask for help, access resources, build support networks and maintain confidence. Future Grads supports its students to and through college graduation.
Future Grads is open to any student at partner high schools. Most begin after 9th grade in our one-week Summer Academy, where students build relationship and begin to develop a deep commitment to graduating college. During the school year, Future Grads staff lead monthly leadership workshops and lunch meetings on-campus. In 2016-2017, we will be partnering with Woodside, Sequoia and EPAA.
