We are so proud!!
Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley Success Story:
I’m a proud Club kid who attended from 2005-2013. Money was always tight at home which prevented me from participating on sports teams. I fell in love with the Club because of their affordable $10 soccer league. While it cost $10, to me it felt like I had joined an elite program, one that upon entering the gym to play my games would make me feel as if I was walking into a World Cup final. I became involved in everything the Club had to offer from then on, fully immersing myself in the vast opportunities. I eventually ran for the title of Youth of the Year to represent the Club that had become my second home. I advanced on through county, state, and regional levels, ultimately ending my journey at the national level. I traveled for a year as a national spokesperson for BGCA. I was awarded scholarships that allowed me to graduate from UC Irvine debt free in June 2018 with a Major in Political Science and Minor in Criminology, Law, and Society. I am currently working for the Club as their Athletic Director and am enjoying making those same relationships with members that made coming to the Club each day after school so exciting and enriching. Boys & Girls Club blood runs through my veins back then, now, and always.
