Safe Summer Streets Career Fair: All are welcome to join us on Wednesday, July 25th at 6 PM for some teen career exploration! There will be professionals from a variety of fields such as law enforcement, journalism, healthcare, military, sports, EMS, mental health, business and the trades (just to name a few!) who will be sharing their stories and giving one-on-one advice to teens.

Stop by the Marr Clubhouse at 35 Deer Street in the Gym for a chance to learn all about the kinds of classes and programs you should be considering to prepare for your career. There will be a light dinner, raffles, prizes and tons of fun!

Contact Joel Figueroa at with any questions or to learn more.

Summer Program Kick-Off: Our Club members enjoyed a busy, fun-filled week as we got started with our 2018 Summer Programming. There’s so much to do here at BGCD!

Just this week members went on group field trips to TMX Boxing Academy, City Hall Plaza and on a Surfing/Fishing trip.

The Safe Summer Streets program, now in it’s 29th year, also allows our teen members the opportunity to take part in programming until 11:00 p.m. weekdays. Moving forward there will be a Basketball League, Open Swim, Career Fair, Spa Night, College Alumni Night Cruise, Cooking Classes with Milk Street Kitchen, Six Flags trip and more!
