Boys & Girls Clubs of Silicon Valley (BGCSV) announces a new partnership with Ross Stores, Inc., to support the ClubÕs Power Hour program, a daily afterschool homework assistance and tutoring program for youth, ages 6 to 18.
ÒThe generous support from Ross Stores shows their dedication to supporting academic success for youth in our community and communities nationwide,Ó said Dana Fraticelli, President and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Silicon Valley. ÒWe know that regular participation in out-of-school educational programs, like Power Hour, can help address the high school dropout crisis and bridge both the opportunity and achievement gap for our youth.Ó
Ross has granted Boys & Girls Clubs of Silicon Valley $20,000 to fulfill this effort and keep kids on the right track. Additionally, local Ross store employees will have an opportunity to volunteer their time at BGCSV.
