Our Programs

2020 brought so many changes and challenges that were all but impossible to foresee. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Club redesigned its programs, rapidly transitioning from face-to-face to online activities. Thanks to these efforts, we have been able to stay connected to our children and youth between the ages 6-18, through our 5 pillars:

Nutrition

Healthy Youth

A weekly nutritional class is held, currently online, where children and youth learn about the importance of eating healthy and staying active.

One-on-one online consultations are also available for them to help improve their eating habits.

Garden At Home

With this program, we are helping families in Los Cabos grow healthy, fresh and organic food in their own home.

Our Club donates the seeds and materials for them to start, as well as advice and follow-up sessions with our garden manager Vanessa.

Drawing Classes

Local artist, Joaquin Pineda, is the talented teacher behind our new, currently online, drawing workshop. An excellent opportunity that has taught our beneficiaries to learn drawing from scratch: lines, strokes, figures, and techniques. Their progress has been incredible!

Art Workshops

Laura Rodriguez, creative Coach, has agreed to become a Club ambassador! She started in 2020 offering our children a monthly online art workshop, where they have the opportunity to get creative and portray their hopes and dreams.

Dance

Dance helps us express ourselves, liberate ourselves, activate ourselves. Dance creates discipline. The benefits are many, and at BGCBCS we are happy to host an online dance workshop for our members.

This workshop started in 2021, with the help of a volunteer dance teacher.

Talent Show

Film producer Jay Pickens generously offered his professional recording studio to record our first Talent Show! 

Children and youth from 6 to 18 years old were invited to show us their talent for an online live event where we had dancing, singing and gymnastics.

Education

iWRITE

This successful program, developed by iWRITE Literacy Organization in Houston, TX, is focused on strengthening creativity, confidence and self-esteem through writing.

“i” The Guy is the main cartoon character found inside iWRITE’s writing journal curriculum, and all our beneficiaries have loved him as a mentor.

English Classes

In 2020, we started offering our children, youth and their parents a 4 month online English course titled: Conversational Basics.

This program aspires to give them the confidence to speak in English, a much needed skill in our community.

Mathematics

We were so excited to welcome the initiative of one of our members who decided to volunteer as a math tutor for his peers. 

He started offering a weekly session to solve any doubts other members had in this subject. 

Human Development

Agents of Change

Lead by volunteer coaches, this program guides our youth into the development of a social change project. They form teams and collaborate on a social issue in their community that they would like to address.

Social change projects to date have focused on anti-bullying, care and compassion for the elderly, teen pregnancy and violence against women.

This year our Agents of Change are working online to help animals in a street situation. Click here to take a look at the Facebook page they created to raise awareness.

YouthBiz

YouthBiz (developed by Young Americans Center for Financial Education in Denver, CO) is a unique and successful program designed to teach the youth about Entrepreneurship and how to turn their dream and passion into a successful business.

During our 2020 online edition, our youth lived a true business design experience. The winning team created a sanitizing box to facilitate the disinfection of mobile objects that we usually carry with us.

Sports

Friendship Race

The Friendship Race is held annually and inspires healthy competition among the youth. Medals are awarded to different age groups ranging from 10-18 years old.

In February 2020, before the pandemic, more than 300 children and youth participated in this 2K & 4K.

Stay Active!

We are excited to welcome a volunteer and local P.E. teacher, Profe Mau, to the Club! Profe Mau shares his fun and creative sports and physical education online classes with our members.
