Galileo Partners with Boys & Girls Club of the Peninsula.

Oakland, CA, June 11, 2018 --( Through a growing partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula (BGCP), Galileo Learning continues to prioritize making high-caliber educational programs accessible to underserved kids.

On June 9th, Galileo staff will train 100 BGCP educators to deliver the wildly successful Space Explorers program, developed by the in-house Galileo curriculum team. BGCP will deliver these innovative lessons to approximately 1,300 BGCP students at six sites over five weeks this summer.

This marks the fourth consecutive year Galileo and BGCP have joined forces. Both teams are thrilled with past outcomes and excited for the upcoming summer. "Because of this wonderful partnership [with Galileo]," says Zareen Kasad, director of BGCP's K-8 programs and training, "we are able to engage youth with high quality projects that expose them to the innovation culture of Silicon Valley and help them develop the academic mindsets they need to be successful in college and career."
