THANK YOU MAUREEN!!!
Today (June 30th), marks the last day at The Club for our CEO Maureen Price. Maureen is retiring from her CEO duties and starting a new adventure. We are so grateful for Maureen's service to The Club and kids in the community over the last 5 years. Her tireless efforts and dedication has led to #GreatFutures for BGCSAC, including opening a new Club in Juvenile Hall, starting our #PGESummerJobs Program, working with Leadership Sacramento on the Raley Teen Center Club remix, a new program site in Natomas, enhancing program and grant opportunities, and building The Club's capacity.
