BGCV is proud to introduce you to our newest alumni members. Many of the graduates have been BGCV members since 1st grade. We will miss seeing them daily, but love having them work at the Club this summer. We are so proud of all of our graduates and can't wait to watch them change the world!
Summer Campaign Update
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Venice recently embarked on a campaign to raise money for our summer program.
After the Wise-Vettese Family Foundation challenged supporters to match their $25,000 gift, we are pleased to announce donors have exceeded that goal. Together, we have raised over $50,000 to date. Thanks to all of the amazing donations we have received, our members were able to go on whale watching trips, beautiful hikes, spend the day at the beach, take self defense courses and so much more. The campaign is still going, and we need your donations now more than ever! Donate today at
Barry's Boot Camp Gets BGCV Teens in Shape
Boys & Girls Clubs of Venice teens just completed an intense six weeks of fitness training at Barry's Boot Camp in Venice. Barry's provided 12 free classes to 20 of our teen members, along with a post-workout smoothie, and some awesome Barry's merchandise so that the teens looked stylish while working out. Barry's has offered to continue the classes in the fall! Every teen loved participating in the Barry's classes and their new mile times will blow you away!
A very special thank you to Donald, our incredible trainer, who motivated and inspired the teens each class!
