BGCCF Update | April 24, 2020
Even with our Blue doors Closed, we make it easy for our Club members to continue connecting with the staff and programming they love! Our Club Staff is proud to offer three specific outlets for our members - and others - to access our creative and uplifting programming:

In our Cyber Clubhouse, children find a new daily schedule of educational activities and fun videos. Monday, Mr. Nicco challenged Club members to beat him in the "Push Up Challenge" and Ms. Connie demonstrated how to make the best paper airplane out of a straw and paper. Learn More >>

In Cyber Clubhouse Live, our staff interact with Club members in real time, offering homework help, motivational messages, arts projects and supportive conversation.

Our Blue Door TV, produced in concert with Orange TV, is a variety show in the tradition of PBS' classic "Zoom." Celebrity guest readers share their favorite children's books, and we share our favorite Cyber Clubhouse videos from throughout the week. Check out the most recent episode, in which Ms. Madison makes a strawberry smoothie, Ms. Ellie teaches the American Sign Language alphabet, and Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings reads "Pete the Cat." Watch Here >>
We are delighted to announce three outstanding additions to our Board of Directors! Steve Forte, Vice President of JetBlue University, oversees the company's award-winning training programs, leading teams in Orlando, Salt Lake City and New York. Ray DiSanza retired in 2017 from the Charles Schwab Corp., Inc after 19 years with the firm. He is a former Senior Vice President of Operations, and the Location Leader of the operations center in Orlando. Kelli Addison is an Associate with Schenkelshultz Architecture and is part of the design team of the Jacqueline Bradley & Clarence Otis Family Branch. Welcome, Steve, Ray and Kelli!
