Together We Rise Fundraiser - Barry's Boot Camp in your home
Want to ring in 2021 with a great workout that also supports local SF youth? BGCSF's NextGen Leadership Council invites you to feel the magic of the signature Barry's Bootcamp Red Room from the comfort of your own living room. Join us for a work(out), with Kelly Whittaker, a best in class instructor, as she guides us through an at-home version of the Best Workout in the World.
Kelly ripped off her blazer and waved “Adios!” to the corporate world in order to work at Barry’s full time, starting in June 2014.
She believes that everyone has an inner athlete just waiting to be unleashed. These days, if you want to catch her, you’d better run. When she's not teaching or taking class at Barry’s, she is likely to be doing a marathon — or at least jogging down the Esplanade. Zoom! Find her on IG @kjw227
All proceeds from this virtual class will support BGCSF's Together We Rise | Emerge Strong Campaign.
Thank you so much to our NextGen virtual Barry's event co-chairs, Meeri Shin & Lucas Hahn!

TOGETHER WE RISE | EMERGE STRONG is our fall and yearend fundraising drive that allows us to immediately fund current programs and to plan and make critical decisions for the months ahead -- one less uncertainty amidst so much that is unclear.
These are extraordinarily challenging times for everyone, but now more than ever, the Club is a beacon of hope for kids and families. Please join us in standing with our kids and families, and make a contribution today.
As we approach fall, with no signs of the health crisis abating, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco remains resolute in standing shoulder to shoulder with our youth and families. The disproportionate impact of this pandemic on people of color shines a light on the complex, often multi-generational social and racial inequity that our families face.
Starting the first day of distance learning for the new school year on August 17th, BGCSF opened its doors at ten locations allowing young people—with a focus on the most vulnerable youth—to access the Clubs. Our team continues their frontline service for our youth, focused on Academic Support for students doing distance learning, with a secondary emphasis on safe social engagement, ensuring daily nutrition and wellness activities, and providing regular opportunities for recreation.
Throughout the pandemic, BGCSF has held the health and safety of our youth and staff at the forefront of all our decision making. To stay safe, the number of youth served each day at the Club is limited, the Clubs effectively manage all necessary cleaning supplies and PPE and invest time and resources in staff training. As long as we feel that BGCSF can function safely, the doors of the Clubs will remain open to the youth in our community who need us the most.
