Boys Girls JC Anna-37

“I’d be a totally different person if I didn’t go to the Club. I learned most-about-everything through the Boys & Girls Club.”

JC is a confident young man who knows where he’s going and how to get there, thanks to the Club staff’s mentoring and guidance. JC’s goal is to play for Ventura College’s Men’s Basketball team then transfer to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where he will pay on the Men’s Mustang basketball team and pursue a degree in architecture. Being drafted by the NBA is a goal, too. “Anything can happen,” says JC, sharing his favorite quote. Anything, like playing in the NBA and being an architect. A Club member for nine years, JC has been involved with the Club’s basketball league, Triple Play and Keystone programs, which offered up opportunities for him to take initiative and be a leader.
