Funding from the Oceanside Community Foundation will support the Club in implementing their Youth for Unity program, which also includes hosting Racial and Social Justice Youth Symposiums in the upcoming year.
BGCO's Youth for Unity program provides youth with the groundwork that will help them better understand and appreciate diversity and combat prejudice, bigotry and discrimination. This amazing program provides a comprehensive, broad-based set of activities to help members appreciate themselves as unique individuals; understand the community's diversity; recognize bias; and take personal leadership in confronting bias.
We are at a pivotal moment in this country's history and want our youth to have the tools they need to navigate these complicated issues. The goal of Youth for Unity is to help them process these events and empower them to use their voices to confront bias and discrimination in their community," said Jodi Diamond, CEO. We continue to uphold our mission: To inspire, develop and enrich young people to reach their fullest potential as confident, responsible, caring members of society.
Our purpose is to meet emerging needs by encouraging and increasing responsible and effective philanthropy for all who live, work and play in Oceanside; build an Oceanside community endowment to provide funding annually to Oceanside organizations and causes; and give Oceanside community members a vehicle for legacy planning and gifts that will benefit Oceanside, now and forever.
