“Whether it was being robbed and attacked on the train or riding my bike two to three miles to get to and from the Club, these obstacles have not kept me from coming to what I call my second home. When my parents separated, the staff at the Club was there for me; supporting, caring and giving me advice. Without the staff, I could have run away or handled that situation much worse. Several of the staff has been consistent role models in my life since the first step I took into the Club.”
– Vicente, General Wood Club member and the Club’s 2010 Youth of the Year.
