As the first in her family to go to college, Maria Gomez was thrilled to receive offers from 8 universities including UCLA and UC Berkeley before ultimately choosing her dream school of UCLA on a full-ride scholarship. She plans to major in biology and join the pre-med track.

Maria joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of the L.A. Harbor College Bound program at our Wilmington Club for support in getting through her college and financial aid applications. We are beyond proud of all that she has accomplished!

Alfredo Chavez of our Wilmington Club has participated in our College Bound program since middle school. He is an incredibly focused student who powers through everything he faces, despite his parents being forced to live far away from him for work.

As the first in his family to go to college, Alfredo will attend UC Berkeley to study engineering.


This has been an exciting year for Melanie Fontelera of our San Pedro Club. Not only was she selected as BGCLAH Youth of the Year, but she also won the title of L.A. County Youth of the Year and went on to compete at the California Youth of the Year competition in Sacramento.

After being accepted by 10 universities, Melanie selected the University of La Verne to prepare to become a lawyer.


After facing numerous hurdles this school year including a house fire burning many of his belongings, Jesse Perez was not sure about applying to college despite being a good student.

Our College Bound program gave Jesse the motivation he needed and our San Pedro Club staff pushed him to persevere. Jesse will attend CSU Northridge in the Fall with scholarships.
