Committed to helping youth excel academically and graduate from high school, Ross Stores is a national sponsor of Boys & Girls Clubs of America's Power Hour, an interactive after-school homework assistance program for members, ages 6 to 18. This year, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carson was selected to receive a generous donation of $20,000 to implement the Ross Foundation Power Hour Grant.
Ross Stores Power Hour provides Club professionals with the strategies, activities, resources and information to create an engaging homework help and tutoring program that encourages Club members at every age to become self-directed learners.
"I like being able to do my homework at BGCC because the staff are very helpful," shared 4th grader Kyla. Like Kyla, many BGCC members have utilized the resources provided by BGCC through Ross Power Hour and have been able to improve their grades and develop a love for learning.
