Project Description

Investor: Capital One, N. A. For more than 50 years, the Boys & Girls Club of Puerto Rico (BGCPR) has provided after school programs and services to children and youth ages 6 to 18. It offers participants a safe and creative place to develop and achieve their academic, personal and professional goals. The Project provided working and operational capital for the purpose of stabilization and expansion of the Boys & Girls Club of Puerto Rico’s clubs and activities in various locations on the island. Hurricanes Irma and MarĂ­a left the Puerto Rico community more vulnerable than ever making the services provided by BGCPR to the more than 15,000 children and youth annually indispensable and necessary.

Voices from the Community

Projects supported by this program obtain flexible capital to create more job opportunities for low-income people. This is essentially important to fund more projects that will get our people out of poverty and provide them with a high-quality job and a bright future for them and their families.
