Thank you to all of our supporters for giving us ‘Moments Like This’
“It’s hard to believe it’s only been a year since we learned how to navigate virtual school and a pandemic. We learned more than we ever could have imagined. Consistent communication with parents and teachers helped us get our members through the adventure of online learning.
Our 5th anniversary at the Live Oak Clubhouse passed quietly in March. We also marked our 5th year with Pleasure Point Surf Club, which takes an average of 30 youth per week out in the ocean. The all-volunteer coaching staff teaches the youth ocean conservation, wilderness first aid, ocean safety, rescue techniques, and how to surf. Our surf club was one of the few youth sports that did not shut down because of the pandemic.
After such a strenuous year, we made sure to give our members a summer filled with moments to remember. We had activities such as scavenger hunts, color runs, and water balloons, along with our Summer Brain Gain Program. In addition to our summer programming, we offered UPS Road Code to our teen center members this year. This program focuses on different drivers’ safety principles, from basic instruction to the consequences of risky behaviors such as talking on cell phones, texting, or drinking while driving. The program’s state-of-the-art virtual driving simulation challenges teens’ safe driving knowledge by using virtual reality headsets featuring interactive animation, voice commands, and various driving environments.
This past September, in partnership with Community Bike Collective and volunteers from Shoreline Middle School, we were able to add a Mountain Bike Club. Community Bike Collective provides the equipment for youth who do not have their own. The bike club rides out every other Wednesday and once a month on Saturdays to allow more members to participate.”
