Galileo Partners with Boys & Girls Club of the Peninsula

Local B Corp Supports BGCP Educational Programs at Six Sites.

Oakland, CA, June 11, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Through a growing partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs
of the Peninsula (BGCP), Galileo Learning continues to prioritize making high-caliber educational
programs accessible to underserved kids.

On June 9th, Galileo staff will train 100 BGCP educators to deliver the wildly successful Space Explorers
program, developed by the in-house Galileo curriculum team. BGCP will deliver these innovative lessons
to approximately 1,300 BGCP students at six sites over five weeks this summer.

This marks the fourth consecutive year Galileo and BGCP have joined forces. Both teams are thrilled
with past outcomes and excited for the upcoming summer. "Because of this wonderful partnership [with
Galileo],” says Zareen Kasad, director of BGCP's K-8 programs and training, "we are able to engage
youth with high quality projects that expose them to the innovation culture of Silicon Valley and help
them develop the academic mindsets they need to be successful in college and career."
