For over 100 years, Union League Boys & Girls Clubs have been serving youth in neighborhoods with the highest hardship index in Chicago; providing quality programming centered on academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. On Tuesday, Dec. 7th, nearly 30 elementary school students grades 1st to 8th from three Acero Schools: PFC Omar E. Torres and SPC Daniel Zizumbo Elementary schools, and the Major Hector P. Garcia MD High School joined Acero CEO Richard L. Rodriguez, Garcia High School Principal Lindsay Ahlgren-Blythe, Torres Elementary Principal Adam Sparks, Zizumbo Elementary Principal Chris Allen and Union League Boys & Girls Clubs Trustee Celine Fitzgerald to officially cut-the-ribbon commemorating the three new after-school Union League Boys & Girls Clubs opening there. Following remarks, guests were invited to tour the Clubs. Today, Union League Boys & Girls Clubs serve over 15,000 youth members at 19 well-equipped and professionally staffed inner-city Clubs, such as those at the Acero Schools, that bring effective after-school programming to youth in the Archer Heights, Humboldt Park, Pilsen, West Town, Bucktown, South Lawndale and Englewood communities as well as youth in the Juvenile Detention Center and at an overnight camp in Kenosha County Wisconsin.
