BACR after-school programs promote the successful, holistic development of East Bay youth by providing opportunities for young people to acquire new skills, engage in creative learning, share their talents, and leave a positive mark in their communities. We collaborate with fellow community-based organizations and schools to prove high-quality after-school experiences for youth throughout the East Bay.
Bay Area Community Resources (BACR) is a regional nonprofit agency founded in 1976 whose mission is to promote healthy development among youth and families, encourage service and volunteerism, and build communities. BACR has provided after-school academic support, enrichment, and physical activity programming in Bay Area communities for more than 30 years. Our after school programs are designed and staffed to be safe, accessible, and effective for students (and families) who are struggling due to poverty, academic and social-emotional challenges, and other life circumstances—helping them overcome obstacles and become high achieving and joyful learners and by doing so, helping to reduce the achievement gap.
