Orlando is a Vallejo native raising his own children and grandchildren in this thriving community. The Boys and Girls Empowerment Group (BGEG) started out with a basketball tournament 25 years ago. It filled a void to provide no to low-income youth access to the recreational activities within their communities. This is a way for him to give back to all families in the form of community led events and programs including but not limited to after school care, youth activities, food drives and more!
Our staff at BGEG have become a safe haven for children and their families, expanding our services and programs that can now be utilized by all ages. We use a family-based model to empower young people to become wise, compassionate and powerful leaders needed to transform Vallejo.
