Give Every Child A Chance


Asap Program

The purpose of the ASAP Program is to provide a safe, structured, fun after school program to students in elementary school.

Mentor/tutoring is the matching of a student receiving one or more below average grades with a volunteer.

Health Education

Since 2007, GECAC has incorporated health education as a fundamental piece within all 13 of our After School Advantage Program (ASAP) sites.

Before High School Program

The main purpose of BHS is to provide a safe, educational, structured, and fun before school program to students in High School.

Mission Statement

We believe every child should be given a chance to be successful. We further believe that community volunteers; working as academic mentors and tutors, together with the school districts will provide assistance to children struggling in school the opportunity to improve academically and become successful lifelong learners. It is our mission to give every child a chance!

Volunteer Statement

A student that is challenged in school will be challenged in life.  By volunteering to mentor/tutor a child to read, write, and learn you can discover your power with just one hour.  Volunteer and change a life. Your Time – Their Future!

Independent Research and Evaluation

San Joaquin Community Data Co-Op is an independent research and evaluation organization commissioned by Give Every Child A Chance (GECAC) to evaluate program performance.  Research findings indicate that GECAC is producing outcomes for children and youth consistent with programs regarded as “best practice” within the after school education field.
