Now in his fifth year at the Club, Mr. Roger is the Site Director at our San Marcos Elementary School extension site. He says he feels fortunate to have a job that he loves and looks forward to coming to work every day. Citing fifth grade promotion as one of his favorite memories, Mr. Roger loves to see the development of his members each year. He and his staff aim to create a community feel at their site, emphasizing the importance of providing supportive relationships and making connections with the kids they serve. "It wasn't until [my first year as Site Director] that I finally realized that I have an impact on our members' lives, whether it's a small one or a significant one." To top off the community environment, Mr. Roger recognizes that the support that comes from parents and school administration plays an integral role in helping his Club site thrive.
Our site at San Marcos Elementary School is operated through a partnership with San Marcos Unified School District, as part of the After School Safety and Education (ASES) Program. Each day, members are provided with a variety of after school programs and activities, homework help, and a hot meal free of cost. The site prides itself in providing kids with a wide range of activities and specialty clubs, developed by members of the staff, including arts and crafts, sports, STEM-related programming, and more!
