Messages From Leadership

“I have joined with an enthusiastic group of community leaders to re-introduce the ’new’ Boys & Girls Club of Greater Stockton to the Community. I have great pride in being allowed the opportunity to be part of an organization that will be doing great things for our youth and making the City of Stockton a great place for our youth. I firmly believe in our motto, ‘Great Futures Start Here.’ Thank you for supporting our efforts.”

Alan Korsgaden
Advisory Council Chair
Boys & Girls Club of Greater Stockton

"I am personally elated to have the opportunity to help bring Boys & Girls Clubs back to my home community. I was fortunate to have been a member of the Stockton Boys Club in 1966, which had a tremendous impact on my life. Having the opportunity to serve as the Executive Director of the Stockton Club from 1988 - 1998 remains a highlight in my career. The “Return of the Club” provides the opportunity for countless youth to receive the positive impact of being a Club kid, preparing them for ‘Great Futures.’"
