TESTIMONIALS

Marcos Alvaro_Linked IN

For me, UBGC wasn’t a place to go because I had nowhere else to go. I knew a lot of kids in my neighborhood. My parents also worked very hard to provide me with a good life. The problem was, that a lot of the kids in the neighborhood back then were getting into trouble; where I was more into school and sports. The Club provided me with a playground, literally. I was able to go and be a kid without any worries. It was also a place where my parents knew I would be OK. I didn’t have to worry about getting jumped, or feeling pressure of being in a gang… I only had to worry about being a kid. That, for me, meant everything!
