More information at CatholicCharitiesSF.org/programtours The primary goal of Canal Family Support’s Kids Club is to increase literacy and reading comprehension in order to close the educational achievement gap between high-achieving students and those who are falling behind. Centrally located at the Albert J. Boro Community Center at Pickleweed Park, Kids Club is the only community-based after-school program for children of elementary school age located in the Canal neighborhood. Kids Club provides targeted reading intervention, educational assistance and enrichment activities that support the cultural, physical, social and cognitive development of 120 at-risk youth in grades 1-5.
