Brothers Julian and Daniel Vega are students at Indio high school. They are also alumni of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley (BGCCV) Indio clubhouse, who attended various after-school activities and programs that encouraged social development through health and physical awareness; empowerment through education discipline; skill advancement in computer technology and repair; as well as character growth through leadership, community service, and personal goals.

What Julian and Daniel took away from the various mentoring BGCCV programs, including STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education classes, greatly contributed towards their evolution as caring human beings. They were then able to apply their newly learned “how to solve real world community issues” and acquired computer training to help others.

Case in point: A family friend who comes from a low-income situation recently began taking courses at an adult school and needed a computer.
