The EXCEL program at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson (BGCT) is designed to inspire Club teens to pursue academic excellence in preparation for college, vocational school, or the military by providing cash incentives for outstanding academic performance in high school.
Immediate cash awards, plus a cash deposit to be withdrawn upon high school graduation, will be provided to students who achieve a GPA of 3.0+ as outlined below. In addition, gift certificates will be awarded to any student who improves his/her GPA over the previous quarter.
EXCEL will commence with the Fall 2016 school year at all six BGCT Clubs.
Any high school student (Grades 9-12) who is a Club member-in-good-standing is eligible to participate. Students participating in the program must be a registered Club member during the academic year in which the cash award is made.
Grade reports must be submitted to the Vice President of Program Operations by the Youth Program Director within two weeks of quarterly grades being posted.
Cash awards will be made to the student within 10 business days of receipt of the student’s grade report to the Administration Office.
BGCT will provide the following incentives (one per student only):
