Participants will also receive information about ways to support families as they prepare to re-enter the workforce. Highlights from Boys Camp and Girls Clubs of Central Florida (BGCCF) After School Zone Virtual Programming will be shared. These include using innovative live and virtual programming to support physical and social-emotional wellness and learning.
