They have done so by promoting the healthy development of individuals, families and communities through direct services, volunteerism, and partnering with the San Francisco Bay Area. The BACR family is a tight knit group, made up of passionate and creative individuals who have devoted themselves to the betterment of the lives of the children we serve. This blog was created to appreciate and showcase the achievements of our outstanding staff and their programs.

The BACR - EPIC After School Program would like to share some of the moments from this past school year, our young scholars embarked on an
overnight excursion to Point Pinole
The students went on an expedition and hike.
The students enjoyed soccer and football during the day, s'mores around the campfire at night--an immensely enriching experience for them. A first-time experience for most of them, an awesome memory. This was possible with the help of our wonderful ASP team, Ms. Miladi, Mr. Miguel, Mr. Will  & Ms. Marlin.

Our cooking class provides the students with fresh made food at least twice a month. Those students that attend the cooking class have the opportunity to prep and cook the meals for that day. This is such a great blessing and opportunity for our youth.

The EPIC community believes that the greatest teacher is the life of the teacher.

We consider learning as active, collaborative, meaningful, supports mastery, and expands horizons for all stake-holders.

Active learning stimulates learners’ innate curiosity and enhances their critical thinking skills. Collaborative learning occurs when learners are dependent on the contributions of their team and hold one another account-able. Meaningful learning happens when students are intrinsically motivated and becomes relevant to personal interests. Learning that sup-ports mastery includes opportunities to learn new skills and practice a full sequence of these skills. When we take students beyond their current experiences and introduce them to people and places they may have never encountered, we expand their horizons.

Our commitment to these methods guarantee quality in the areas of engagement, interaction, academic climate,

and a safe and supportive environment for students and staff.
