Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica’s Jessica Rubecindo named Administrator of the Year!:

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica (BGCSM) is proud to announce that Jessica Rubecindo, Manager of Resource Development and Volunteer Management, has been named Administrator of the Year for the Pacific Region! Awarded by The Professional Association of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), Ms. Rubecindo was recognized during a special awards luncheon at the BGCA Pacific Regional Conference on Thursday, September 22nd at 12:45 PM held at the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Paradise Valley – Scottsdale (5401 Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale, AZ 85250).

"Jessica has truly been an invaluable asset to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica. Her award symbolizes not only her incredible leadership and administrative skills, but also the positive outcomes and impact she’s had on the kids. She’s a perfect example of someone who always strives to uphold our mission – to inspire all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as caring, responsible, and productive citizens."

–Michelle Arellano, BGCSM CEO

Ms. Rubecindo has been a Boys & Girls Club professional for the past 16 years. In 2013, Jessica joined the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica, where she began her career as Branch Director of the newest Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) community of Mar Vista Gardens. She did an incredible job increasing Club membership by 500%, and her dedication and commitment inspired a major donor to pledge ongoing support for years to come. Two years ago, Jessica wanted to create even greater impact through community work and volunteer outreach, and so the Club appointed Jessica to lead a Southern California Collaborative of Boys & Girls Clubs using VISTA volunteers to enhance their College Access programs. This successful program has included 3,100 volunteers serving 157,000 hours over the past three years.

We congratulate Jessica on this well-deserved honor! The Administrator of the Year award is awarded through a “competitive process” with “many applications submitted from all over the region.” Jessica Rubecindo’s “stood out by far” when it came to making a positive impact.
