The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego is proud to recognize the achievements of staff who excel in their roles and go above and beyond expectations. Employees who are engaged, take initiative and are committed to superior work are recognized as Rock Stars.
Joshua Quichocho from the Clairemont Branch has consistently demonstrated a high level of commitment and dedication to the organization and is the epitome of a youth development professional. Joshua created specialized curriculum to meet the specific needs of his Club K members and meets regularly with teachers in the Clairemont community to discuss afterschool programming services. He’s known to attend school assemblies and is very involved in the academic success of his members.
In addition to Club K, Joshua spearheaded a fashion club called, “Recycled Couture” with middle school members to incorporate art into STEM. Members learned fashion design and created wardrobe using recycled materials. The designs were so impressive members won 1st Place at the San Diego STEAM Makers Festival at the Del Mar Fairgrounds.
Joshua has also been instrumental in securing funds for Clairemont Branch’s Little Jumps, Big Changes fundraiser. Joshua took the initiative to develop his personal fundraising page and using a grassroots approach, secured over $1,400.00 and counting.
Joshua is the example of going above and beyond and for that reason, he is the recipient of the Rock Star Award for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego for the first quarter.
