Dear SBAN Family,
This past month, we featured the amazing stories and select biographies of SBAN's dedicated interns, volunteers and board members.  Each of these stories bring to light SB/BT experiences that have made lifelong impacts on those who have been involved in SB/BT as students, teachers or interns.  It is our hope that these alumni remind you of all the ways SB/BT has touched your life so that you will contribute to these life-changing experiences for a new generation of leaders.
All the best,
Featured Board Member - Al Gonzales  
Al has been a part of SB/BT since 1991, starting his journey as a teacher at University High School in San Francisco.  Since then, Al has been actively involved in the SB/BT community and currently serves as the Chairman of SBAN's Board of Directors. 

Club 12 Update
Every time you donate a multiple of $12 to Club 12, you receive 1 Club 12 Spirit Point. Similarly, every time you refer an alumnus to join the network, you receive 1 Club 12 Spirit Point.

As you may know for the month of March, Club 12 Spirit Points were doubled. This meant that for every $12 dollars you donate, you received 2 Club 12 Spirit Points. The same applied for referrals: Refer 1 alumnus to join the network and receive 2 Spirit Points.

In case you missed the opportunity to give to Club 12 in March, don’t worry because now is your chance, and, as your reward…

We have decided to extend the same double Club 12 Spirit Points promotion for the next 10 days!

Spirit Points for Club 12 will accumulate in your name for your participation. In

November, SBAN will hold a Club 12 Spirit Points Giveaway. Stay tuned for more information!
