Alameda Architectural Preservation Society

Dedicated to the Architectural Preservation of Historic Structures in the City of Alameda
The Alameda Architectural Preservation Society (AAPS), previously known as the Alameda Victorian Preservation Society (AVPS), was founded in 1972 and incorporated in 1975. At the time AAPS was founded, Victorian homes were being routinely demolished and replaced with apartment buildings. The Society was a vocal supporter of Measure A, which  was enacted into law as Article XXVI of the city charter. This law is still in effect and helps prevent the further destruction of historically significant homes by prohibiting their replacement with large multiple unit buildings. The continuing goal of AAPS is to increase public awareness and appreciation of historic architecture in Alameda.

Alameda Boys & Girls Club

The Big Picture
Today, the closing bell will ring in Alameda schools and roughly 10,000 students will leave the school grounds. Some will go home to a parent, some will go to an after school program. But many will go it alone—and will enter the most dangerous time of the day for children. Research indicates that youth-related crime triples between 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. every weekday. National statistics, and daily headlines, make it clear that unsupervised children are at greater risk in the after-school hours.
Why the Alameda Boys & Girls Club?
The Alameda Boys & Girls Club is more than just a place for recreation. We provide activities and experiences that enrich the lives of young people in our community. Indeed, the quality of life we all enjoy is due, in part, to the Club’s sustained attention to the changing needs of today’s youth.

We involve young boys and girls in wholesome activities that build their self-esteem and self-worth. We teach the values of responsibility and respect. We empower children to make wise and educated life choices. In this age of teen alcohol and drug use, premarital sex, and violence, we work to help create model citizens for our future. And we give every youth the chance they deserve to have a great future by providing the tools and support they need to achieve their dreams.
