TCF and the City of Stockton have partnered with the common goal of creating an environment for programs that that will model respect, personal responsibility, and civic involvement.

Merlo Gym

Merlo Gymnasium allows TCF to actively partner with the community to provide the tools and resources necessary to build a safe place to live, work and play. Our unique focus is driven by our belief that no child is a product of their community, but rather a product of the opportunities made available to them.

TCF has created a calendar that has local activities/events for the area’s youth and their families. The location of the gym and hosted events has strengthened as well as inspired South Stockton communities.

Events at Merlo Gym
