Californians can now get health coverage through a new, easy-to-use marketplace called Covered California. Covered California will offer health insurance plans, which cannot be canceled or denied, at an affordable price. Californians can shop for the plans on-line or see if they are eligible for Medi-Cal, and Covered California will provide in‑person and phone assistance for those who need it.  Balboa Teen Health Center has Certified California Covered Outreach Workers that can assist in answering your questions. Please contact Amanda Aguilar or Victor Travis at 415-469-4512 for more information.

The 2014 Excelsior Fair/Sunday Streets was held this past Sunday, Sept 28. 

Excelsior Fair Booth.jpg

As usual, Balboa had a booth manned by alumni, parents and students. Balboa merchandise was sold, fun anecdotes were shared, and lots of Bal graduates came by the booth to say hello and reminisce about their years at Balboa.

The streets were closed off for Sunday Streets and filled with people walking, biking and roller-skating. Bands played, performances were held, and a great time was had by all!
