The Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena (BGCP) has announced the appointment of Christina Altmayer, Corey Castillo and Lola Osborne to its board of directors.

“We are delighted to welcome Christina, Corey and Lola to our Board of Directors and look forward to working with them to advance the club’s post-COVID awakening,” said Lisa Cavelier, CEO of BGCP. “Each brings a unique set of skills and talents to our work. “

A longtime Pasadena resident, Altmayer is a senior executive with extensive experience and success leading public agencies dedicated to early childhood. Her work has focused on policy and system changes to better meet the needs of children in the areas of health care and early childhood education. She recently joined Health Management Associates after leading high impact efforts to implement and expand maternal and pediatric early intervention services as Senior Vice President of the Center for Children and Family Impact for First LA. Previously, she was Executive Director of First 5 Orange County, where she led the organization through a comprehensive strategic planning and implementation process and oversaw an annual program portfolio of $ 35 million.

Altmayer has led his own management consulting organization serving non-profit, public and private organizations on long-term financial planning, strategy development, program design and implementation, performance management and evaluation. She started her career in consulting at Ernst & Young, as a senior manager serving public and private clients.

Altmayer and her husband Tom have raised three children who are now in their twenties.

Castillo is a senior executive with proven results in organizational optimization, strategic development and revenue improvement across multiple industries. From health and fitness to corporate philanthropy, professional services, healthcare, legal services and a variety of other areas, Castillo has taken a multisectoral approach to aligning people, processes and products to achieve value-based, scalable and sustainable results. Castillo is currently COO of Lagerlof, LLP, now Pasadena’s largest law firm.

Prior to joining Lagerlof, he was Director of Development and Operations and then Head of Optimization at United Way of Greater Los Angeles. He is also an accomplished executive coach with a private practice dedicated to partnering with executives, business owners, entrepreneurs and artists to achieve their personal and professional goals.

Castillo also sits on several non-profit boards and volunteer initiatives dedicated to faith, health, cancer support services, youth and community development. In his spare time, he enjoys lifting weights, reading, writing and spending time with his wife Christine, their daughter Eleanor and their English Bull Terrier Vladimir.
Osborne began his career with the City of Pasadena in 1986 in the planning department. During her 35-year career in the city, she held the positions of municipal inspector, town planner, Northwest manager and deputy director. In these various positions, Osborne acted as the city’s liaison with various community groups, developers and local businesses.

In his current position in the Parks Community Services and Recreation Department, Osborne oversees community service programs at various community centers. An added benefit of her current position is a program for local high school students where she discovered her passion for working with youth through the city’s Youth Ambassador program – giving 32 high school students and over 300 alumni. Students get basic hands-on training for employment through city and local events.

Osborne’s past community affiliations and board members include the Youth Development Mentorship Partnership (MPYD) and the Pasadena Community Health Alliance (CHAP). She has also worked with Neighbors Acting Together Helping All (NATHA) to collaborate with an entrepreneurial training program for youth in Pasadena and Altadena. Osborne is the proud mother of two grown children, Natalie and Deven.

Serving more than 2,000 young people aged 6 to 18 each year, BGCP focuses on academic success, a healthy lifestyle, as well as good character and leadership. The club experience bridges the gap between school and home – all year round – by providing a welcoming, safe and supportive environment in which children and teens have fun, participate in life-changing programs, make friends and find encouragement from caring adults.

The Club operates two branches in Pasadena: the Slavik branch on East Del Mar Boulevard and the Mackenzie Scott branch on North Fair Oaks Avenue.
