Impact cannot be fully quantified by statistics, but measuring outcomes is a good indicator of a plan that's working. The return on investment that the Boys & Girls Clubs make into our communities can be seen in the potential of every one of the 1,400 youth that walks through our doors every day.
Investing in our future
How do we measure impact?
One Great Future at a time
Investing in a child is a long-term commitment that results in long term impact. We focus on 3 core areas of impact that allow young people to develop successful habits that prepare them for the future.
What our graduates are doing?
These programs help our youth create aspirations for the future, providing opportunities for career exploration and educational enhancement. This also includes the Art Programs which enables our youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, performing arts and creative writing.
These initiatives develop young people’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals, and live successfully as self-sufficient adults. Sports, Fitness, and Recreations programs help develop fitness, positive use of leisure time, reduction of stress, appreciation for the environment, and social and interpersonal skills.
Helping youth become responsible, caring citizens means they must develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, and contributing to the Club and the community and celebrating our national heritage.
