Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There is a great need for childcare, afterschool and summer care for youth. We fulfill that need for families. Many families are struggling to meet their families basic needs because they are underemployed or working two jobs and can't afford basic living needs, much less childcare. Youth need a safe place to go where they are supervised and mentored by caring adults. Youth need to be taught the importance of education and graduating on time, healthy life skills and good character and citizenship. We are the positive place for kids.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To fulfill our mission of inspiring and empowering youth to achieve success and become good citizens. Our goal is to become the premier youth serving organization in our community, offering programs that meet quality standards, with ongoing assessment and accountability, and trained staff and board. We strive to provide all Club members with a high-quality Club experience that is safe and fun, leads to a sense of belonging, and develops the skills needed to achieve success in the 21st Century.

Utilize our national organization, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, for resources, funding opportunities, training, and technical assistance to ensure we offer an optimal Club experience.
Work towards our agency's Strategic Plan to accomplish our goals.
Annually assess the quality of the Club experience by surveying our members using the National Youth Outcomes Initiative (NYOI).
Continually review our Club experience and make adjustments to programming based on the NYOI results, staff observation, and board and community input.
Continue to generate additional revenue in an effort to provide increased quality programming and services to our members.
Be good stewards of the funds we have with close oversight by the board of directors.
Establish partnerships with public and private institutions, service organizations, and community volunteers to better serve our members and maximize our resources.

We have a strong, committed board who works diligently to achieve our goals. We have a long history of success, since 1968, and strong community support. Our staff are experienced in working with youth and the executive director has years of experience in grant writing and fund raising as well as youth services. Our Club is fiscally sound and has the ability to sustain the organization through lean times. The board develops and then works on our Strategic Plan to achieve our goals and objectives toward improving our organization.

I) Money & Resource- we have expanded our resource development plan, increased our annual revenue from fund raising events, and begun expanding our individual donor base and Alumni group.
II) Organizational Development- we have done annual reviews of staff, are progressing on board development and adding new board members, working on a due diligence process, and have a plan for policy and procedure review.
III) Program & Impact- we have grown our teen membership and average daily attendance, implemented new programs for our members, and increased our leadership clubs and their engagement.
IV) Marketing- we have surveyed the community, board, and parents, developed a calendar for communication of events to board and staff, increased community involvement, and are working on developing a comprehensive written Marketing & Communications Plan.
Our next steps are to continue working down the goals of our Strategic Plan and adding as we see the need.
