Charting impact

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

The Ulbrich Boys & Girls Club aims to fill the gap between school and home. We look to provide a welcoming, positive environment in which kids and teens have fun, participate in life-changing programs, and build supportive relationships with peers and caring adults.

Our professional staff and youth development staff uses their training and has reached out to the area colleges, high schools and other community organizations to provide more attentive programming.

Our Club has been historically small. Over the past 5 years, we have worked aggressively to grow and expand within our community and surrounding towns. Our first step was to send our Program Director to the BGCA Club Director Academy. By sending him to the Academy, he was able to evaluate our program as a whole, and identify strategic plans to grow our program. Next, we hired a seasoned Executive Director, to steer the organization in the necessary direction. To round out our growth, we hired a Resource and Marketing Officer, to provide leadership through grants, sponsorship, and marketing. As our Club’s commitment to our Youth Development Professionals, we have become
actively involved in the Connecticut Association of Boys & Girls Clubs. We have attended statewide development trainings, bi-monthly meetings, and have brought our youth to statewide events, experience other Clubs and their peers. With our consistent commitment to improve, this grant will help our Power Hour grow tremendously. Through the Program Quality Assessment, we will be able to see what we our program needs to improve in, and create a plan to improve Power Hour. We will be able to report our parents, community, and leadership, how we plan to improve our member’s grades, and set them up for academic excellence.

We have provided services for over 850 youth last year. We expanded our services into North Haven to serve more youth. Last year, we were the recipient of the 2019 Greater New Haven Chamber Nonprofit “Super Nova Impact” Award. This award goes “to an organization with effective staff and Board leadership, sound financial management and significant community impact.”

Covid-19 restrictions made us close one of our newer units and added all-day expanded services to help our communities and students to have a safe place to learn and positively impact their academic success.
