Shane Victorino Nicetown Boys & Girls Club

Our signature project is the renovation of the Nicetown Boys & Girls Club, located in one of the most economically challenged areas of Philadelphia. Historically, this club is one of the "original 53" that formed Boys & Girls Clubs of America, more than 100 years ago. However, prior to the renovation, the Club was in dire need of repair and in danger of closing.
The updated facility opened in September 2011 as the “Shane Victorino Nicetown Boys & Girls Club,” making it one of only a handful of clubs named in honor of an MLB player. The 16,000 square foot building includes a gym, media/technology center, study rooms, game room and teen center. The Club offers a wide range of education, leadership, art and fitness programs, but most important, it provides a safe place for kids after school.
 
In an area lacking in positive after-school options for youth, the renovation of this club will strengthen the community as a whole.

Children and youth

SVF's Youth Baseball Clinic allows underserved youth with an interest in baseball to learn fundamentals of the sport, hone their skills on the field, and have an opportunity to work with local high-school coaches and MLB players. Through this one-day event in Hawaii, we give children a unique learning experience that will have a lasting impact on their lives.Children are grouped by age into stations, where experienced coaching technicians as well as professional baseball players provide individualized instruction in fielding, hitting, catching, baserunning, pitching and conditioning. They also learn rules of the game, proper nutrition, and sportsmanshia motivational segment by Shane Victorino includes the importance of education, dedication and hard work, not only in baseball, but in all aspects of life. He talks about giving back to the community and the lessons he learned from starting out as a Little League player on Maui to eventually becoming a World Series Champion. The positive effects of sports on youth are far reaching. One of the most important effects is exercise. By encouraging participation in youth sports programs, we can take an active role in improving the health of our children. The National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) reports that students perform better in school when they are in good physical health. They achieve higher test scores, miss fewer classes, and are less likely to engage in risky or antisocial behavior. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, students involved in sports are less likely to smoke or abuse drugs, less likely to drop out of school and more likely to be high academic achievers. Enhanced self esteem and learning values such as teamwork and goal setting are also key outcomes. Participation in sports helps children develop healthy lifestyle behaviors and offers them adult role models to guide them through challenges in life.

Our annual holiday program in Las Vegas consists of a toy drive and kids holiday party. At the drive, we collect an average of 1,000 toys which are distributed to local shelters and organizations serving homeless, at-risk or underprivileged youth.

During our kids holiday party, we distribute toys and also provide photos with Santa and lunch or dinner to approximately 100-200 children. Some of the families we have hosted at this event have never taken a family photo.

This time of year is especially difficult for families and children in poverty. Through these events, we try to make their holidays a little brighter for those in need.

Charting impact

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

The Foundation's long term goal in Hawaii is to improve youth baseball facilities throughout the state. We recognize the importance of providing a safe, positive outlet for children in underserved areas, both after school and on weekends. We strive to create partnerships in which we can pool our resources to make a long term impact on at-risk youth and help them to become successful, productive members of society.

We've worked towards this goal by building two batting cages for youth baseball players on Oahu and Maui and hope to do more projects like these in the future. We also offer events like our Youth Baseball Clinic and Kids Holiday Party to provide immediate assistance to children in need.

We have made a significant impact in the Nicetown area in Philadelphia. Prior to opening the renovated Boys & Girls Club, membership and participation were low and the condition of the facility put it in danger of closing. However, the Club currently sees hundreds of members each year and the teen programming especially has seen a dramatic increase. We are extremely proud of the work being done here.

In Hawaii, we have had great success with the two batting cages we built and look forward to more projects like these in the future.
