We have created an innovative county-wide program called CREW (Career Readiness Empowered Workforce), which focuses on career exploration and job readiness in partnership with local businesses. This comprehensive program provides our teens with hands-on work experience, job mentoring and career development opportunities. Youth develop the needed skills and knowledge to help find, apply, and interview for a job; develop appropriate work habits; increase decision-making skills and implement career goals; all while being mentored by a local business professional and building their resumes in a real world career-related experience. Other programs that we provide under our Job Mentoring program area include: CareerLaunch, Dave Ramsey's Financial Literacy, and Money Matters.

Charting impact

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

It is our mission to inspire and enable all young people to reach their full potential as responsible, productive and caring citizens. All young people need: a safe place where they can learn and grow; caring adults who provide positive guidance; a wide variety of enriching life experiences; hope for a positive future; and opportunities to reach their goals and dreams.

Services: For the past 27 years, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the North Valley has been at the forefront of youth development in after-school and teen services at 10 Club sites throughout Butte & Glenn Counties. As a national organization for over 100 years, Boys & Girls Clubs across the nation have shared four unique characteristics that have proven successful in attracting youth from all backgrounds, and that enhance the club's abilities to work in partnership with other organizations possessing similar goals and values.

We offer programs that prepare youth make good choices, contribute to society, and be employable. Daily, young people from all walks of life come to the club to find mentoring relationships, get help with their studies and participate in a variety of fun and enriching activities like cooking classes, computer programming, music, art and recreation.

The cost of an annual membership is only $100 and young people whose families cannot afford to pay are entitled to apply for a scholarship. The true cost of annual services to youth is approximately $2,500 per member however, through the generosity of our community supporters, no child is ever turned away for economic reasons.

Forbes, SmartMoney, Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report have all ranked BGCA among the top American charitable organizations based on cost-effective use of donor dollars. WORTH magazine ranked BGCA as one of America's top 100 charities based on financial efficiency, strength of reputation, and program effectiveness.

What Makes the Club Unique: The Boys & Girls Club has a unique combination of characteristics, programs and services that complement other youth and family service organizations:

Open daily to ALL boys and girls;
Facility that is dedicated to youth only;
Low or no cost;
Paid youth development professional staff
Programs that are proven to work.

While we have made great strides in the development of Butte County youth over the past 27 years, the demographics of our region prove that Boys & Girls Clubs of the North Valley will continue to be a need. 61% of our members live in a single or non-traditional household... 27% utilize other social services... 70% live at or below the poverty level. There is great work that remains to be done for the at-risk children who need us the most.
