What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

American graduation rates rank 22nd among 28 countries. 3 out of 10 kids are obese or overweight and 1 in 5 American kids live in poverty and the support systems that have raised America's children traditionally, are becoming strained. Students have unrealized hours of out-of-school time. This time is being wasted or worse, is creating bad habits or causing problems that could echo into student's futures. Research indicates that the more time a youth is left on their own during non-school hours the more likely they are to: drop out of school, take part or be victims of juvenile crime, experiment with drugs or alcohol and/or become teen parents. The Boys and Girls Club of Cheyenne is here to counter these possibilities in the lives of children in the Cheyenne community. Issues such as school-knowledge retention, school attendance, healthy living, citizenship and workforce skills are all things that BGCC strives to address early on.

Charting impact

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

Three of the basic goals BGCC holds are Academic Success, Character and Citizenship and Healthy Lifestyles. Members are encouraged and given practical experiences to learn and grown in each of these areas within the Club and within their communities.

Academic Success- The Club provides a learning center and mentors to assist with homework, as well as, summer learning loss prevention programs. Additional learning opportunities and activities include fine arts competitions, photography, financial literacy, career launch and more.

Character & Citizenship- Sportsmanship skills and effective teamwork are taught and encouraged through regular mentoring as well as through Torch Club, Youth of the Year, Cowboy Ethics and opportunities to volunteer.

Healthy Lifestyles - Club activities and educational programs like SMART Girls, Passport to Manhood, Healthy Habits and physical fitness help members develop the skills to break out of negative lifestyle cycles and create good habits for life.

With the focus on improving participant academic achievement, positive youth development and to promote overall participant health and success, the activities incorporated into the after school and summer programs are: Project Learn, with incorporated homework assistance through Power Hour, tutoring, and high-yield learning opportunities united through STEM activities including DIY STEM, Kidz Math, Kidz Science, and computer coding through coding.org. Art and photography will be additional components incorporated into STEM activities. Career exploration and financial literacy are available for Grade 5-6 participants. Behavioral control and modification will be incorporated through SMART Girls, Passport to Manhood, SMART Moves and Triple Play. Behavioral programs will help participants gain confidence in handling situations and reducing barriers to learning. BGCC has an abundance of programming and activities that work to accomplish BGCC's aspirations for its members.

The Boys and Girls Club of Cheyenne has been a staple in the Cheyenne community for 20 years. In the past 9 years specifically, leadership at the organization has elevated the Club to be not only a staple, but a respected and well-supported organization within the community. Strong leadership within the organization including staff and board coupled with long-standing partnerships with organizations like United Way, will allow BGCC to sustain a successful program in the community. The Club also has a strong resource development plan, which works with community partners to ensure that the Club is well-supported financially.

All in all, BGCC is not only financially supported, but is also supported through a professional, dedicated set of staff and volunteers. BGCC is also held in high esteem in the community, receiving support, volunteering, supplies and funding from many different businesses and individuals of the city of Cheyenne.

In the year 2017 Boys and Girls Club of Cheyenne served more than 2,500 students, 900 of them being Club members. For the youth served the Club provided life-changing hours of opportunity, with chances to improve grades in school, learn new skills and interact with positive mentors. BGCC undeniably supported the community and many of its children.

Recently the BGCC received a 21st century grant which will help open a new site within one of Cheyenne's low income school districts. This district is in need of the the Boys and Girls Club support and influence, as many of its students are on free and reduced lunches, have poor attendance and many students come from low income demographics.

Not only in the Cheyenne club opening a new site Fall 2018, it is also joining in the national Club campaign: "Great futures".
This campaign strives to empower our nation's youth to achieve greater success through ensuring every child has access to a safe place after school and during summer break.
