What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Senior Center

Senior Services - Fulfilling our mission by educating minds, building healthy minds and bodies. The Center provides a wonderful array of educational, cultural, social and wellness programming to older adults.  Our programs are designed to keep seniors active and involved in the community through exercise programs such as yoga and dance as well as learning activities such as "How to use your cell phone: and "How to avoid scams and identity theft."  Additionally, we offer social opportunities, such as "coffee and conversations" and field trips in partnership with the Annie Silver Community Center, Senior Adventures Group.

Population(s) Served

Beyond the Classroom programming provides essential life skills and learning for children & teens after school and on school holidays and vacations.  We achieve our mission by providing learning opportunities that empower and inspire youth, strengthen families, build healthy bodies and minds and develop youth who are not drug or alcohol dependent.  BTC serves approximately 40 students for about a total of 15 hours per week during the school year, offering enrichment in education, art, dance, sports and socialization.  During the summer months and when schools are closed that serves approximately 65 students for about 50 hours per week.  BTC provides 280 days of service per year.  Financial aid applications available.

Population(s) Served

Adventure Time for Teens achieves our mission by educating minds, building healthier bodies, strengthening families and fostering volunteerism.  Adventure Time  provides prevention, education, leadership development and fitness programs to youth 12-17 (those in middle and high school).  Island teens are at risk for being victims of or perpetrators of youth crime, violence, substance abuse, poor academic performance, school dropout, etc.  Adventure Time builds in such areas as problem solving, conflict resolution, self-control, leadership and responsible decision-making.  Adventure Time teens provides teen opportunities for academic enrichment, career exploration, health awareness, recreation and socialization.

Population(s) Served

The Center offers a wide variety of sports for youth and adults of all ages.  Youth:  We offer co-ed indoor soccer, flag football, basketball, and baseball.  In our attempt to serve the entire community we offer age ranges from 3 years of age to graduating high-school seniors.  What makes our program unique is the sportsmanship and values our volunteers pass down to the youth.  To promote fair play we implement a draft system to make sure all the teams are as equal as possible, with each individual getting to play an equal amount and reach his/her full potential.  Adult:  We offer co-ed soccer, two different flag football leagues (30 and over and 18 and over), basketball, volleyball, kickball, softball and even corn hole.  We have a wide range of age groups from 18 to our oldest competitor at 76 - there is no maximum age limit!  Our program is unique in its focus on sportsmanship and comradery.  We have implemented a draft system to make sure that all teams are as equal as possible.

Charting impact

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

The Center is aiming at being a community focused center that the families, residence and visitors of Anna Maria Island have confidence and trust in to provide opportunities to gather…to socialize...to deepen friendships and to make new ones.

This special purpose and role in the community is fulfilled by offering sports, games, exercise, dance, art, music, social gatherings, learning programs, and other engaging opportunities, relevant to the needs of the Anna Maria Island community and, which, in total, provide financial stability for The Center.

Our VISION is to strengthen and maintain community confidence and trust in The Center.

Imperative #1: Develop and deliver consistent, well timed brand messaging and supporting materials.
Imperative #2: Develop deeper partnerships and collaborations with local businesses and people.
Imperative #3: Go beyond the walls of The Center with our programs and activities
Imperative #4: Elevate citizen engagement to improve communications
Imperative #5: Re-evaluate programs, activities, systems and structure to ensure brand alignment
Imperative #6: Developing a sustainable financial model for the future

We will continue to grow. To flourish, we must build upon and leverage our strengths. With a clear directionof leadership, our committed, caring staff can become a supportive, flexible, and accommodating team. The Center's history and traditions may be showcased in the
unique services we provide on the island. The Center should also maintain current
collaborative partnerships and establish new ones throughout the island community.
Making a positive difference in the lives of our staff, members, and community.
• Committed and caring staff
• Supportive, flexible, and accommodating team
• Celebrated history and tradition
• Unique services
• Collaborative partnerships

Over the past two years we have significantly improved our communications and marketing as a result of our re-branding. We have developed new “Centers" reflective of our key programming areas: Youth, Sports, Fitness, seniors, and Culture. We have worked hard to develop a TEAM of employees, and volunteers, members, local businesses, island residence and visitors. This team informs and guides the strategies, programs and day-to-day decisions for The Center. This team approach is critical for the support and fulfillment of our mission. We have seen success in our newly established procedures for tracking attendance in program areas and now are able to report on unique participation, as well as the quantity of programs, as well as the total number of experiences we have provided. We have further established key partnerships to aid in the delivery of “best in class" programming while remaining focused on our history and roots of providing a unique island atmosphere for our local residents, seasonal guests, and visitors.
