GREAT FUTURES START HERE.
n every community, boys and girls are left to find
their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An
increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or
supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares
about them.
The Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and
services promote and enhance the development of boys and
girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging
and influence.
Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while
having fun. It is the place where great futures are started each
and every day.
Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls
Club and are critical in exerting a positive impact on youth. Clubs
are dedicated spaces, designed solely for youth programs and
activities; are open every day after school and often on weekends; have full-time, trained youth development professionals;
WHO WE ARE.
and reach out to all kids, including those who cannot afford
other community programs.
The Boys & Girls Clubs believe every child has the potential to BE GREAT.
In support of this strong conviction, the Clubs strive to build caring, responsible citizens.
The Boys & Girls Clubs family – a community of staff, volunteers, parents, youth and supporters –
work together to create a positive place, full of hope and opportunity, for every child.

lubs are community-based, building-centered,
and led by professional staff. We provide programs during
non-school hours and the summer that meet the unique
interests and needs of young people, ages 5-18.
Boys & Girls Clubs provide young people with:
• A safe place to spend time during non-school hours
and the summer as an alternative to the streets or
being home alone.
• A chance to play, have fun, laugh and learn.
• The ability to build new skills that raise each child’s
belief that he or she can succeed and receive
recognition for personal accomplishments.
• Ongoing relationships with caring adults and
connections to new friends in a positive environment,
reinforcing a sense of belonging, personal
accountability, civility, and civic responsibility.
• Participation in generation-changing programs that
support a commitment to learning, positive values,
healthy habits and high expectations for success
as an adult.

LET’S CHANGE
The “education equation” is more than schools and parents. A crucial factor is the local community
organization, which bridges the gap between academia and home. Youth-serving organizations, such
as Boys & Girls Clubs, often serve as partners to both teachers and parents by providing programs
and resources to bolster schoolwork.
The dropout crisis is not just a school, youth or parent issue – it’s a community and societal issue.
A crisis of this magnitude involves ALL of us.
Boys & Girls Clubs are uniquely positioned to make a difference in turning this
national trend. To do so, Boys & Girls Clubs has made high school graduation a
priority for Club members. To ensure that youth leave the Clubs as well-rounded
individuals with a plan for the future, Clubs are focusing efforts on three key
outcome areas: Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship, and
Healthy Lifestyles.
BGCA has implemented three strategies to support these outcomes.
1. Every Member, Every Year, BGCA’s graduation strategy, aims to ensure all
Club members progress on time each year to the next grade level.
2. Live Healthy helps educate youth about fitness, nutrition and
smart decisions.
3. Be Engaged provides character, leadership and service learning
opportunities for Club members.
The Well-Rounded Child.
Every day, the Clubs provide a wealth of programs and activities to prepare young people for real-world successes.
By focusing on academics, health and fitness, and leadership and service, the children and youth served by the Clubs will be
better prepared to graduate high school and thrive as adults, contributing to their communities and to their nation.
BE SMART. BE SUCCESSFUL.
T
he Boys & Girls Clubs have made high school graduation a priority for every member
served by the Clubs. Our goal is that every Club member graduates on time, prepared with
a plan for the future. We are focusing our efforts to ensure that Club youth are engaged in
targeted programs in three key outcome areas – academic success, good character and
citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. By encouraging young people to do well in school,
motivating them to serve their community, and charging them to take responsibility for
their well-being, the Clubs are preparing youth for real-world success.
Our graduation strategy – Every Member, Every Year – aims to ensure that all Club members
progress on time each year to the next grade level. Staff do this by discussing the importance
of school and high school graduation; recognizing academic successes, including homework
completion, grade improvement and progression; and implementing educational programming
that teaches members new skills and reinforces those needed to be successful in school.
The Clubs are also working to ensure young people move forward from their Club experience
as well-rounded individuals. To that end, we believe it is important to engage youth in
character, leadership and service-learning. Studies show that young people who engage in
service do better in school, maintain positive relationships with adults and peers, and avoid
risky behaviors. Even more, youth who participate in community involvement programs
demonstrate positive educational outcomes. The effects often center around improving young
people’s engagement in school and increasing the likelihood that they will attend school
regularly and not drop out.
Taken from “Our Nation’s Dropout Crisis Is Everyone’s Problem: Why Boys & Girls Clubs Are Part of the Solution”
distributed by Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
EVERY MEMBER. EVERY YEAR.
“
I always go back to lessons learned at the Club. We discovered there was something higher than ourselves,
and that giving back to others was what really mattered.

THE PROGRAMS
The Boys & Girls Clubs has a lineup of tested and proven nationally recognized programs that address today’s most pressing youth
issues, teaching young people the skills they need to succeed in life.
Education & Career Development, including the Arts – Serves to enrich the information taught in schools, apply
learning to everyday living, and encourage graduation. Programs like BE GREAT: Graduate, Atomic Blast, Junior Staff,
Money Matters, Project Learn, Goals for Graduation, and Power Hour, help youth create aspirations for the future,
providing opportunities for career exploration and educational enhancement. In addition, young people will develop
creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, performing arts,
and creative writing.
Technology – Programs like I.AM Tech and NetSmartz help members embrace technology as means to building
successful futures. The framework provides a range of different contexts for learning – both creative and
practical – that draw on important aspects of everyday life and work.
Public Speaking & Leadership – Members learn the basic skills of public speaking and debate
through programs such as Life Coach, Keystone Club, CLUBService, and Youth of the Year. It empowers
youth to positively influence their Club and community through leadership, development of positive
self-image, participation in the democratic process, and respect for others’ cultural identities.
Health & Life Skills – Initiatives such as Passport to Manhood, RBI, SMART Moves, and Triple Play,
help members develop capacity to engage in positive behaviors and set personal goals that nurture
their own well-being and prepare them to live successfully as self-sufficient adults.

In the 2010 graduating class, three out of every 10 young people didn’t
make the grade.1 Yet for African-American, Hispanic/Latino and Native American
populations, this number is dramatically worse with just over half graduating on time.2
Low graduation rates contribute to increases in unemployment, poor health, crime
and drug use. It lowers tax revenue and increases public assistance expenses.
Our young people are future workers, voters and community members. They are our
neighbors. When we fail kids, we fail our communities and ourselves.
It’s time to give our children and our country a better and brighter future.
