The national programs implemented by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America have had proven successful over the years and have taken care of the most unrelenting issues facing youth in today’s society. These programs have taken members from the Clubhouse to the White House, from the game room to the corporate boardroom, and from the high school orchestra to Carnegie Hall. The young men and women who complete our programs not only have mentors they can look up to, but also learn necessary skills to lead a successful life.
Our programs employ the Formula for Impact, which is a strategy with the intention of helping members achieve academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles.
It represents the five key elements for positive youth development:
With these five elements in place, on top of high-yield activities and regular attendance, the goal is to ensure that our students graduate from high school ready for college, trade school, military, or employment. Also, that they will become an engaged citizen involved in the community, register to vote, and model strong character. Not only that, but we strive for them to adopt a healthy diet revolved around practicing sound lifestyle choices and making a lifelong commitment to fitness. With these goals in mind, you can guarantee that your students will be given skills that will last a lifetime while surrounded by those who truly care about their wellbeing.
