A Place to Become

Boys & Girls Clubhouses provide a lot to our members: a place to feel safe, away from the pressure of the world outside; a place where friends come together to laugh, share, and learn; a place to achieve and be recognized; a place to dream, aspire and not just imagine the future, but also see the way there.

For generations, the Boys & Girls Clubs have been seen as a place to be. A place to be safe, to be positive, to be productive, and to be fun. But Clubs are more than that. Not just a haven, or a place to be yourself, Clubs are a place to grow, to mature, to receive support & encouragement. A place for developing relationships, and receiving mentorship—because the Clubs ensure that every member has the opportunity to explore the world around them, and build the future.

The Boys & Girls Clubs are a place to become. All the programs that happen at the Clubs, and all the staff mentorship that goes on each day is focused on serving our kids, and providing the opportunities that change lives. When our team pledges that “great futures start here,” it’s because we see growth that is possible, and we see the difference that can be made. For more than thousands of kids, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County is a place to become great.

Club 100 Incentive Initiative

Attendance serves as the foundation of the Boys & Girls Club measurement strategy. Each of our Clubs strive to increase our average daily attendance (to get as many Members in our Clubs as possible each day) and to improve our retention/renewal rates (keeping our Members in the Club through high school graduation). The Club 100 rewards program is our new initiative to get kids to the Club even more days per school year.

Studies show that youth are more likely to demonstrate more positive outcomes when they attended a Boys & Girls Club at least 52 times per year. The rates of achieving Priority Outcomes were even greater when they attended at least 102 times per year. These kids were more likely to report greater academic success & increased confidence, decreased number of times skipping school, increased school effort, higher levels of community service involvement, increased levels of integrity, & decreased levels of frustration & aggression.

These are the kind of outcomes we prioritize through Club 100, and you can help! By participating in the reward program and providing an incentive for youth to participate in Club programs, you will make a huge difference in the lives of thousands of youth in our community.

When Members reach 100 days of attendance in a School Year, they will receive a Club 100 card. The card will be a badge of honor around the Clubs and in the community, and it will also provide youth with simple, but effective, rewards that serve as the extra incentive to attend—free entry, a complimentary treat, the kind of things that are fun and easy for kids to enjoy on their own or with friends.

If you are in the business of putting big smiles on young folks’ faces, and would like to help us serve kids & teens directly, we would love to include you!
