Challenge

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland will reach thousands of youth and provide them with the guidance they so desperately need. Each child will be instilled with a sense of belonging, usefulness, competency & influence through our life-saving programs. Kids turn to the Club for hot meals through our Kids Cafe and are involved in free counseling through our Youth & Family Services program. In our Literacy Center, thousands of kids, many of whom have dyslexia, are exploring new ways to learn.

Solution

By providing life-saving programs, young people of all backgrounds will develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders of our community.

Long-Term Impact

The project will allow more than 13,000 young people, especially those who needs us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
