This project provides a positive place for over 13,000 kids during non-school hours. With 18 sites, the Club offers safe & clean facilities, keeping kids off the streets and productively engaged.
What is the issue, problem, or 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 Café 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.
How will this project solve this problem?
By providing life-saving programs, young people of all backgrounds will develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders of our community.
Potential 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.
