Fiscal Year 2021 Annual Report Find Out What’s Inside

WELCOME BACK! In early July 2020, Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester welcomed members back after a three-month mandated shutdown.

THANK YOU: Safety Advisory Task Force BGCD’s Safety Advisory Task Force was essential to the Club’s reopening. A 25-member group laid out strategies to keep members and staff safe as our buildings came back to life. Lots of hand-washing, social distancing, masks, and disinfectant made joyful reunions possible.

STRONGER TOGETHER After three months at home, staying six feet apart and wearing masks was relatively easy for members. They were so happy to be reunited with friends, role models, coaches, and tutors. Once safety protocols were in place, Club staff could return to what they do best: Welcoming youth and teens and building meaningful connections. It’s a known fact that children are more resilient when they are together with caring youth development professionals. A few ways BGCD reemerged from shut down included summer camp, Learning Hubs, Virtual Programs, and Vacation Weeks, which you will read about later in this Annual Report.

DEAR BGCD FAMILY, We all can agree…emerging from the global pandemic inspired us all to rethink and recalibrate aspects of our daily routines and lives. This was true for Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester, too. From the moment we closed our doors in March 2020, we began planning for the day we could welcome our members back inside our Clubhouses. BGCD’s program staff knew the majority of our parents were essential workers and working from home was not an option for them. We began the new fiscal year (July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021) by reopening our three sites as soon as the government safety restrictions began to ease. Our licensed childcare program opened first and BGCD’s summer camp opened the following week. Inside this Annual Report, we’ll celebrate those who helped BGCD carry out our mission during a year like no other. Together, our donors, staff, program partners, alumni, volunteers, parents’ and members’ resilience, and love for each other made what seemed impossible possible. With gratitude,

Bob Scannell President & CEO

Lee Michael Kennedy Chair, Board of Directors





Community of supportive adults


Intentional, individualized programs & activities Regular attendance

Members gain skills, knowledge, and training they need to pursue their goals, and interests


CHARACTER & COMMUNITY Members develop healthy relationships with peers and adults, while building character to be role models and leaders in the community

HEALTHY DEVELOPMENT Members learn to make and model healthy, physical, social and emotional choices

Together, we provide Dorchester’s children and teens with a lifetime of benefits that are rooted in the experiences they have while they are at BGCD. Thanks to research done by Boys & Girls Clubs of America, we know the five elements listed below meet the developmental needs of children and teens.

Here is what BGCD’s members shared when we surveyed them in March 2021:






98% of members said, “I enjoy coming to the Club.”

96% of members indicated, “Adults at the Club notice when I try hard.”

99% of members reported, “I feel safe at the Club.”

99% of members shared, “People at the Club accept me for who I am.”

94% of members revealed, “I get to explore new things at the Club.”




70 adult professional staff | 75 volunteers | 41 board members

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION When a walk down memory lane brings you to Deer Street… welcome back BGCD alums! Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester alumni are spread far and wide across the country and around the globe, and now that Zoom is a “thing,” alums are finding their way back to Dorchester. The group’s membership grew during the pandemic as people looked for ways to connect with friends and give back to a place that matters to them. Alums met monthly on Zoom, regularly engaged on our social media platforms, raised money for the Rodman Ride, supported holiday food and toy drives, and tutored members in person. Please join in the fun and be sure to “like,” “follow,” and join Club alums on Facebook; you may reminisce about the “good old days” and ensure that today’s members create life-affirming friendships and memories, too.

2021 YOUTH OF THE YEAR Meet BGCD’s 2021 Youth of the Year (YOY). Each year the Club recognizes three members who embody our mission. This year’s three YOY are leaders amongst their peers, and each has made an impact on BGCD in special and unique ways.

JAMIL BOYKIN Youth of the Year

Jamil embodies BGCD’s values of respect, innovation, support and equality. He is a role model for BGCD’s future members. In Jamil’s Youth of the Year essay, he wrote, “At a young age everyone wants to be a star, but kids that are able to do whatever they need to do to help the team win are the most valuable teammates. I learned that I couldn’t always be a star and that I had to elevate my team and make multiple stars.” Jamil remembers being a bit shy on his first day at the Club, and that quickly changed when he saw other kids having fun. He discovered the arts, joined every sports team, and learned how to be a teammate and leader on BGCD’s playing courts. Congratulations, Jamil!


KATE MCGRATH Girl of the Year

Kate has been a member of BGCD since early childhood. During her time at the Club, she has embraced every opportunity that has crossed her path. Today, Kate is a well-rounded young woman heading off to nursing school. Her desire to serve others was borne while visiting Camp Northbound, participating on the Marrlin Swim Team, performing community service with Keystone Club, and working a part-time job helping to teach our little ones in the Club’s childcare program. Kate has discovered her passion for service, and BGCD has truly benefited from Kate’s willingness to work hard and lead. Congratulations, Kate!

When Anthony came to the Club for a music therapy program as a child, he had no idea how important BGCD would become in his life. Anthony uses a wheelchair, and prior to BGCD, his wheelchair limited his access to do things other kids do every day. Anthony has worked with BGCD staff to make sure he and other kids living with disabilities can participate in as many of the Club’s programs as possible. Anthony has accomplished a lot at the Club: He is a four-season athlete, sang at Fenway Park, traveled to Disney World and Camp Northbound, and informed the Club’s approach to inclusion. Anthony is off to college in the fall of 2022, yet his gifts to BGCD will impact each child who needs an accommodation in the future. Congratulations, Anthony!




CHARACTER & LEADERSHIP PROGRAM OVERVIEW Great futures start at Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester, so it was essential for BGCD to find new ways to empower members and help them strengthen their 21st century leadership skills all while social distancing.

Career Readiness: The contributions the Club’s junior staff made during the summer of 2020 were heroic. They kept our doors open, programs running, and members and staff safe. Over 100 teen members were hard at work sanitizing toys, doorknobs, classrooms, and play spaces; they helped younger members safely participate in art, taught music lessons, coached athletics, ran the 30th season of Safe Summer Streets, and accomplished countless other tasks.

Social Justice: BGCD’s return to in person programs in July of 2020 aligned with one of the most significant social movements of our time. The Club’s young people were looking for a safe place to process the traumatic events surrounding George Floyd’s murder and the protests that followed. BGCD’s program directors created safe spaces to encourage expression, creativity, and open dialogue. While we don’t have an end to systemic racism in our sights, BGCD is compelled to do more. We owe it to our members and our world.

KEY DATA POINTS • 97% of BGCD teens reported that if they are leading a group, they make sure everyone in the group feels important.

• 97% of BGCD teens reported that they feel they can stand up for what they think is right, even if their friends disagree.

• 80% of BGCD teens reported that they have volunteered in school, in their neighborhood and/or in their community over the past year.



Affordable childcare is an essential element to a robust economy, and a viable solution for families working at or below the poverty level. COVID-19 created a shortage of childcare options, and women in particular were forced to choose between career and family. This caused what became known as the “shecession” as the global pandemic lingered into 2021. Many BGCD parents work in industries where working from home is not an option, and many of these same families struggle financially. To help ensure Club parents remained in the workforce, the Club built upon its core programming and expanded mental health services and wellness activities for our youngest members.

• BGCD’s Licensed Childcare Program serves infants, toddlers, preschool and K1 • Trained and knowledgeable staff foster learning in an atmosphere of play • Extended day programs are offered year-round in Boston Public School K1DS classrooms • Research-based curriculum aligns with MA standards and guidelines

The programs are licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care and are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

HEALTHY LIFESTYLES Fitness | Athletics | Aquatics | Meals | Cooking | Nutrition | Mindfulness

PROGRAM OVERVIEW Children and teens are navigating challenges no recent generation has encountered. The pandemic, social media, interpersonal and systemic racism, and remote learning have all had negative impacts on our members’ stability and well-being.

KEY DATA POINTS • 97% of BGCD members believe if they try their best, they can do most things.

• 88% of BGCD members avoided risky behaviors (smoking, alcohol, marijuana and fighting).

• 68% of BGCD members consumed at BGCD doubled down to offset social determinants of health and dialed up programming designed to build skills, knowledge, and attitudes to enhance mind, body, and soul.

least 3 servings of fruits/vegetables daily.

• 61% of BGCD members were physically active for 60 minutes daily.

ACADEMIC SUCCESS PROGRAM OVERVIEW Learning Hubs opened inside all three Boys & Girls Clubs of Dorchester’s buildings to support members unable to return to their classrooms. K-8th grade students attended their “school day” inside our Clubhouses, got help logging into their classrooms, ate breakfast and lunch, and received social and emotional support from BGCD staff. Arts, music, swimming, sports, and lots of outdoor play time were woven into the school day as well. Teen members were able to access academic support. They also participated in virtual career fairs, college tours, mentoring programs, SAT prep, FAFSA orientations, and field trips.


KEY DATA POINTS • 91% of BGCD members are on track to graduate from high school.

• 98% of BGCD members report they enjoy learning new things.

• 95% of BGCD members expect to attend college or trade school.

PROJECT BIND Project BIND (Boston Inclusion Network for Disabilities) is a Club ethos, and a program. BGCD believes inclusion means bringing everyone together, embracing the whole person, and welcoming all children into the community. The Club accomplishes this through an array of activities that span the entire organization, including staff training, evolving programs, and a commitment to behavioral health and social/emotional learning.



Families who have children with disabilities often feel isolated, and COVID-19 strained our Project BIND families in new and challenging ways. It was particularly important for BGCD to re-establish these programs as a part of BGCD’s overarching reopening strategy. With masks on, social distancing maps on the floors, and sanitizer at the ready, members of all abilities came back to the Club.

• Martin Richard Challenger Sports League offering year-round athletic programs (soccer, basketball, baseball, and swimming) • Music Therapy • A “Tween” Group • Family Swim Night • Academic support • Recreation activities including hiking, ballet, walking club and more

LIFT PROGRAM Lifting Individuals and Families Together PROGRAM OVERVIEW


The powerful bond between a child and parent is at the center of BGCD’s Lifting Individuals and Families Together (LIFT) program. This family-focused approach draws upon this connection to help parents and their children set goals that lead to economic stability.

• 100% of LIFT families set and worked

The COVID-19 crisis had a profound impact on LIFT participants and motivated staff to explore new ways to serve families. Virtual parent support groups and tools - paired with solid goal-setting - helped participants secure resources (food, formula, diapers, back-to-school supplies), manage emotional well-being, discuss parenting skills, and form meaningful connections with others facing similar experiences.

• 30% of LIFT families increased their

towards family goals.

• 90% of LIFT families established budgets.


LIFT was launched with generous support from the Ullian Institute.

IN MEMORY – BRUCE SEALS Professional Athlete. Mentor. Coach. Friend. Father…and LEGEND. Bruce’s passing on December 15, 2020 left a huge hole in our heart. For more than 30 years, Bruce was a constant presence in the Marr Building, greeting members as they got off their school buses and headed off for an afternoon filled with Club activities. His unique, gentle nature and his belief in each member’s potential inspired kids to be great. He set a high bar for our members, and they accepted the challenge knowing Bruce was there to guide them toward their goals on the playing courts and in life. Bruce was an incredible listener, and he kindly offered his insights and guidance. Bruce once shared that his goal was to become the person he needed as a kid. We believe he achieved this, and so much more. Today, Bruce’s legacy lives on in our hearts, inside our Clubhouses, across Boston and within our alums living all over the country. Thank you, Bruce. We will do our best to make you proud.

❤️Your Club Family
