A place to thrive, grow, and BELONG. At the Boys & Girls Club of Portland Metro (BGCP), new Club cards are a big deal. Every fall, our members are excited to learn what the new membership card will look like and make lanyards and necklaces in the art room to proudly display their Club card. The Club card represents the sense of belonging each youth and teen has with their Club or school site. It is a symbol of their ownership and access to the special community that we foster in our buildings. Club cards become cherished mementos. It’s not uncommon for kids to show off how many cards they have collected over their time with us, or for alumni of all ages to keep them for years and years. It’s not just a membership card. It’s a constant reminder that no matter what, you belong at the Boys & Girls Club.

Our Mission To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. 3

A Message from the CEO Here we are already, reporting on yet another dynamic year of empowering thousands of youth in our communities across four counties to realize their greatest potential. By providing them with physical and community space, youth and teens can nourish and stretch the skills they will need to be engaged, active and fulfilled adults. What a privilege it is to do this work, and it simply cannot be done without the investment of all of you. Youth and teens in our area face headwinds on their journey toward growing into healthy, successful adults. For example, child poverty in Portland is growing at an unprecedented rate. In a time of increasing rates of community displacement and mounting structural barriers to economic and educational achievement, the Clubs can serve as a place to help level the playing field for all our members. We are often asked, “How are the Clubs a game changer?” Club programs provide services to young people ages six to 18 who come from a wide variety of backgrounds; a population reflective of Portland today and most certainly our future. We offer lowbarrier access to resources like healthy food, technology, caring mentors, homework support, athletic leagues, art programs, college visits, first jobs, summer camps for youth and teens and more. This access, coupled with a safe community space, of which Club members themselves feel ownership, is game changing. For example, Club youth are proving that they do not have to risk the summer “learning slide”. Through our Summer Brain Gain program, our youth are now actually returning to school in the fall pacing ahead of where they were at the end of the school year. Our work is made possible by a broad community of supporters, including our dedicated Board of Directors, our Pacesetters, and Associate Board. We work alongside education, non-profit, and business partners; foundations; local community groups; and individuals to advance and perfect this work. Many of us were helped in some way along our personal journey by supportive adults, nurturing environments, peer recognition, and opportunities to develop skills, or at times, to simply relax and have fun. We ask you to join with us to support the Great Futures of our future neighbors, partners, coworkers, customers, students, and leaders, and together help build paths to a bright future for our local communities. Your help is game-changing in helping to ensure the youth and teens across the Portland-Metro area continue to have access to all the benefits our Clubs provide.

A Renewed Commitment to Equity BGCP is constantly working to tailor our overall delivery of services to meet the individual and diverse needs of the young people and communities we are privileged to serve. We are actively dedicated to not only improving diversity and representation across our organization, but to also structurally embedding equity and inclusion in everything we do. In early 2016, BGCP was honored to be selected to join the first cohort of five local non-profits to participate in an intensive, year-long equity and inclusivity leadership and training initiative. Endorsed and sponsored by Oregon Community Foundation, Meyer Memorial Trust, The Collins Foundation and others, the Center for Equity and Inclusion (CEI) is leading the initiative. CEI is dedicated to bringing organizations together to identify and learn the role of equity and inclusion within our workplaces and the steps necessary to integrate these practices into the overall organization. In 2017 we are continuing to put this work into action, as we unite to create a formal equity plan that will guide us and our work every day.

Our Formula for Program Success Boys & Girls Club’s Five Elements of Youth Development SAFE, POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT



Club staff, facilities and programs create stability, consistency and a sense of safety for members.

Club youth acquire physical, social, technological, artistic and life skills. Clubs encourage members to develop a moral character while staff reinforce high expectations.

The Club is fun! Fun is what keeps kids coming back. Members develop a strong sense of belonging through connections they establish with staff and peers.

SUPPORTIVE RELATIONSHIPS Club kids develop meaningful, appropriate relationships with peers and adults. Staff members display caring, appreciation, acceptance and guidance in their interactions with members.

RECOGNITION Club staff and leadership recognize and support young people’s self-worth and accomplishments. Staff members encourage youth and provide positive reinforcement.


academic programs Power Hour Power Hour provides Club professionals with strategies, activities, resources and information to create an engaging homework help program that encourages Club members at every age to become self-directed learners.

Summer Brain Gain Offered in Clubs during the summer, Brain Gain is an interactive, educational program dedicated to minimizing the accumulative learning loss that occurs over summer break, especially underserved communities.

CS-First BGCP collaborated with Google to implement a brand new technology program at our Clubs. CS-First is a free computer science program designed by Google, and aimed at nine to 14 year old youth to increase access and exposure to computer science education.

“I’ve seen firsthand that Summer Brain Gain is helping kids retain knowledge during the summer and it’s making them way more prepared for school. Whether they know it or not, they’re learning while they’re experiencing.”






addressing critical academic needs Meeting literacy and math achievement benchmarks is critical for youth and teens to graduate and to achieve academic and workplace success. BGCP is committed to making real change happen for our kids by helping to level the playing field for all youth. Youth entering the Clubs are bolstered by comprehensive educational programming including: homework assistance, mentoring, core academic learning activities, and time for exploratory learning experiences that may illuminate new career tracks and inspire postsecondary educational pursuits. Through programs like CS-First, Kid Wind, Summer Brain Gain and Moby Max, BGCP connects youth with access to STEM and computer science resources to which they might not otherwise have access, particularly during afterschool hours. These opportunities can empower youth and teens with skills that help them to be competitive in technology-driven fields. Our academic programs make jobs, and the skills they require, incredibly tangible. Through these programs, BGCP works to increase youth’s positive perception of their own ability to thrive in any chosen field. We also foster an environment where youth peers reinforce each other’s ability to be successful.


youth combated summer learning loss through the Summer Brain Gain programs





growing strong bodies & minds According to recent research, this generation of youth are the first who may have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. The reason? Inactivity. Between the ages of nine and 15, American and European kids’ activity levels drop by 50-75 percent. Focusing on getting kids more active before the age of 10 could change the trajectory for the next generation. Giving kids access to physical activity and health-focused programs that are fun, inclusive, educational, and appropriate for their age and skill level, helps ensure early positive exposure to physical activity and increases their likelihood of staying active across their lifetimes. BGCP’s physical fitness and healthy choices programs help youth develop healthy life skills. • Physical fitness programs like Marathon Kids and Leadership Athletic Leagues • Free, nutritious meals and snacks served in Clubs • Access to health screenings and dental care through community partnerships • Lifestyle programs that that emphasize healthy relationships • Comprehensive sexual health programs for teens • Resources such as clothing closets, to help youth and families access clothing, food, and more • Nutrition and cooking classes

139,178 healthy meals and nourishing snacks were served in our Clubs


healthy habits programs SMART Moves SMART Moves (Skills Mastery and Resistance Training) is a prevention and education program for youth ages eight-12 that addresses issues such as drug and alcohol use and premature sexual activity.

Nutrition Services With funding from Oregon Department of Education CACFP and SFSP, as well as Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon, five of our Clubs provide free meals, nutritional education and food service training to hungry children.

Access to Health Services & Screenings Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland connects youth and families with services in the community that provide free dental care, vision screenings, health fairs, and more.

“Our food is so delicious and nutritious. It might be the only meal that some kids get that day so it is very important!�



leadership programs Keystone Club Keystone Club is a unique leadership development experience for teens ages 14 to 18. Youth participate, both in and out of the Club, on activities focused on academic success, career preparation and community service.

Service Squad Service Squad is a civic engagement program that involves youth in small volunteer community service projects from their Clubs each week with monthly themes ranging from gratitude to global citizenship. Participants track their involvement, and receive credit for their volunteer service hours.

Youth of the Year Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program, celebrating the achievements of Club teens. Teens are selected based on values of leadership service, academic excellence, and healthy lifestyles.


“As an immigrant to this country, the first time that I walked through the doors of the Club I knew nothing about American culture and was suffering from culture shock. The Boys & Girls Club was the first place that welcomed me as their own from the beginning. The Club has given me what many other people in my life have never given me, opportunity.”





fostering civic engagement & leadership Young people are key agents for social change. The youth and teens in our communities will provide the energy, creative ideas and determination to drive the next generation of innovation and revolution. Volunteerism is an important tool for young people to bring about positive change in society. Volunteerism is also an effective way to engage young people in intentionally having a positive local impact. At BGCP, civic engagement and leadership go hand-in-hand. Programs like Service Squad, Youth of the Year, Keystone Club, and Torch Club fuse leadership and civic engagement together – showing youth that being a leader means being invested in one’s community. Service learning and volunteerism complements formal education in building the skills that are required for the job market, including: leadership, teamwork, problem-solving, planning, management, creativity, communication and negotiation.


hours of community service were completed by youth as part of the Service Squad leadership program





navigating transitions, empowering leaders Out-of-school time can be ripe with positive opportunities for teens. One way BGCP engages teens is by creating programs that interest them and that promote healthy development. Teen Club programs are designed to provide the same supports and opportunities we provide younger children, albeit through a modified approach that is tailored for teens’ needs and interests. Our approach to serving teens is based on: • A strong grounding in how to effectively work with teens. • A breadth of activities • An emphasis on leadership • A focus on having staff develop relationships with the teens • Time for teens to just “hang out” with peers. • A space of their own, in which teens can relax and socialize • Work and horizon-broadening experiences Boys & Girls Club teen programs strive to provide new inroads for youth voices that will ripple out into the future. Teens, who are experts on their own lives, will continue to have new and strengthened platforms from which to speak. We work closely with a broad array of partners, including, for example, those supported by the Mayor’s Community Center Initiative to provide effective teen programming across the Portand Metro.

58 teens secured jobs through BGCP’s YouthForce job-readiness program


teen programs YouthForce The YouthForce program, sponsored by Key Bank, is a unique employment and career development opportunity for teens that provides job readiness training, employment opportunities; and overall career planning. Teens participating in the program are currently working at Portland Timbers and Thorns games.

UPS Road Code The UPS Foundation has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of America since 2009 to deliver UPS Road Code, a free national program educating teens on safe driving techniques. The UPS Road Code program is based in large part on the same safety training used with UPS’s own drivers.

NightScape “YouthForce helped me get prepared for college and the workforce and helped me get to where I am now. It made me comfortable engaging with people, being able to be more vocal, and taught me how to build a resume.”

Dominique Duncan YOUTHFORCE TEEN

NightScape is Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland’s weekend program for teens. On Friday and Saturday nights, Clubs open their doors for teens to play basketball and engage in themed activities each week. Nightscape is made possible through generous support from the Schnitzer CARE Foundation. 15

leadership leagues

“Coaching with the Boys & Girls Club provided an amazing opportunity to work with kids with unlimited amounts of energy. There is no greater feeling than watching a player not only learn basic basketball concepts but to take away life lessons like team work, integrity, and compassion.”

Coach Rashida Saunder Our Leagues, which are in partnership with Buffalo Wild Wings All-Star Leagues, bring together community volunteers. BGCP’s Leadership Leagues are committed to a safe and positive environment that encourages each participant to develop their athletic skills, and more importantly their leadership skills, which they will be able to use on and off the court. LEAGUE DETAILS:

• Open to all youth grades 1-6 • $45 per player • Co-ed Teams SPORTS

• Basketball • Indoor Soccer • Flag Football

266 266 youth participated in leadership leagues last year 16





building character is as vital as building skills The unique Club environment creates an opportunity for youth who were afraid of the gym,or didn’t know how to play sports, to try something new. BGCP’s Athletics & Fitness initiatives increase children and teen’s daily physical activity, teaches them good nutrition, and helps them develop healthy relationships. Leadership Leagues infuse smallgroup leadership and service into play, keeping kids active yearround. BGCP intentionally keeps Leagues affordable so that all children can participate. Leadership Leagues are focused on character development as opposed to merely competition and skill development. Our weekly focus on a different value such as respect and honesty broadens the focus of engagement so that youth feel successful on and off the court.

49,053 hours of sports and fitness activities were completed by youth in our Clubs last year. 17

Financial Snapshot


Road to Rockwood Staying true to our mission of serving communities that need us most, in August of 2016, BGCP broke ground on the construction of a new Boys & Girls Club in Gresham’s Rockwood community. The new Rockwood Club will be centrally located at the intersection of three metro school districts (Reynolds, Gresham-Barlow, and Centennial), and is anticipated to annually serve 2,500 youth with an average of 250-300 youth and teen members daily. BGCP will build on partnerships with Reynolds schools focused on our Margaret Scott SUN program and with the City of Gresham through the Summer Kids in the Park (SKIP) program at Gresham park locations. Lead investors in this important project include: The Bill and Ann Swindells Charitable Trust The State of Oregon Precision Castparts/PCC Structurals The Johnson Charitable Trust

The Collins Foundation The MJ Murdock Charitable Trust Nike and the Ever Higher Fund

BGCP has partnered with P&C Construction as our builder whose roots tie back to the Gresham community. Along with Holst Architecture, and the active consultation with BGCP’s youth development staff, the new Club has been designed to inspire horizon broadening enrichment for the specific needs of the young people within the Rockwood community. The Rockwood Boys & Girls Club will feature learning, innovation, and activity spaces for youth 12 and younger, and will be the first Club in the metro area to have an independent teen center that will be designed to inspire age and socially-appropriate activities for young people 13 and older in spaces designed with teen’s top of mind. The new Club site is located in the center of the Rockwood neighborhood at the corner of SE 165th and Stark Street. The facility will be approximately 28,000 square feet occupying 1.7 acres of a 4-acre plot. Open School East, an alternative school for youth, neighbors the new Club and will share our kitchen and gym. Additionally, New Avenues for Youth, a homeless youth provider, will lease space in our Club and share teen services with BGCP. The new Rockwood Club will feature an industrial kitchen and commons/café space that is anticipated to serve 60,000 hot meals a year. The new Club will also feature a 7,200 square foot gymnasium that will host daily Club fitness and recreation programs, BGCP sports leadership league competitions, and be available to the broader community. In addition to traditional programming at the Rockwood Club, BGCP will deliver evidencebased gang, violence, and drug prevention and resistance programs; and targeted workforce training and placement programs for teens with the help and collaboration of other non-profits working with young people Rockwood.
