HONORING THE PAST, LOOKIN It is an enormous privilege to be a part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland as we celebrate 70 years of serving youth in the Portland Metro area. This exciting milestone shines a light on our enduring mission and purpose. Although the world has changed dramatically since the 1940s, we continue to strive to even the playing field for young people who lack access to critical services and options. We also continue to stifle the notion that kids living with adversity cannot succeed and prosper alongside their peers. They can, and they do, as proven through decades of stories from countless alumni who credit the Boys & Girls Clubs for setting them on paths to great futures. Helping to improve the lives of young people in our community has turned out to be some of the most challenging, exhilarating, important, and soul-filling work I have ever done (next to raising my children!). Working alongside talented and dedicated staff, and having the steadfast support from some of this community’s most respected leaders, is an honor and a privilege. Such commitment and compassion only fuels my eagerness to shine attention on the needs of thousands of kids we serve each year and to open new doors in communities that need us most. As we head into the next 70 years, we look back and reflect with heartfelt gratitude on everyone who has played a role in building this organization. Without our staff, Board, volunteers, donors, and community partners, we would not be where we are today; we would not be celebrating the measurable impact our Clubs have had on thousands of children over 70 years; and we would not be able to share a collective vision of hope and success for our youth for the next 70 years. Cheers to you all - I am so excited for what the future holds and can’t imagine doing it without you!

Erin Hubert, CEO Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metro 4

NG TOWARD THE FUTURE Being the Chair of the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metro during the organization’s 70th Anniversary is an honor for me. This is a significant milestone for an organization that was inspired back in 1946 by public servants with a desire to redirect the activities of young boys after school. As I have dedicated my life to a career in law enforcement, I hold a tremendous amount of pride knowing that the spirit of one of Portland’s most historic and successful youth development programs – The Boys & Girls Clubs – was imagined by police officers looking to provide options for young people with a steadfast commitment to their safety and success. My commitment to the Clubs is deeply personal. This organization has played an instrumental role in shaping my career and who I am today. My roots go directly back to the Lents Club, now the Wattles Club, in southeast Portland. As I finished up college, I volunteered as a Big Brother at the Club in the early 1980s. I went on to be a counselor, a program manager and coach, then had the privilege of being the Club Director. What I learned and what I took with me as I entered into law enforcement, was the incredibly positive impact the Clubs have on redirecting the lives of those kids that lack access to services and opportunities. As a police officer, I have come in contact with kids who really needed the Clubs, and yet did not or could not access them. I can only imagine the difference it would have made in their lives. Boys & Girls Clubs play a defining role in helping young people in our community grow up to be caring and responsible community members. To me, there is no better return on investment than an investment in the lives and the future of our youngest citizens. To my fellow Board members, the staff and volunteers at the Clubs, it is an honor to serve alongside you. To the countless individuals, businesses, foundations and government organizations that provide the critically needed resources to keep the Clubs going, thank you for your continued investment. To the parents, family members and guardians, our continued respect for what you do every day to provide the care and direction for your children. And most importantly, to all our Club members, we are all here for you. You are the future and we are tremendously proud of each and every one of you. Congratulations to Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metro for 70 years of service to youth!

I think every community would benefit from having a Boys & Girls Club.

The Boys & Girls Club is an antidote for that, helping kids find their positive identity, tap into, and develop their passions.”

JOE WALSH Joe Walsh started his career at the Inukai Family Boys & Girls Club while he was attending college. He became the first Club Director at the JWR Club in Camas and worked for the organization for nine years before joining Gang Prevention Taskforce with the City of Gresham.

Today, The Rockwood community faces critical challenges that place youth at tremendous risk. With the largest concentration of youth under the age of 18 within the metro region, Rockwood has led the state for lowest academic performance, largest concentration of registered child welfare cases, and arguably the highest incidences of crime in our region’s history. The City of Gresham envisions a new Boys & Girls Club in Rockwood as a catalyst for change in this critically underserved community. Follow the progress at

Partnerships are incredibly important, and when you look to those partnerships, you look for programs that have a track record of making a positive difference in kids’ lives. Boys & Girls Clubs have been doing that for a long time. The fact that the Boys & Girls Clubs will come into our community to build a building that will build community is pretty encouraging to our residents.”

I’ve strengthened my social skills a lot. I’ve also learned how to have fun. I mean, I’ve had fun before. But I’ve never had this kind of fun where you play with other people.” Sam 13 YEARS OLD, JWR CLUB

I used to not be able to go to the dentist. Now, the Club has dentists and eye doctors come in once a year. It’s because I told Rachel one time that I couldn’t go to the doctor, so she brought it here so I could experience that.” Mayra 15 YEARS OLD, INUKAI FAMILY CLUB

When I was in some pretty dark places, the Club really helped me. They always care about your life, and what you do, and what happens to you. I’d be in trouble without the Club.” Teya 16 YEARS OLD, REGENCE CLUB

“I started the kids at Boys & Girls Club when I had to go through a drug treatment program…now three years later, I graduated from PCC as a certified nurse’s assistant. Boys & Girls Club allowed me to go eight hours of school, downtown Portland, every day, and I was able to have faith that my kids would be okay.” Shelly PARENT, INUKAI FAMILY CLUB

“I’ve learned to accept other people’s differences, like cultural or religious. It’s just fun to come here and be with your friends and it’s not like in the streets. It’s positive. You’re safe here.” Clayton 16 YEARS OLD, BLAZERS CLUB

“I love the Boys & Girls Club. I love the staff here. You know, they treat us like family. I can come in and talk to them about anything. And I just feel so comfortable. They make me feel comfortable with leaving my children here with them.” Jackie PARENT, BLAZERS CLUB


-Sam, 13 year old at the JWR Club

“The Wattles Boys & Girls Club has made me who I am today. When I entered high school, I didn’t think I’d go to college. Now I’m a senior and I’ve been accepted to two four-year universities.” Bryan Gastelum-Plata 2015 OREGON STATE YOUTH OF THE YEAR
