LASTING IMPACT 2017 Annual Report

Lasting values make great futures possible Our kids – the kids you help on a daily basis – are a resilient bunch. Most know someone who’s met a violent death. Some are in families struggling to find food and shelter. Our kids endure. More often than not it is with a smile. But survival alone isn’t enough. We want our kids to thrive. Your support enables us to help instill those values that we believe are critical to helping our youth overcome obstacles and lead productive lives. We hope you will read the stories in “Lasting Impact,” our annual report for 2017, to get an even better understanding of the difference you are making as a supporter of Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland. Your impact is huge. You serve the kids who need us most, and the long-term results are nothing short of astonishing. A Harris Survey determined that 54% of our alumni said the Club saved their lives. So when you are reading about Mia the budding student, Kenvontae the aspiring nurse or Rikki the successful college student, remember that none of those stories would be possible without the support of people like you. You are ensuring that our kids have a shot at great futures. Thank you. Sincerely,

Ron Soeder President and CEO

MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS

It is not unfair to say Shyanne Beard, 26, has been on her own since birth. Born to a 19-year-old mother, she spent most of her life caring for her siblings and her mom, who died in early 2018. Yet she became a star athlete, a college graduate and a four-year Towlift Inc. employee. She credits two things for her success: “The Club and Mr. Soeder.”

money – everything. “ And it was what she calls her “magical relationship” with BGCC President and CEO Ron Soeder that kept her on a positive path, even when things were bleak.

“It’s so great to have someone in your corner. It’s special.”

Shyanne says the Club “gave me opportunities in education, sports and even how to manage my

“He’s like a second dad to me,” says Shyanne, a Notre Dame College graduate who is now a training assistant at Towlift. “He treats me as if I’m his daughter. Even now, he keeps up with me and wants to know how I’m doing. It’s so great to have someone in your corner. It’s special.”

Club initiatives promote positive paths forward One of our greatest challenges is helping kids make good decisions as they mature. Your donations make it possible for Club youth to develop good character and self-esteem. Our Clubs have two programs – one for boys, one for girls – that specifically target leadership, health, character and self-esteem. Passport to Manhood encourages boys ages 8-14 to develop and mature into young men. This interactive program focuses on specific aspects of character and manhood and includes a community service project. SMART Girls helps girls in three age groups, spanning the ages of 8-18, to eat right, stay physically fit, get good health care and develop positive relationships with peers and adults.

COMMUNITY COMMITMENTS

John Killings’ mother taught him to be grateful for what he has.

“I’m not a celebrity. I am someone who looks like them and someone who has been where they are now,” says John, who She instilled in John and his twin brother is the associate director of multicultural the value of sharing their leadership and programming abundance with folks in at Case Western Reserve their Mount Pleasant University and a member neighborhood that of BGCC’s Bridge Board, 84% of regular weren’t as fortunate. a young professionals They would give Club members group. “I can give back clothes and shoes by giving my time to believe they can to kids that didn’t these kids, and that is have them.

So it is not surprising that when John, now 30, realized how much he had benefited from the Club experience, he became a mentor for some of the kids who are following in his footsteps.

“I learned the value of hard work, dedication and encouragement,” he says. “I learned the value of going after your dreams.”

Community service projects help kids see larger picture Your support has afforded members of our Torch Club, a teen leadership group, the opportunity to transport bottled water to their counterparts in Flint, Mich., a city without safe drinking water. Water delivery is just one aspect of the trip: Our teens love interacting with other Club members. Kids do the legwork, but donors make the delivery possible. Here’s how BGCC member D’Angelus Williams described the trip this way: “Overall, it’s been a good experience for (our members) to witness barriers you may encounter in life and learn to overcome those challenges. Giving back has been a good way to let (the kids in Flint) know people still care about them.” The Flint trip is one of dozens of community service projects undertaken by our two leadership groups, the Torch and Keystone Clubs. They include neighborhood cleanups and collection drives to help hurricane victims in Houston and Puerto Rico.

TRANSFORMED PERSPECTIVES

Kenvontae Jackson has faced a lot of uncertainty in his young life.

His family moved. He changed schools. He lost friends. His house burned down. His brother is serving a 64-year prison sentence. Once, during a neighborhood gunfight, he was pulled to safety by a relative who had one arm around Kenvontae while using the other to fire his weapon.

Tae, now 17, was chosen for a summer internship with the Northeast Ohio Research Education Medicine Alliance, an innovative collaboration between Cleveland Clinic, Cuyahoga Community College and Kent State University. Tae wants to become a registered nurse.

In a poll of alumni, 54% said Boys & Girls Clubs saved their lives.

But Tae, as he is known to friends, is determined not to be dragged down by negative experiences. HARRIS SURVEY He has found a second home at the Club, where he is a leader, a junior staff member and a kid who takes advantage of opportunities. One of those opportunities came in 2017, when

“(Nursing) is something I really want to do, and the internship was great,” he says.

None of this would have happened if Tae hadn’t challenged his own initial thoughts that the Club “was just another rec center. It is so much more. It is somewhere you want to be. It shows you what you want to be in life.”

Exposure to the arts gives our kids an edge Last year, 2,013 kids participated in our Club arts programs, which include music, dance, art, graphic arts, fashion design, ballet and drama. Our members have these opportunities because of generous individuals, corporations and foundations as well as the support of several key creative associations, including Cuyahoga Arts & Culture and the Ohio Arts Council. Our Young Souls Jazz Band has performed at a number of top local venues, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Gateway Plaza, and has made “tour” stops in Detroit and Chicago. Arts exposure is critical to learning, and Club kids have extraordinary creative opportunities. In addition to the Club offerings, kids can learn how to play instruments and record music at the Notes for Notes recording studio at our Broadway Club.

LEADERSHIP QUALITIES

Growing up, Rikki Kyle never sought the spotlight. Rikki, now 19, says leadership “was something I wasn’t really sure I was interested in.” That all changed when Rikki, who lives in East Cleveland and graduated from Beaumont School, began accepting leadership roles at her Club and in the Ohio Youth Leadership Council.

Today, Rikki is a sophomore at American University in Washington, D.C., where she is majoring in public relations and strategic communications management and is director of diversity and inclusiveness for the university’s Public Relations Society of America chapter. She still works at the Club during summer break – and uses what she’s learned to connect with kids.

“I could be a voice and a supplier of information in my own community.”

“It became apparent that I could be a voice and a supplier of information in my own community,” says Rikki, who became a Club junior staff member, president of the charactercentered Keystone Club and the first editor of Club News, a newspaper written by members.

“Communication is huge – learning how to adjust and adapt,” she says. “At the Club, it is never the same from one day to the next and from one kid to the next. Not every kid receives information the same way.”

Youth of the Year competition brings out the best in our kids Your dollars help develop a new generation of leaders. Our signature effort to promote leadership is the Youth of the Year competition. Each year, nominees from our Club sites are chosen based on moral character, community involvement, academic achievements and obstacles they have overcome. Our recent BGCC winners are already making their marks. 2017 Youth of the Year Miryne Thomas produced in the classroom and on the court at the University of Maryland-Eastern Shore, where he was named to the basketball all-conference rookie team. 2018 winner Tamara Thomas (no relation to Miryne) went on to become Ohio Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year and enroll at Xavier University. Tamara says, “The most valuable thing I received at (the Club) was a chance to find myself and figure out who I want to be in life.”


LASTING IMPACT

LIFELONG LEARNING

Mia Almodovar remembers her feelings when she arrived in Cleveland in 2016. “It hurt,” says soft-spoken Mia, now 9, who was born in Puerto Rico. “I was separated from my family.” She knew a little English, thanks to a bilingual teacher back home.

She did. And Mia’s world changed for the better. “I learned to play with other people. I practiced my English. I read books. I learned that you don’t bully,” Mia says.

In 2017, 868 of our Club members were in programs targeting summer learning loss.

Not enough English, however, to feel comfortable in her new surroundings. Not enough to keep up with her classmates in school. Not enough to make her feel like she fit in. Then she received a tip from a friend: “Go to the Boys & Girls Club. They have lots of things to do.”

Every day, Club staffers help Mia with her English and reading. She has made new friends and discovered new interests, including art and playing with slime. The Club’s Power Hour – the study period at the start of each day – has also helped improve her school work. “When I get homework,” she says, “I do it here. It is the best place for me.”

Reality Store gives teens lesson in financial literacy What should my household budget look like? What is the difference between what I want and what I need? And what do I do when I run into an unexpected expense? Thanks to your support, our Club teens get a trial run at answering these questions without consequences before they have to do so in real life. Financial literacy is at the core of the Reality Store, an interactive, station-to-station program for Club members that is funded by the Charles Schwab Foundation and also supported by individual donors. Teens draw a “salary” based on a specific career and manage basic living expenses for themselves and a family. They envision the lifestyle they would like to have in their late 20s, explore a career, receive a checking account “deposit” equal to one month’s salary, and spend their salary in the Reality Store on necessities and extras. They also handle some of life’s unexpected events and discover whether their occupation provides the financial resources needed in order to sustain the lifestyle they want. Says Schwab volunteer Katie Kennedy, “As the teens get an idea of actual costs of living you can see when it clicks. They come away from the experience more conscious of their spending habits and making more realistic plans for the future.”

Club farm program is growing entrepreneurs Did you know you are an investor in one of the largest Boys & Girls Club horticultural operations in the nation? Your donations help support our Broadway Club farm, where each year 10 members learn how to grow food on the property and sell it throughout Greater Cleveland. In addition, these paid teen workers learn how to be entrepreneurs. Kids grow produce in on-site gardens and greenhouses and then sell the items at Cleveland-area farmers markets. In addition, they do a host of landscaping projects at the Broadway Club, including tree-planting initiatives, lawn maintenance and planting-bed upkeep. This program is a great entry point for those wanting to start a business. It gives our kids a chance to master the five key parts of entrepreneurship, which are planning, risk-taking, sales and marketing, communication and problem-solving skills.

Thanks, Circle of Champions, for providing hope and opportunity A big reason why our Clubs make a lasting impact is the ongoing, deep commitment of our Circle of Champions, a special group of supporters who have made significant financial contributions to our mission. Such commitments are vital to the ongoing success of nonprofits like Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland. The unwavering support of our Champions makes it possible for us to provide opportunities to the kids who need us most at the time they need us most -- the four-hour period after school lets out each day. We thank our Circle of Champions for believing in our mission, our work and our kids.

Couple’s legacy will include caring for kids who need us most A question from a fellow airline passenger 20 years ago changed Mike Shydlowski’s life. “What are you doing,” the man asked, “to give back to the community?” Shydlowski, a chemical company executive, paused, said to himself, “Right now, not much.” The passenger turned out to be a Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland executive who invited Shydlowski to tour a Club. He took the tour and was hooked. Shydlowski, now retired, and his wife Marsha became fierce advocates for the kids who need us most. They have now pledged to help coming generations by being among the first to join Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland’s Great Futures Society, a group of BGCC supporters who have included the Clubs in their wills and estate plans. The Aurora couple is urging others to consider Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland in their wills. “This is important because we believe in Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland and want its good work to continue long after we are gone,” Marsha says. “We want to be able to help even more kids.” Mike says, “Think about what you want to leave as a legacy. What if you can do something after you pass, that your resources can help kids years from now, beyond your time on earth?” The Shydlowskis, who met while both were students at Marquette University, have told their two children and three grandchildren they are including BGCC in their will. “We have been generous in helping our kids and grandkids, and they are well aware of it,” Mike says. “We figure there may be people who may need the money even more. We’re very comfortable with that.”

Ensuring success for generations to come These founding members of our Great Futures Society are making it possible for future generations of children to reach their full potential in a safe, positive and caring environment. We are deeply grateful for their commitment.
