Results:
The Boys & Girls Club of Souhegan Valley grew its membership to over 760 kids between the ages of 6 and 18, an increase of over 60% vs. the previous year.
We reached over an additional 1,000 children through outreach and cultural arts programs.
We welcomed an average of 140 members each day after school. 70% of these kids attended 3 or more times a week. An additional 20‐40 kids and teens attended evening programs each week.
Thanks to our generous supporters, we were able to insure those who need us most were able to join and participate by providing over 200% more in scholarship dollars than just one year ago!
367 kids attended our summer camp program this past summer (2010), an average of 150 kids each day. Almost 30% of these kids were able to attend because of the generosity of supporters who provided scholarship funds.
To support our focus on academic performance, Power Hour (homework help) became mandatory for all kids afterschool. Staff and volunteers provided over 800 hours of homework help during the school year.
Our first college road trip visited 12 colleges to examine the many ways in which educational institutions differ in their delivery of education, and to explore what really matters in a search to find the college that best “fits.”
We focused on literacy programs, including building and stocking a new teen library and implementing reading incentives thanks to a grant from Wal-mart.
Working in partnership with the Wadleigh Memorial Library our members read 364 books during summer camp!
We hosted Title I reading programs for the Milford School District during the summer months to help fami-lies access these important resources.
Our Keystone Club (teen service and leadership club) attended its first regional leadership conference last fall. Members performed several community service projects throughout the year, including health kits for Haiti, a toy drive for the Nashua Children’s Home, letters to service men and women in Iraq, fundraising support and event support for the Boys & Girls Club, and several community clean-up projects.
Our CIT (Counselor-in-Training) program grew from 9 teens two years ago to 42 teens this year. These teens learned leadership skills, social skills, and received one-on-one mentoring during the summer. Many of these kids continue to volunteer at the Club.
We worked to develop additional youth leadership opportunities, creating youth-led initiatives ranging from fundraising dinner theater events to a main stage theater production of Godspell, Jr. Kids produced, di-rected, choreographed, staged, acted, and promoted these events, learning valuable leadership and communication skills.
