What an amazing organization, the way they help kids and keep them off the streets is unmatched. They have done so much for the community I live in, they give kids a second chance and try to make the most out of those second chances.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing kids change there attitudes over just a few weeks of attending. These kids are so much nicer and seem to care about the community after they attend the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing.

As a volunteer of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis I get to work with these kids on conflict resolution and how to act when things get heated between another people. It is amazing the changes you see in kids who attend these classes on a regular basis vs. the kids who don’t attend on a regular basis. The kids that attend on a regular basis make huge strides in their overall social skills and behavior. They seem to have a general understanding of what is happening, when the argument is escalating and when their words no longer are working. At this point the next step is very critical, will kids to turn to violence or will they make smarter decisions with non-confrontational results. It is the amazing the type of results that we see with these kids and the impact in their life.

As a volunteer at the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis I work with at risk youth every day I am at the Club. I see kids come into the clubs and see adults leave. It is amazing the social touch points we have with these kids and what we teach them everyday at the clubs. We get talk about right from wrong, why drugs are bad and just because your parents didn't go to college doesn't mean you can't. It truly is an honor to be a part of such a wonderful group.

Watching kids who don't get to eat food at home and watch them eat food at the club and get healthier. It is a great feeling to provide a child with their only meal of the day, otherwise they would go hungry. I feel like I make a difference.

I would get more volunteers involved because once you work with these kids for one day you feel better about yourself. Plus the club needs all the help it can get.

As an employee of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis I am fortunate enough to deal with kids on a consistent basis. I am lucky to schedule speaking engagements for some of these kids and I get to witness what these kids can accomplish if they are given the chance. When you listen to the stories these kids tell and they explain how their social lives are at home or with friends, it makes you want to give every second you have to helping. Each kid has such a unique story and being able to provide each kid with opportunity or hope is an amazing feeling. I am excited to wake up every day and head to work just to help this kids and provide them with a skill set they may have not had before.

Every kid I come in contact with, each kid has an amazing story of triumph. To see their faces when they talk about where they have been in the past and where they are today because of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis, it is heart warming.

Not a thing, this club is an amazing place to work and volunteer.

I am a volunteer at the Wheeler-Dowe Club and can say that I have seen a drastic change in several our youth’s lives since I started volunteering 3 years ago. I have watched kids who seemed lost find their paths at Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis. Most of these kids had been given up by their teachers and communities and had no where left to turn. Because of the work done at Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis I have watched over 15 kids this past school year go from wanting or being forced to drop out to finishing high school and now looking for college opportunities. It has been such a wonderful feeling working with these kids.

The Great!

Watching kids accept their college diploma's instead of failing out of school. Nothing has touched my heart like watching one of these kids grab their diploma from high school as they walk across the stage.

I would add more clubs so they can help more kids. They work well with so many kids it would be great if they had more space to provide assistance for more kids.

As a former member of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis, I am proud to say that what this organization has done for me cannot be put into words. The training and education that I received from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis as allowed me to become a productive member of the Indianapolis Community and taught me lessons about giving back. Not only did it steer me away from gangs and drug usage it also taught me how to be successful in school and work. I owe everything I have to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis.

As a volunteer with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis I have worked with close to 300 kids over the summer. While working with these kids I have seen improvements in these kids’ attitudes and overall feelings on life. It was amazing the first moment I stepped in a club and how quickly you to help all of these kids. Each kid wants to learn and when given the proper resources they flourish.

The Great!

Watching the kids interact with adults or outside members during field trips.

Provide more funding, they work with 8,800 kids a year and do such a great job. If I could change anything it would be the amount of money I could donate.
