Ballard Boys and Girls Club

http://ballardbgc.countmein.com

 

The mission of the Ballard Boys & Girls Club is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. The youth development strategy builds successful character development by integrating Club programs and services to promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling:

  • A sense of competence - the feeling there is something boys and girls can do
    and do well.

  • A sense of usefulness - the opportunity to do something of value for other people.

  • A sense of belonging - a setting where an individual knows he or she has a place
    and where he or she "fits" and is accepted.

  • A sense of power of influence - a chance to be heard and to influence decisions

When this strategy is fully implemented, the self-esteem of girls and boys is enhanced and an environment is created which helps them achieve their full potential.

The Goodman Foundation is a Silver Level donor and has provided a general grant to benefit the Ballard Boys & Girls Club and their great efforts.
