Our Impact

WE’RE MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT, WITH MEASURABLE RESULTS
 
A Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Georgia Membership Changes Lives
 
The proof is in the numbers!
 
A recent program evaluation was undertaken by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Georgia to gather detailed information about the strengths and weaknesses of various programs.
 
Some notable results are:
 
94% of members enrolled in our after school program moved ahead to their next grade level
89% of members attended school with 2 or fewer absences each 9 weeks
95% of members enrolled in our after school program completed all daily homework assignments
85% of members understood the importance of good health and regular exercise
87% of members scored 70% or better on standardized tests for their grade level

In every community, many boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and 
companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision, especially in the after school hours between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. Young people need postive alternatives.
 
At the Boys & Girls Club, young people explore and develop their talents.  Boys and girls aged 6-18, who might otherwise be on the streets, are engaged in life-enhancing programs that are proven to help them grow into responsible, productive adults.
Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. The average member at B&GCCG spends 10 hours a week in life-enhancing program.
