  • Mission:
  • The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Thurston County (BGCTC) is to inspire and enable youth to realize their greatness. Since our founding in 2001, we have provided community-based Clubs that are safe and positive places for kids to go after school and during school breaks. Our five Clubs work to ensure youth stay on the right path, avoid getting into trouble with the law and don't fall behind or drop out of school. With a strong track record of assisting kids who need us most – including those from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances. Club programs help bolster academic proficiency and raise the likelihood of graduation and having plans for being prepared for life after high school.

  • Overview:
  • BGCTC serves over 3,000 youth with engaging and fully-integrated activities and programs. With support from highly trained and dedicated youth development staff and over 100 volunteer tutors and mentors, programs and services at the Club help bridge the gap in affordable and engaging after-school options as well as the availability of high-yield activities to youth who might not otherwise have access.

    Approximately 47% of BGCTC members come from low-income families and 47% are from diverse cultural backgrounds. In September 2016, the Tenino Boys & Girls Club became the fifth Thurston County Club joining locations in Lacey, Tumwater, Olympia and Rochester.

    Boys & Girls Clubs work to help create model citizens for our future and our goal is to ensure each of our members graduate from high school with a plan to continue their education while making positive contributions to their community. We serve children in five core program areas: Character & Leadership; Education & Career Development; Health & Life Skills; the Arts; and Sports, Fitness & Recreation. We teach the values of responsibility and respect while the youth we serve engage in wholesome and fun activities that build self-esteem and self-worth. The mentorship and programming kids receive help them become empowered to make wise and educated life choices.

    This grant request is for one of the Health & Life Skills programs in place at our Clubs: SMART (Skills Mastery and Resistance Training) Girls.

  • History:
  • Since we opened our doors, our Clubs have served youth in grades K-12 with Club locations in Lacey, Tumwater, Olympia, Rochester and Tenino. We opened our doors for the first time to 45 kids in what was once the bus drivers’ lounge on the campus of Tumwater High School. The total number of Club members in Thurston County has skyrocketed from 166 members in 2001 to over 3,000 in 2016. BGCTC have accomplished a great deal in its first 15 years of operation:
    - 75% of youth leave the Club every day with their homework complete.
    - 97% of Club members are on track for on-time high school graduation.
    - 88% of Club members have a plan for post-secondary education that includes college, trade school or the military.
    - 67% of alumni report that the Club saved their life.
    - 51% of members said they feel safer at the Club than they do at other places.

    During the last Washington state BGC Alumni survey, research showed that more than 90% of Club alumni graduated from high school (exceeding our local, state and county non-Club average of 70%). In fact, 86% of Washington State Club Alumni said that the Clubs helped them graduate from high school and 35% said they would not have gone to college had it not been for the Club.

    The Clubs had a particularly beneficial impact on members’ attitudes toward education: 66% strongly or somewhat agree that they became more committed to their education because of the Club. Perhaps most remarkable, two-thirds (67%) agree that the Club saved their life for a variety of reasons: the Club was a positive place to go after-school; they were provided with opportunities they never thought they would have; they developed an open mind and received guidance to seek a college education.
