OUR MISSION The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Lane County is to benefit all youth ages 6-18 by inspiring and enabling them to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring individuals. Over 500 area youth are served annually with over 100 daily visits and 50% of our members living in low income homes. No child is refused membership due to economic status. THE CLUB AND ITS MEMBERS Our Club operates on a year-round basis. By providing programs after school, on weekends, during the summer and school vacation periods, we build the trust of our youth, enabling them to depend on the Club and its activities. A wide range of adult-supervised activities and services are offered, all for a minimal $25 annual fee. If for some reason the youth of their family can not provide the annual fee, scholarships are available. No youngster is ever turned away for failing to meet the $25 membership fee. FIVE CORE PROGRAM AREAS CHARACTER AND LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT empowers youth to support and influence their Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships with other, develop a positive self-image, participate in the democratic process, and respect their own and others' cultural identities. EDUCATION AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT enables youth to become proficient in basic educational disciplines, apply learning to everyday situations, and embrace technology to achieve success in a career. HEALTH AND LIFE SKILLS develops young people to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals, and live successfully as self-sufficient adults. THE ARTS enables youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, crafts, performing arts, and creative writing. SPORTS, FITNESS, AND RECREATION develops fitness, positive use of leisure time, skills for stress management, appreciation for the environment, and social skills.
