Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington’s (BGCGW) 12 sites—covering a territory of 75 miles around Washington, DC that stretches from Manassas to Germantown—serve as safe havens for their members. The Clubs are open when schools are not, and provide a safe, comfortable, and fun alternative to youth who would otherwise be home alone or on the street. Over 1,200 youth attend the Clubs for activities every day, to see their friends, and to spend time with positive and encouraging adults.
They serve the region’s kids and teens through Formula for Impact, an adopted strategy created by their National Headquarters and serves as a roadmap for Clubs to help ensure that members achieve priority outcomes of Academic Success, Good Character and Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles.
It represents the five key elements for positive youth development:
- A safe, positive environment
- Supportive relationships
- Opportunities and expectations
