‘Formula for Impact’ is an adopted strategy created by our National Headquarters and serves as a roadmap for Clubs to help ensure that members achieve our 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
It also incorporates high-yield learning activities, targeted programs and regular attendance. We incorporate this model to achieve success.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sun Corridor focuses on five core program areas that help youth develop a positive self identity, educational competencies and the values enabling them to develop positive relationships with others. Youth with these capacities can become responsible citizens and leaders who make meaningful contributions and live successful lives.
Our Targeted Programs:
Enables youth to develop creativity and visual awareness through knowledge and appreciation of visual and tactile arts and crafts, performing arts, and creative writing.
Character and Leadership Development:
Empowers youth to support and influence their Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships with others, 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 optimize their chances of employment.
Health and Life Skills:
develops young people’s capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals, and acquire the skills to live successfully as self-sufficient adults.
Sports, Fitness, and Recreation:
Promotes physical fitness, positive use of leisure time, skills for stress management, appreciation for the environment, and social and interpersonal skills.
