Today, Boys & Girls Clubs is the largest Native youth-serving agency in the nation, reaching about 90,000 Native youth in American Indian, Alaska Native, American Samoan, and Hawaiian tribal communities. With nearly 200 Clubs, Boys & Girls Clubs provide Native young people with a variety of culturally relevant, life-enhancing programs every year.
Great Futures in Native Communities
To fulfill the needs of Native youth, BGCA’s successful programs were adapted and modified to integrate Native culture to cause an impact on the lives of children and teens that attend Clubs in Native communities. While honoring Native traditions, the Native Boys & Girls Clubs serve to promote growth and development that is contrary to the risk factors these youth face.
Of the children and teens that regularly attend a Native Club:
91% of high school students are more likely to abstain from consuming alcohol
84% make mostly As or Bs
55% are likely to become involved in their community
This fund operates as a subsidiary, so there are no overhead costs and every single dollar contributed is used to meet the needs of Native Clubs. With the three primary purposes to:
Increase Native Club sustainability
Foster organizational growth
Provide technical support for all Native Clubs, including program and training resources.
