We never take a single approach to help kids succeed, it takes:
For 70 years, we've done whatever it takes to ensure all kids have a great future.
The ever-evolving pandemic has made life more difficult for kids, combined with bullying in school and online, racial unrest, and the systemic inequalities they face daily. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, poor mental health had reached a crisis level in Washington. All of this threatens their stability and well-being. When kids don't feel safe or healthy, they can't learn, grow, or develop resiliency that will aid them throughout their lives.
At BGCB, Kids and teens know they can rely on safe, consistent, and welcoming environments full of caring mentors who recognize mental health is essential to overall healthy development. Whether it's after-school, summer, a schools-out-day, or a game at Hidden Valley, we're doing whatever it takes to ensure the youth who come to our Clubs achieve social, emotional, and physical wellness.
