Our Message – Mark Barrett, President and Rashell Brobst, CEO

Dear Friends,

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the North Valley is celebrating YOU. We are delighted to share the impact our Clubs have been able to make this past year because of you. In every Club in our region, each and every day, we have achieved many mission moments of success – A youth with severe anger issues self-directs himself to our safe space for him. A child shares their first A on a test they received at school. A parent shares that their child is showing signs of improved respect and behavior. These magical moments are possible because of you! Thank you so much for believing in our youth and please enjoy this annual report that celebrates your investment in our kids.

As donors, volunteers and champions, your gifts are investments in our work and they enable us to create new programs to meet the needs of our children. Your investment is even more important during a time when we are experiencing reduced local government funding amid rising costs. Your gifts allow us to respond to the alarming and increasing needs of local youth with innovative programs that go beyond the average youth program and help break the cycle of negative behavior for good.

We are more grateful than ever to have friends like you by our side. In the coming year, we hope to help more children and their families by continuing to improve our existing programs, exploring new services, making new friends and appreciating the long-lasting ones. The problems kids face today can affect them for their entire lives. With your help, we are solving these day-to-day challenges at home, at school and in their daily lives to help them thrive.

Though we are focused on the big picture, we know that it is often the little, daily accomplishments that have the biggest impact. Thank you for making these moments possible; we hope that you will continue to ensure that we are a consistent daily support network for the most vulnerable youth in our communities.

With gratitude,

P.S. Please come by and have our youth give you a tour to see the magic that happens every day at the Boys & Girls Clubs of the North Valley!
