Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous E-Newsletter



2018
Dear Parents and Guardians of the Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous:

 
We have started 2018 at full speed with new programs and new members. Three of our most exciting programs are Torch Club on Wednesdays for 6th through 8th grades, where they learn leadership skills and spend time helping the community; Passport to Manhood, where boys discuss issues important and unique to them; and Smart Girls, a similar program for girls. 

Our garden program has already begun and is seeing results! Sunflower seeds that were planted January 1st have begun to sprout.

Supper Club is going well and meals are served during Power Hour, while snacks are provided later for those who stay.  Many of the meals and snacks are prepared by members in our cooking class.  As part of our Guest Chef program, Chef Steve Hector from Mt. Shasta Pastry came to the Club and taught the 6th, 7th and 8th graders how to make omelets. Thanks Steve!

 
School is out on Mondays, February 12 and 19, but the Club is open from 1 to 7pm. Hope to see you there!

We would like to thank those parents and others who have donated so generously to the Club, both financially and in-kind. BGCS now has a piano, many new art supplies, an air hockey table, and more materials for other programs. Our Club is lucky to have supporters like you!

If you have any questions about our programs or anything about the Club please don't hesitate to ask me or any of our dedicated staff.

Sincerely,

Noam Zimin, Executive Director
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Siskiyous

In the Life of a Child     

Have a special skill? Some time to give? Nothing makes a larger impact on a child than having a positive adult to look up to. No matter if it is 1 hour a week, 4 hours every day, or even just something special for 1 time only, Boys & Girls Club volunteers make a huge impact on Members. Contact Noam if you're interested in volunteering at noam@bgcsiskiyous.org

AcrossTheMovement


Boys & Girls Clubs is a Global Movement, Meeting Local Needs!   
Boys & Girls Clubs serve more than 4 MILLION youth every year, in over 4,200 independent organizations across the country, and on military installations around the world. This type of National to Local relationship gives Clubs the strength of a vast network of resources, talent, knowledge, and branding, while maintaining the flexibility to meet the incredibly diverse needs of every neighborhood where Clubs are located. With millions of youth reached every year, and hundreds of millions that have walked through Club doors since the first Club opened in 1860, Boys & Girls Clubs truly are life changing places.
