Boys & Girls Clubs of the Siskiyous E-Newsletter

Dear Friends of Boys & Girls Clubs of the Siskiyous:
We've come a long way in a short time, and I'm happy to announce that we are opening our Club doors in Mt Shasta at Sisson Middle School, June 12th, 2017! I want to personally thank all who showed up at meetings, emailed, and spent hours volunteering in committees and organizing people, our ideas, and visions for how we want to create opportunity for children in Siskiyou County. Without you and your support, we wouldn't have been able to do this.

While we take a moment to celebrate our achievement of getting this far, our work is just beginning. Right now we are in the process of hiring an amazing staff for our summer and school year. We currently have four part-time positions remaining open, and one full-time Director position open. If you know any candidates that might be a good fit as a staff person in a youth program, please forward my contact information to them: or 530-220-5055.

I hope you will help continue the progress we've made by volunteering your time, talents, and treasures as we approach opening day, and beyond. Below you will find our FIRST issue of an e-newsletter geared to tell our story, praise youth's achievements, and show the community where we need their help. It takes everyone coming together to achieve our goals for young people, develop the next generation of leaders that make our community a place we're all proud of, and enliven the slogan of Boys & Girls Clubs, that in Mt. Shasta, Great Futures Start HERE!

Thank you students from College of the Siskiyous for organizing a wiffleball event for youth THIS SUNDAY, May 7th at 12pm at the Mt Shasta Youth Sports Park near Sisson Middle School. This event is being planned and executed as part of their Marketing course. The students decided they wanted to not only meet the requirements for their project, but at the same time create an event that promotes the new Boys & Girls Clubs of the Siskiyous opening in June. Thank you students for all your hard work!

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.

See Where Other Clubs are Located - Moving? Have family elsewhere? Having a Club and safe space where kids feel comfortable is a great way to help children in the challenging time of transitions.


We envision healthy, empowered and engaged youth who appreciate and respect  themselves, each other, their families, the community and the environment.
We empower youth to reach their full potential as responsible, caring and productive citizens through professionally led programs and activities that are fun, positive and relevant in a safe, supportive and healthy environment.
