Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania is embarking on a journey to   ReMEMBER,   ReIMAGINE,   ReINVEST   in our programs, position and place in the region. Nothing is more important than hearing your voice and incorporating it into the life-changing programs we’re designing. We will discuss our everyday impact and longer-term strategies to ensure all youth in our region have great futures by engaging in a series of human centered design activities. These community sessions will be essential in forming our theory of change for the future which will lead to the development of new/renovated sites & programs, sustaining existing programs and
expanding our impact.
We are calling on all parents/guardians, youth, government officials, community leaders & advocates, funders, higher education, K-12 school personnel, early childhood leaders, current BGCWPA staff and representatives from Boys & Girls Clubs of America to join us in the strategic planning process!

Parents who attend will be entered into a drawing after each session for a $100 grocery store gift card.

ReMEMBER.....  a 131-year-old organization that has and will continue to meet the needs of children, teens, young adults and their families in the neighborhoods that need it most.

ReIMAGINE..... our programs, the future of the youth we serve, and the growth of our region.

ReINVEST..... as alumni, volunteers, and community members in Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania to ensure a GREAT FUTURE for the next generation!
