2018
Dear Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous Supporter:
April is here and we're having a great start!

This week we are open during spring break, having lots of fun at the Club.
And next week we are participating in the National Boys & Girls Club Week, celebrating with other Clubs across the country,  A PLACE TO BECOME!!! 

We are able to shine a light on our wonderful Youth Development Professionals, through National Boys & Girls Club Week.

All of our staff are dedicated and caring, with a passion for youth and the positive place that the Club is. Every day, magical moments take place through our blue doors, and our program staff are at the heart of what it means to be a part of the Boys & Girls Club, whether through one-on-one mentoring, a game of basketball, or a community service project. I invite you to come join us in celebrating our Youth Development Professionals, as well as all things Boys & Girls Club by taking a tour next week during our Boys & Girls Club Week,  April 9th-13th , 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm.  If you would like to take a tour of the Club, please feel free to call our Administrative Office at  (530) 220-5055  to schedule a time. Come witness how our staff help us truly make the Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous the Place to Become.

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.
