A Day in the Life…

2007 Annual Report


Our Mission

“Inspiring and enabling

all young people, especially

those who need us most,

to realize their full potential

as productive, responsible

and caring citizens.”

What Makes the Boys & Girls Club Unique?

Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club.

All are critical in exerting positive impact on the life of a child:

• Dedicated Youth Facility

The Boys & Girls Club is a place — an actual neighborhoodbased

building — designed solely for youth programs and

activities.

• Open Daily

The Club is open daily during the week, when kids have free

time and need positive, productive outlets.

• Professional Staff

Every Club has full-time, trained youth development professionals,

providing positive role models and mentors. Volunteers provide

key supplementary support.

• Available/Affordable to All Youth

Clubs reach out to kids who cannot afford, or may lack access

to, other community programs. Dues are low at $15 per year,

which can be replaced by two hours of community service upon

request.

In addition, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley

• Builds Character

The Club guides boys & girls who may be in danger of acquiring

or who already have unacceptable habits and attitudes, as well

as guiding boys & girls of good character.

• Has a Varied and Diversified Program

The Club recognizes and responds to the collective and individual

needs of young people, offering programs and services in

five core areas: Health and Life Skills, Character and Leadership

Development, The Arts, Education and Career Development and

Sports, Fitness and Recreation.

• Is Guidance-Oriented

The Club emphasizes positive values in the relationships members

have with each other and their adult leaders. It helps boys

& girls make appropriate and satisfying choices in their physical,

educational, personal, social, emotional, vocational, and spiritual

lives.

Dear Friends,

As a child, what did you dream about being when you grew up? A firefighter? President

of the United States? A parent? A doctor? An NFL star? An Olympian? Chances are,

you dreamed of being something — and maybe your dreams came true and maybe

your dreams changed as time went on, but you still dreamed and you still hoped and you still

looked forward to a future of better things yet to come.

It’s been oft repeated in recent times that the current generation of young people will be the first

generation of American citizens ever to have a lower standard of living than their predecessors.

Whether true or not, the increasingly pervasive perspective that “things are getting worse” troubles

us at the Boys & Girls Clubs. For isn’t it true that the greatest collective achievements of our

great country have been born out of challenge and sacrifice?

We don’t disagree that there are challenges ahead and facing us even right now, in fact we

know a lot about them because so many of the young people we’re privileged to serve are living

in some severely challenging circumstances right here and right now. Here at the Boys & Girls

Clubs we see these tough times and difficult circumstances as opportunities — opportunities to

grow stronger, to learn, to grow, and to fight harder for our dreams.

So each day, whether its at 3:00 a.m. in the morning through a call to our Runaway Hotline or at

3:00 p.m. when the doors to our many after school programs open, the Boys & Girls Club is

there — protecting the right of children to dream and, more importantly, giving them the support,

guidance, and opportunities they need to one day see those dreams turned into reality.

This, our 2007 Annual Report, covers a day in the life of the Boys & Girls Clubs — thank you for

taking the time to learn more about who we are and what we do. And to our many supporters,

thank you for making this day and all the others possible and for giving us hope that tomorrow

will always be something our kids can look forward to.

Warmest Regards,

Jeff Werner Greg Lemke-Rochon

2007 President, Board of Directors Chief Professional Officer


The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley

served over 12,000 of our community’s

children and youth in 2007, a number

that has grown exponentially since we first

opened our doors nearly 10 years ago. We’re

honored by the opportunity to be an important

part of the lives of so many. More importantly

though, we continued to take advantage of this

opportunity in 2007 by making a difference in

these young lives and helping kids become

productive, responsible, and caring citizens.

Why do we need a Boys & Girls Club? We certainly

heard this question a lot in our early days

for in the late 1990’s the idea of a Boys & Girls

Club to the Fox Valley was new and unfamiliar.

Yet the answer then is the same as the answer

today—kids, especially the growing numbers of

young people living in challenging circumstances,

need a safe place, they need guidance

and support from caring and professional adults,

they need diverse opportunities that challenge

them to learn and to grow, they need to be able

to have fun and socialize in an environment that

is itself diverse and stimulating, and they need to

be able to access all of this in the easiest ways

possible—daily, in convenient locations, and

with little to no financial cost involved.

In addition to our main (and now way too small!)

location near downtown Appleton, our programs

and services reach out into every community in

the Fox Cities. From fully-operational Boys &

Girls Clubs in numerous area schools to truancy

intervention services and educational and prevention

services run throughout the Fox Cities,

we strive to go wherever kids need us most.

It’s important to emphasize as well that the

growth in our services has happened because of

close working relationships with schools, law enforcement,

other community based organizations

and many other social service groups. In short,

we couldn’t do it with out our many friends

and partners.

A Day in the Life…

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley is always a busy

place, but especially so during the summer. The following timeline

depicts the Club on a typical summer day, when the Club on

Locust Street is the place to be for more than 300 children each

and every day.

7:00 a.m.

The doors open for early arrivals. For a small fee of $4.00 per child per day, parents can drop

their children off before the Club’s official opening at 9 a.m., feeling secure their kids are in a

safe place.

Parents using this service appreciate the ability to drop their children early at the Club because

many need to be at work before 8 a.m. The fee is affordable and the early drop-off eliminates

making other arrangements that would cause working parents even more stress in their busy

days.

Approximately 300 youth ages 6–18 come to the Club’s main location in downtown Appleton

during the summer, when it is open all day. During the school year, the Club is open after school

and all day when school is not in session.

From June through August, the Locust Street location is a hotbed of activity, where kids can

participate in fun and exciting programs in five areas: character and leadership development,

education and career, health and life skills, the arts, and sports,

fitness, and recreation.

Once inside the Club, kids choose an activity, and the

fun begins! Membership is just $15 a year for an

individual, or $35 for an entire family. In many

instances, the fees are waived.


4

9:00 a.m.

Breakfast is served at the Club. Kids line up for this nutritious meal, the most important of the

day. During the summer, breakfast and lunch are served daily, at no additional charge. During

the school year, a free hot evening meal is served twice a week in Kid’s Café. Complimentary

snacks are served every day. Because an estimated 80% of the members of the Boys & Girls

Clubs of the Fox Valley are from low-income families and 40% are living in poverty, these meals

are vitally important.

10:00 a.m.

It’s time for Grossology! A dozen or so kids join science teacher Mark Cross for a lesson in all

things gross. This class, one of 18 different courses that will occur this day in collaboration with

the Appleton Area School District, explores the slimy, oozy, scaly, and stinky gross (yet scientific)

things that happen every day in the human body. Other classes offered throughout the summer

include art enrichment, cultural arts and crafts, dance, movie and music making, digital photography,

web design and many more.

11:00 a.m.

Kathi Danke, Youth and Family Counselor, meets with twelve-year-old “Paige.” Paige’s parents

are going through a divorce, something she’s not handling well, and her school year ended badly

as a result. Paige needs support and she needs to learn how to handle the emotions welling up

inside of her as her family life changes dramatically. Kathi’s session with Paige, like nearly all of

the services the Club provides, is free of charge and will be repeated as often as Paige continues

to need Kathi’s professional help. Kathi is a nationally certified mental health professional and

along with her colleagues at the Club, provides counseling and guidance support to hundreds of

children and youth like Paige each year. According to Kathi, children are affected by the same

sorts of mental health conditions as adults, including depression, addiction, attention deficit and

obsessive compulsive disorders, and others. Her clients, in addition to those who come from

other programs inside the Boys & Girls Clubs, are often referred by area schools, county human

services departments, and local physicians.

12:00 p.m.

Lunch! On the menu: Chicken sticks with ranch dressing, fresh fruit and milk. The meals provided

at the Club meet federal nutritional guidelines, are healthy, filling, and taste good.

1:00 p.m.

Outagamie County Sheriff’s Deputies Chad Grube and Rachel Miller get started with another session

of the G.R.E.A.T. program for 20 or so Club members. G.R.E.A.T. lessons focus on providing

life skills to students to help them avoid using delinquent behavior and violence to solve problems.

Chad and Rachel’s regular presence at the Club is another example of how the Club works in

close partnership with others in the community who care about kids.

2:00 p.m.

Torch Club meeting. Torch Club is a group leadership and service club for kids ages 9–12.

Through Torch Club membership, valuable skills such as organization, planning, team work and

leadership are acquired. Teens have their own leadership and service Club called Keystone.

3:00 p.m.

It’s never too early to begin thinking about the future. Through Career Launch, teens learn what

they must do to enter the work force. This program includes interview and resume preparation

and also provides information and education on various careers. Other programs at the Club

focus on money management, health, self-esteem, and substance abuse prevention.

4:00 p.m.

Late in the afternoon, and it’s a perfect time to work off some pent-up energy. During Open Gym,

kids play basketball, jump rope, practice cartwheels, and engage in many other forms of active

play. Childhood obesity rates are skyrocketing, and at the Club, physical activity, including baseball,

golf, volleyball, carpet ball, and more,is all part of ongoing programming.


8

5:00 p.m.

It’s Club clean up time! With all of the Club’s youth development programs due to end at 5:30,

it’s time to get all the Club members engaged in cleaning up the Club so it’s ready for another

busy day tomorrow. Teaching our Club members to take care of their Club is an important part

of how we teach kids to be responsible.

6:00 p.m.

Children and families who’ve suffered the loss of a loved one gather to participate in the Center

for Grieving Children, a peer support group operated by the Boys & Girls Clubs. The Center is a

safe place where grieving children, teens and families in the Fox Valley area receive compassionate

peer support, education, opportunities to remember and commemorate their loved one, and

the chance to express their experiences and feelings in an accepting environment. The Center

facilitates healing, removes isolation and builds a sense of hope. This evening's activities will

include the planting of a memorial tree at Greenville Lions Park honoring all those in the children’s

lives who’ve passed on.

7:00 p.m.

Sarah Boes, Maxwell Jones and Leah Lingnofski, all with the Club through the Americorps

national community service program, meet up with a group of teens they’ve come across at

Pierce Park. The teens are there just hanging out, but among them are a few kids who haven’t

been home for awhile and haven’t had much to eat in the last few days. Sarah, Max, and Leah

conduct street outreach to teens throughout the Fox Cities as part of the Clubs’ work to connect

with our community’s most high-risk and needy young people. Meeting with kids who might not

come into the Club on their own gives Sarah, Max, and Leah the opportunity to share resources

and give these young people a place to go if and when they might ever need help. Tonight, a

couple of meal coupons courtesy of McDonalds are handed out along with several copies of the

Clubs’ “Street Smart Card” which contains an extensive list of community resources.

9:00 p.m.

As the Center for Grieving Children finishes and the last family member is out and on their way

home, the lights go off and the doors are locked—but the work isn’t really done. Tonight it is

Sarah Crawford’s turn, the Clubs’ Runaway Assistance program Director, to respond to calls to

the Clubs’ 24-hour Runaway Hotline, providing crisis intervention assistance and whatever other

kind of guidance might be needed to youth who have run away from their homes.

Challenges

both of their birth parents.

• Risk Behaviors

45% of the youth we serve in our Truancy

Assessment Center self-report the illicit or

abusive use of drugs and/or alcohol.

• School

Far fewer economically disadvantaged students

in the Fox Cities score at the Advanced or

Living Proof*

There’s a difference between believing you’re making a difference and knowing you

are. That’s why we work hard to prove the impact of the Club in young lives. Hard
