Planning is currently underway for the next

strategic plan that will shape several of those

years, and do so in a targeted, intentional way.

Clubs will remain responsive to the needs

of the community, adaptable whenever

possible, and committed to excellence in

service, transparency, and engagement.

With increasing needs of families, comes greater demands

on the organization to respond. Through partnership

and collaboration, Clubs are able to run efficiently,

but still require that local community support that started

it all. It’s an annual effort, and one that is vital to

agency health, so it will never stop. Just maintaining

current service levels take a tremendous effort, but

with kids on lists, simply waiting to attend Clubs, and

other communities not being fully reached, it becomes

incrementally more difficult to respond.

And so, measured growth, focused on sustainable

and realistic resource development standards, is what

drives the conversation. Temporary funding streams

for specific interventions, like 21st Century Community

Learning Centers play a role, but with the knowledge

that at the end of five years, that level of program service

can not move forward as-is. Instead, these efforts

are considered temporary ‘boosters’, with the resources

meeting the needs of a targeted group of young people,

and in such a way that the need is significantly reduced

within that five year period, so that services can still be

accessed at one of the community Clubhouses.

What does the next 20 years have in store for the Boys

& Girls Clubs of Skagit County? Quality, outcome driven

and data-informed programs delivered to youth, especially

those who need us most, so they can reach their
