STEM programs

for the

BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS of Skagit County

From engineers to pipefitters, chemists to accountants, IT specialists to welders,

Marathon’s success relies on our ability to recruit and retain employees with

exceptional STEM-related skills. As an employer constantly seeking out top-talent

and as a socially responsible corporate citizen, supporting STEM education-related

programs is the cornerstone of Marathon’s community investment strategy.

We are proud to collaborate with the Boys & Girls Club of Skagit County on the

establishment of the Marathon STEM Academy, and further its mission to enable all

young people to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.


I start my second year as chair of this board with feelings of hope and confidence in our

organization and our great community. Your support during this year has sustained our ability

to succeed in our organization’s mission: To enable all young people, especially those who

need us most, to reach their full potential, as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The

innovation of our staff, partnerships with other community organizations, and your support

has made this all possible.

We have partnered with other children’s organizations and local school districts to help

us achieve the goal of creating safe places for our children where they can reach that full

potential. These partnerships have allowed us to keep our full day programs open to children

and to provide necessary childcare for our community. Our staff has continued to go above

and beyond in their duties to ensure safety and fun for our members. From tie dyeing their

own face masks to launching Legos with homemade catapults, the staff has made sure our

Clubs have operated with as much a sense of normal as possible. Follow the Skagit Clubs on

our social media accounts to see some of the creative ways our staff has brought fun to the

Clubs while keeping safety top of mind. We have also worked hard to make sure community

engagement has stayed just as fun.

Our Annual ‘Great Futures Gala’ went virtual this year with our guest speaker, Jackie Joyner–

Kersee, telling us her story of growing up with the Club. Take–home boxes with goodies and

an online social hour for guests of the Gala brought attendees together for another successful

night of fundraising and “fun-raising” for our organization. Carrying this idea forward, the

annual breakfast in March is sure to be even more entertaining. Our team has created a live

‘Rise ‘N Shine Skagit’ morning show that will be entertaining and uplifting… possibly, even

better than that morning cup of coffee. I am always impressed with the talent of our team and

I look forward to seeing this new virtual event format.

Thank you for your support and working with us to do Whatever It Takes to fulfill our mission

and bring much needed services to the children and families of our county. As we always have,

the Clubs will serve those who need us most, and your commitment to our mission makes

that possible. I am honored to serve as your chair again, and look forward to everything we

will accomplish this year.

With best wishes and sincere gratitude,

Thank You to our Donors

Dear Club Friends and Family,

To Our Many Donors

What does it look like to change a

life? Through the Boys & Girls Clubs,

interests are being ignited & mentors

are making an impact. At the Clubs,

youth have access to programs that

include tutoring & tech & health &

fitness & arts & music, & the list goes

on. At Boys & Girls Clubs we don’t

do just one thing, we do Whatever It

Takes to meet the needs of every kid

who comes through those doors. We

are here to create opportunities for

our youth & we know YOU are here

too. Thank YOU for joining us in doing

Whatever It Takes to provide Great

Futures for our youth!

An Annual Report is an opportunity for an organization to demonstrate to the community how

investments made toward the mission were utilized. This year, the circumstances created by

COVID–19 really defined what we were able to accomplish. Simply keeping programs open,

safely, to ensure students had a physically, emotionally, and mentally safe, fun, and positive

place to be during the extended school closures was, and continues to be, our primary focus.

Yet, that is not the only outcome reached.

We are blessed to have an amazing, dedicated staff team. Because of them, programs and

services continued on without interruption, and in all of 2020, there was no direct transmission

of COVID–19 within our Clubs. Their vigilance in maintaining Safety as our #1 Priority is

commendable, especially in these challenging times. From helping a kindergarten student

navigate through their first day of school in a remote–learning environment, to preparing and

delivering thousands of meals each week, Clubs are here for kids, teens, and families in Skagit.

The theme for 2020 quickly became adaptability. We had to remain responsive to evolving

health guidance, changing community circumstance and needs, and the ebb and flow of

resources available. Boys & Girls Clubs began serving children just prior to the Civil War in

America. We have important historical context to reflect upon—navigating through the 1918

Spanish Flu pandemic, the Great Depression, the first Civil Rights Era, and world wars and

regional/local military conflicts that are unfortunately, too numerous to count. It is true our

Boys & Girls Club movement, like America itself, has not faced such a confluence of crises

before, but I have great faith in our community, our staff, our volunteers, our kids and teens

themselves, that we can overcome this—together.

Our strategies for recovery include an increased focus on Social and Emotional Learning

competencies, Academic Supports, and Workforce Development. So far, resources have

really targeted the youngest of students, and it has been necessary. However, we have a

group of Sophomores through Seniors who have yet to experience their first job search or

engagement in the workforce. There are important developmental milestones on important

soft skills, like knowing to show up on time, how to work as a team, self–accountability, and

more, which will impact economic recovery immediately and in the years to come. We are

going to do #WhateverItTakes to support kids and teens how and when they need us. We

are so thankful to our community for the trust and confidence you place in Clubs and our

mission—to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full

potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Yours in service,

Ron McHenry

For our staff & families, safety is going to inevitably be the

number one priority for the Clubs. However, ask a Club

Member and they’ll tell you that theirs is to have fun. We

asked Members to tell us their favorite thing about coming

to the Clubs, and they all had a lot to share. Thank you for

helping create a place for friendships to grow, learning to

happen, and Great Futures to build! Look for these letters

and quotes featured throughout the Report.

Skagit Club Members and Families,

While there is little doubt that this past year has brought forward new safety challenges

to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Skagit County on multiple fronts, there is great reason for

optimism moving forward. Preparing for and dealing with the intricacies of the COVID–19

pandemic, increased tensions related to social injustices across the country, and developing

coping strategies for the myriad challenges faced by our kids on a daily basis have created

opportunities for reflection on who we are, those we serve, and the importance we place on

valuing the safety and security of each youth served.

It is no exaggeration to say we do whatever it takes to make the Clubs a safe place for

kids! The protocols for masking up, implementing deep cleaning procedures, practicing social

distancing, and stressing the importance of washing hands frequently, are easy for anyone to

see. What may be less apparent is the focus we place on the unseen psychological impacts that

living in today’s world brings upon our clients. Clubs and their leadership provide opportunities

for exercises in leadership for those interested in trying it out and building self-esteem for those

who need it most. Club leaders suggest effective methods to resist temptation and bullying

behaviors, and have open, honest communication in a trust–building environment. Fostering a

culture of diversity, equity and inclusion contributes to the important work of turning out future

contributing members of our community. We want our kids to learn these important skills that

contribute to their safety, security and well-being, while having an abundance of fun!

Every Club activity places the safety and security of all involved as Priority #1. Protocols in

areas of safety and health have been crafted with the guidance of the Skagit County Health

Department and are continuously reviewed and updated as necessary for quality. These

actions, along with many others obvious and discrete, are focused on keeping our promise

to model a “can–do, whatever it takes” attitude and outcomes. We are proud to do this in an

effort to provide for families who need us most, and to ensure their children are participating in

a safe, clean, positive and inclusive environment.

Yours in service to our kids,

Bill Overby, Chair

Boeing Grant Supports Technology Labs

If you were to ask one of us in January 2020 what our

greatest needs for work might be, or the frustrations

that put our hair on end—faulty internet, or a computer

crashing would have been irksome, but might not

have risen to the level of critical. Over the past year,

however, the challenges due to technology have

exploded to the forefront. At the Clubs, as we serve

youth during remote schooling, especially, one aspect

of ongoing mentoring is Technology proficiency. Being

able to maneuver multiple computer applications,

understanding the internal workings of the machine,

and just feeling comfortable sitting down and getting

a computer to do what you need it to, all fall into our

support of STEM, and align with best practices in

youth development.

During the Fall & Winter of 2020, we had a great

opportunity to bolster the support through tech

lab renovation done at our Mount Vernon and

Sedro–Woolley Clubs, thanks to a grant from

the Boeing Employees Community Fund. This

grant supported the purchase of new computers,

peripherals, A/V equipment, tables & chairs, and

getting the spaces best suited for ongoing programs,

as well as regular use during homework support.

These technology improvements are a foundational

way that we can better serve her kids, as we continue

to improve our operations.

Technology equipment is often a challenging expense,

because it is both ongoing as new systems evolve &

come out, as well as significant due to the cost—and

on a limited budget, it can mean direct trade-off to

programs. With the support of the Boeing Employees

Community Fund, we are able to continue to direct

our resources to the staff mentoring that makes the

biggest difference for kids, while also having the gift

of new tech labs, that will allow us to better serve the

aspirations of our kids, into the future.

Similar to our work with iClubhouse during the Spring

and Summer, as we provided virtual Club programs to

members, we look forward to using these Tech Labs

to increase the impact of Club programs. Thank you

to the Boeing Employees Community Fund for this

great investment in our kids’ development.

Hosting a Virtual Gala in 2020:

Our Takeaways

On November 6, 2020, our four–person Resource

Development team popped a celebratory bottle of

champagne in the back room of TrueTone Studio. We

had just finished streaming our Virtual Great Futures

Gala 10 minutes earlier and that “we did it!” feeling

began to sink in. After more than three months of

preparation, this moment marked the wrap of the

Skagit Boys & Girls Clubs’ first–ever virtual gala. It’s no

doubt the Virtual Great Futures Gala looked different

from our usual in-person event, but regardless, it was

something to celebrate.

If you’ve attended any of our live events in the

past, you know they’re a good ol’ time filled with

camaraderie, entertainment, and philanthropy. So in

August, when we realized the fate of in-person events

for 2020 and ‘virtual’ was dubbed the poster word

for at-home temporary (not–so–temporary) offices, we

faced the question: How do we bring that same level

of excitement of our in-person gala to a virtual gala?

The answer: We had no idea. Well, sort of. It turns out

we could convert most aspects of our Great Futures

Gala to a virtual platform if we got creative. For example,

we typically invite a famous Club alum to the event to

share their story and a message of encouragement.

Instead of an in–person speech, we hosted Jackie

Joyner–Kersee on our virtual streaming ‘stage’ for an

exclusive Q&A. Our usual live auction hosted by our

rock star auctioneer & emcee, Gee Scott, sporting

his iconic sequin blazer turned into a live auction

streamed right to our guests’ living rooms—still with

Gee and his blazer, of course (Thanks, Gee!). As for

our sit-down dinner? We sent ‘gala boxes’ filled with

chocolates, salmon, cheese, crackers, photo props,

and an engraved wine glass to each guest.

We sent invitations. We ordered boxes. We recorded

videos and prepared speeches. We began to see the

light at the end of our virtual–event–planning tunnel.

But there was one aspect we feared we couldn’t

recreate at our virtual event. That aspect was the

guest interactions and excitement that comes from

getting together with a group of friends for a night out.

It seemed downright impossible to bring that type of

energy to a virtual platform, or so we thought.

This is where we’d be remiss not to mention the real

reason for our success that night back in November.

It wasn’t the fancy appetizers, live auction, or pre–

recorded segments, the real reason for our success

that night was you! We hosted a virtual happy hour for

guests to interact with each other and guest speaker,

Jackie Joyner–Kersee. Guests used the photo booth

props from their boxes to take pictures, and our

event chat box was a constant stream of shout outs

between attendees and staff.

We learned a few lessons during the virtual event

planning process. 1.) Virtual events can be fun! 2.) The

more you put into the event, the more your guests

will get out of it. 3.) It takes a community to pull off a

successful virtual event & we can’t thank you enough

for the support you’ve shown us this past year.

When we were popping that bottle of champagne in the back of the studio,

we may have been raising a toast to the end of a successful night, but

we were also raising a toast to you. And all of the other sponsors, guests,

board members, donors, and supporters in the community who made the

night one to celebrate.

As we kick off 2021 with a virtual event under our belt, we can’t wait to

include you in what we have planned for this year. Starting off with our

debut of KLUB ‘Rise ‘n Shine Skagit’ Morning Show on March 24th in

place of our Annual Breakfast. We’ll see you there!

Morning Show visit skagitclubs.org/events/annual-breakfast.

to our 2021 Youth

of the Year: Aja Lee!

Aja is a Sophomore at Concrete High School. She’s

been a member of the Concrete Boys & Girls Club

since its opening in October of 2018. Aja has been a

natural leader in our Teen Center, while also developing

her leadership skills with us. She does her best to

model the way for younger members, and hold her

peers accountable for their actions and behaviors.

Aja plans to complete high school and go to college

for a degree, she just doesn’t know which one yet!

Along her journey, it is Aja’s hope to continue her Boys

& Girls Clubs membership through graduation, then

to return to us as either a staff member or volunteer.

From Our YOY: The

Pandemic in My Life

Of all of the challenges I have faced in my life, being

cooped up in my house for a year now has been a

pretty tough one. The pandemic shut down the

schools, and pushed everyone to remote learning;

being away from friends for so long has been hard to

cope with. I haven’t been able to get out much, or live

life normally.

Being in a virtual learning environment is strange.

Not waking up to catch a bus, or walking around the

school — even the assignments aren’t the same, and

there aren’t a lot of hands on things we can do, or

group projects. With all that said, my schedule has

been thrown off and altered so much that it will be

difficult to get back in the swing of things.

This pandemic has changed perspectives on how the

world lives. Haruki Murakami once said, “And once

the storm is over you won’t remember how you made

it through.... You won’t be the same person who

walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.” I wanted

to include this quotation because it is the perfect

example of how life is going, right now. The “storm”

is the pandemic, and we are all fighting it. We won’t

be the same, though — we have had to learn different

ways to live. We are learning to never leave our homes

with out a mask, buy in bulk to limit our trips to the

grocery store, and look to the government to guide

how to safely live our day to day lives.

Having the Boys & Girls Clubs open back up has helped me and others

to get help with school, and be able to see people in a safe environment. I

have had so much fun at Boys & Girls Clubs in the past, and I continue to

have fun, even during the pandemic. Although we have not been able to go

on any trips since the pandemic, we still find ways to get outside and get

together, whether it be soccer, a short walk, or doing homework outside.

The Clubs provide a sense of normalcy through the feeling of togetherness.

Introducing: Club Mentor

A foundational element of Boys & Girls Clubs for more than 150 years is

the role that caring, supportive relationships play in the lives of the kids and

teens through their development. The core of these relationships are formed

with direct-service staff, who provided guided activities and implement

intentional curriculum and other interventions to facilitate a Club member

acquiring their own #GreatFuture. Volunteers have often supplemented this

through occasional and regular engagement, but in a less structured way.

Unfortunately, because of COVID–19 health and safety protocols and the

organization’s desire to mitigate any potential transmission risk, in–person

volunteering has been on hiatus, but hope is on the horizon.

As the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County continues to navigate the day–

to–day reality that is Crisis Response, leadership understands that an eye

must also be strategically kept on the horizon that is Recovery. To this

end, funding has been secured to jump–start the “Club Mentor” initiative.

A full–time, dedicated staff person will work to recruit, onboard, and train

volunteers, targeting individuals willing to make a regular commitment of

one hour at least every other week. Consistency is important to the at–risk

and often most disadvantaged youth in our communities that Clubs serve,

though a place will be found for anyone wanting to be a part of the solution.

It is hoped the Club Mentor program will increase the number of adult

role models in Skagit Clubhouses by more than 50% during peak hours.

This provides for lower adult to child staff ratios, which will be maximized

through integrating purposeful Social and Emotional Learning activities.

While the shutdown in March was quite binary—one day schools and the

Clubs were open in traditional circumstances, the next everything was

different—the initial recovery period will be anything but that. It will take

time for adolescents to trust adults outside their own households again.

Meanwhile, they will likely face incredible pressures, mainly unintentional

ones that relate to the disruption of their academic progress. There are

tremendous challenges and obstacles to overcome with the best support

network in place, and the majority of kids and teens that participate in Club

programs do not possess such a network.

Hiring for the new Club Mentor position will begin in earnest in February,

with a desire to have a candidate secured and beginning work by mid–

March. They will spend the spring developing the systems and processes

required to scale such an ambitious program quickly, and start volunteer

recruiting efforts in earnest by June. Individuals interested in participating will

be provided training in Sex Abuse Prevention Practices and organizational

policies regarding volunteer interaction strategies, “Program Basics” which

is like a boot camp for Club professionals, and “Sanford Harmony,” the

Social and Emotional Learning Curriculum utilized by the Boys & Girls

Clubs of Skagit County. To get in the queue, now, and reserve your spot

in being part of the recovery solution of Club Mentor, email Mission

Great Beginnings — Early Childcare Access

& Support

As we wrestle with the continued challenges of

COVID–19, and look back at a year of major changes,

one of the key reflection points is how we care for

our kids. This was at the forefront of our minds when

we made the commitment to be open from day one

of the shutdowns, providing essential workers and

emergency health care personnel a place for their kids

to be. This reflection stayed with us as we found ways

to be open this entire past year, supporting the ones

most impacted by the pandemic—our kids.

Questioning what supports are needed, and more

specifically, how we address the needs of families

looking for care for their youngest kids—is something

that has given us great pause. Boys & Girls Clubs have

been committed to the best in youth development

for over 150 years, and in Skagit County for nearly

3 decades—but most often that work addresses

school-age youth. When members turn 6, traditionally,

they are eligible to join the Club.

For many years, parents & community members

have approached Club Staff about childcare options

for younger children. Are spots available for younger

siblings, or would we ever consider providing before–

school programming, or full–day options for working

families throughout the entire year? And all these

considerations are tough questions for us, as we

strive to do whatever it takes for our youth, especially,

those who need us most, and balance the constraints

of limited resources. At our Clubs in Anacortes,

and Sedro–Woolley, especially, these questions are


Throughout the pandemic, the increased need for

childcare has grown more pronounced. Between a

laser focus on questions of support during the out–

of–school hours, or general support for younger kids

throughout the entire day, much of the attention to

academic improvement and supervision has come

to the forefront. Part of this challenge is seen in the

overall lack of offerings for childcare, and the everpresent

burden of high costs. The limited spots

available fill quickly, and wait lists are commonplace

at almost every facility. In addition, as all of us have

been financially impacted by the pandemic, and many

businesses have been forced to close—childcare

facilities haven’t been exempt. With some childcare

facilities having to shut down, this has only increased

the shortage of overall spaces available.

Starting last year, there was an opportunity for the

Clubs to partner with the Anacortes Family Center,

and help build out a new childcare space in a new and

forthcoming housing development. In providing a new

childcare space in Anacortes, for the first time, we will

start serving youth as young as age 3, starting in 2022.

This will be a significant service to the community,

and allow not just families desperately looking for

childcare, but especially families for whom the high

cost of early childcare care is a barrier—to have a

place for the kids. We are excited to partner, and look

forward to this foray into early learning, bringing our

expertise in youth development, in mentoring, and in

social & emotional development—all with the same

commitment to do whatever it takes, and enable our

youngest members to reach their full potential. We

look forward to continuing this partnership with the

Anacortes Family Center.

Beyond the Anacortes childcare project, we also had

the opportunity to take advantage of a Department

of Commerce grant, starting this last November, that

is allowing us to look into the cost of bringing in a

new childcare facility to Sedro–Woolley. This grant

allows us to survey the demand, the ability to pay

for childcare locally, as well as the cost to renovate

or to build a new childcare facility. Partnering with

the Sedro–Woolley Chamber of Commerce, United

General District #304, the Sedro–Woolley School

District, Childcare Aware, and other local groups on

our Taskforce, we are working to complete all of the

surveying by early summer, and present a summary

of findings to the Department of Commerce. More

information on the project can be found on the Clubs’


Proud supporter of

Right from the beginning of the pandemic we continued

our commitment to serve kids, whatever it took, as a

way of helping them reach their full potential. Looking

at this continued challenge of lacking early childcare,

and beginning to figure out how we might be able to

further support, we are excited to find more ways to

serve families, this community, and most especially—

our kids.

approximately 1,450 hours of service—after school and full– were one-time investments in the Spring, and it is becoming

day programs during the summer. In 2020, because of the clearer they will not be repeated. To maintain current levels of

pandemic, our average service hours increased nearly 100%, operations, through at least the end of the school year, it is

to more than 2,400. As one might expect, revenue from likely our small operational reserve may need to be tapped.

A Closer Look

2019 Total Income: $2,393,773

2020 Total Income: $2,713,375

2019 Total Expenses: $2,355,324

2020 Total Expenses: $2,597,454

Not surprisingly, there are significant swings in expenses

shown. Most elements of Personal Protective Equipment and

supplies for staff are found under Program Administration

Supplies & Equipment. In having buildings open for more

hours, Occupancy costs also saw a notable increase.

The Program Delivery category year over year is more

nuanced. In some line items, such as Field Trips, there were

significant reductions and eliminations. Others, including Club

Supplies, Food and Nutrition, and Program Equipment, saw

substantial increases. Often, this related to an expansion of

new program sites to allow for physical distancing, necessary

investments in technology infrastructure for health screening,

and a loss of efficiency in ordering and using bulk supplies. It

is simply more expensive to provide each child an individual

bottle of glue even when buying in bulk quantities than it is to

buy 1–gallon jugs that are shared.

The Core of our Clubs:

Youth Development


Youth development professionals have always been the backbone of Boys

& Girls Clubs. They are the staff members who work daily with her kids,

guiding, consoling, supporting, teaching, and working one side or members

as they engage in programs, play games, or just sit and talk. YDPs are

there to celebrate a successful accomplishment, encourage tackling a new

challenge, mourn and console during a loss, or simply be there as a shoulder

of support. They are mentors. Every time you hear a member speak about

their time at the Club, or the support & encouragement they received—a

Youth Development Professional, YDP for short, is named. YDPs make the

Clubs special, and they are critical to successful youth development.

Youth Development Professionals continued

During a normal year, our YDPs would spend afternoons during the school

year helping members maneuver the time between the school day, and

home. Summers get a bit more hectic, as we transition to a longer day, and

having to balance two shifts of staff members, with most kids attending

almost all week. This year, however, the challenge has been that of normal

summer scheduling—but all year long; intensified with higher staff–to–

member ratios, and more insulated groups. With each club site open 11

to 12 hours per day, five days a week, since March—making sure that

all safety protocols & procedures are followed, that schedules aren’t over

wieldy, that staff have a break, and that we are able to offer the same level

of care and support, is most felt by our YDPs. They served more meals,

ensuring that supplemental nutrition reached our most vulnerable kids; they

ran new, dynamic programs through our virtual platform, iClubhouse, to

reach those members at home. More than ever, they have stepped up to

this challenge.

Our youth development professionals are heroes. They have been at the

Clubs, everyday, for our members—dedicated to serving those most in

need of support, or a place to be during a pandemic. When the Skagit

Clubs stood at a crossroads of whether to strive to remain open for kids &

families, our YDPs rose to the occasion. Youth development professionals

are the backbone of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County, and 2020

demonstrated just how resilient, resourceful, committed, and caring they

can be. They continue to be here for those who need us most, enabling

members to reach their full potential—despite a pandemic.
