Targeted Programs

Targeted Programs

Mount Vernon Members and Staff at the Clear Lake Triathlon.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County offers Targeted Programs to meet the significant and specific needs of our Members at each of our Clubs. The goal of all our programs, as outlined in the Formula for Impact, is to help our Members achieve success with three Priority Outcomes:  Academic Success, Good Character & Citizenship, and Healthy Lifestyles.

Target Programs are pulled from our five Core Program Areas: Education & Career, Character & Leadership, Health & Life Skills, the Arts, and Sports, Fitness & Recreation.  The Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County also offers other Specialized Programs.  These initiatives focus on meeting additional needs identified within our communities and schools.
