Our mission is to enable help all young people, especially those who need us most.

 

America’s kids are in crisis. Low graduation rates. Escalating juvenile crime. Obesity. Poverty.

National studies have shown that youth who attend Boys & Girls Clubs have higher graduation rates, are less likely to get in trouble after school, and lead healthier and more active lifestyles.

See the statistics below for more details on the measurable impact we have on the lives of young people.

 

 

Your support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County will help today’s youth have a brighter future.

Visit the Invest in Our Kids page for more information about supporting our efforts.
