Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington
Founded in 1956, Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing all youth with high-quality experiences that lead to fulfilling and meaningful lives. The Club provides extensive programs during after-school hours, holiday breaks and summer break. The three core program areas are Healthy Lifestyles, Academic Success, and Good Character & Active Citizenship. The Clubs serve as many as 620 youth daily, at our three units within Monroe County: Lincoln Street Club, Steve & Connie Ferguson Crestmont Club and the Ellettsville Club.The Club is excited to begin serving Owen County later this year. The annual membership for a child to attend the club is only $20 a year. It is the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington to empower all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as caring, productive, and responsible citizens.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Indiana
Our Mission: At Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Central Indiana we have a simple and clear mission to create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships to ignite the power and promise of youth.
Our Vision: All youth achieve their full potential.
According to the Public/Private Ventures (P/PV) study, our one-to-one matches truly make an impact in children’s lives. A Big Brothers Big Sisters’ match is carefully administered and held to the strictest standards. Agencies strive for matches that are not only safe and well suited to each child’s needs, but also harmonious and built to last. The entire matching process, from the initial screening to the final pairing – and beyond – is made possible by our community’s financial support.
But don’t just think of us as simply matchmakers. We provide ongoing support and supervision to the Big, the Little, and the Little’s family. We offer training and guidance to help ensure that the matches have the best possible outcomes. By partnering with parents/guardians, volunteers, and others in the community, we are accountable for each child in our program achieving:
- Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
- Avoidance of risky behaviors
- Educational success
