Impact and Outcomes Data

Testimonials

The Club helped me create a vision of what I wanted to do in my future. I wanted to become a social worker helping other children who faced the same difficult challenges I faced as a child. As a result, I paid my way through community college, joined the US Army and worked my way through college. I am now living my dream working as a social worker helping children who live in challenging environments.

“The Boys and Girls Club has become an integral part of our school campus. Over the years, we have developed a true partnership and common visions for our students and the community. It is a pleasure to serve families and reach kids working with a dedicated organization like Club.”

Assistant Superintendent of Title I Schools - School District 300

The Boys and Girls Clubs provide after school activities to their members that support school education, life and career skill development and athletic activities. Without the Boys and Girls Clubs in our community, our kids would likely not have access to these wonderful opportunities. The Boys and Girls Club of Dundee Township has and continues to provide a valuable resource in the Carpentersville and Dundee communities to help our kids grow and develop into responsible adults.”   

Chief Michael J. Kilbourne

Carpentersville Police Department

I love working for Club because I can see the impact of what we do when members walk in and out of the club. Being able to change their attitudes, whether they had a good or bad day before they walked through our doors, seeing members leave with even bigger smiles, means a lot to me. When I see the accomplishment of helping our members every day, it brings me happiness.”

Lead Youth Development Professional

“I value that we get time to do our homework and receive dinner. Club has allowed me to be involved in different programs throughout the year including sports. Club has impacted me in helping me change my behavior and becoming more respectful to others and has also helped me become a better leader.

“Club has impacted me a lot. I have had the chance to open up about my life without being judged or laughed at. Club has impacted me to the point where I strongly feel like I have a new family, I can be myself.”

“Going to the Club was a safe haven for me. It provided me with love. Love from others, love for myself, love for the people I would connect with. Club gave me opportunities I never would have had, and given me skills I didn’t know I needed. I always knew I had a team that would always be on my side.”

2015 Youth of the Year

“Being involved with the club gives me a great sense of satisfaction in giving back. I have been blessed in my life and want to help where I can. The community benefits by having youth more involved and developing better citizens. Seeing the young people grow in BGCDT over the years and watching them graduate high school and become very productive adults is what the CLUB is all about!”
