Background Statement

For over 45 years, the Boys & Girls Club of Cypress have provided free and low-cost afterschool and summer program activities for school-age children of local residents and business employees from ALL schools and communities in the Cypress area.

The Main Clubhouse, our main branch and administrative offices, is located in the middle of beautiful Cedar Glen Park. Due to the growing number of teen members, we will be expanding to include a Teen Center in fall of 2018. We also have two other Clubhouses located in Clara J. King Elementary School and A. E. Arnold Elementary School. King Elementary School is a Title 1 school and all children participating in our program are low-income youth who qualify for the free/reduced school lunch program. We currently serve 100+ King Elementary students at the site each school day.
 
Our three Clubhouses serve more than 1,000 children a year. During school holidays and throughout the Summer, the Main Clubhouse is open from 7:00am to 6:30pm. The Summer Program serves approximately 250 youth per day.
 
Our organization offers free program and mentoring services for children of military families. No child is ever turned away for inability to pay. The Board of Directors is committed to the success of the program and each member contributes substantially to its success. 
 
Our Certified Youth Bus program transports 95% of the children to the Club from 9 schools in 3 school districts.

Needs Statement

All children need and deserve a safe, positive place to learn and grow; opportunities to engage in life-enhancing programs and character development experiences; and high expectations and recognition that affirm their intrinsic value, success and accomplishments.

These Club Initiatives eliminate barriers so that all children are able to participate and benefit:

Scholarships - No child is ever turned away for inability to pay. More than 65% of the children who attend the club on a regular basis receive a scholarship to cover part, or in many cases all of their fees. Last year the Club provided over $300,000 in free services to over 340 members.  

Transportation - Our Transportation program is especially important as without our safe, reliable transportation many children would be unable to attend the Club.

Inclusion - We partner with several community agencies to provide one-on-one inclusion facilitators for our Club members with special needs.

Military Outreach - We reach out to the local military families to ensure that their children have stable, supportive mentors. All military youth attend the Club at no cost.

Community Connections - Our case manager helps families in crisis obtain food, clothing, shelter, counseling or medical care so their children are healthy and ready to succeed in school and in life. We also pair at-risk youth with mentors.

Board Chair Statement

It gives me great pleasure to serve as the Board President for this Club, knowing that my fellow Board members and the Staff are all committed to excellence. This team works diligently to provide high-quality activities and opportunities for learning that enhance academic success, good character and citizenship and healthy lifestyles for ALL youth.
Thanks to the generous support of community members and businesses, youth of all economic backgrounds have access to our services. Working together, last year we provided more than $300,000 in scholarships for more than 250 youth. No child is ever turned away due to financial hardships. These scholarships include our military families who we proudly serve at no cost to the families.
In the last decade the number of children attending the Club has more than quadrupled. Many of those members are now entering middle school and high school and are choosing to remain active Club members, even when their parents no longer require them to participate in a supervised program. Our leadership team is committed to developing more program activities for our members. We focus on developing leadership qualities and mentoring them as they navigate the challenges of becoming a young adult. To serve the growing number of teens, in 2018 we are building a Teen Center to serve the unique needs of middle school and high school members.
Please don’t hesitate to contact the Club for more information about how we can all work together to inspire, prepare and empower youth for success in school and in life. When teens are choosing to attend and when members of all ages ask their parents to pick them up as late as possible in the day – we know we’re on the right track!
Sincerely,
David Frias - Board President
