Mission Statement

The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Tustin is to inspire and empower all young people, especially those that need us most, to realize their full potential as healthy, productive, caring, responsible citizens.

Background Statement

For over 50 years years (since 1966), the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tustin has been in the forefront of youth development, working with young people from all backgrounds, including those from disadvantaged economic, social, and family circumstances. Our overall mission is to inspire and empower all young people, especially those that need us most, to reach their full potential as healthy, productive, caring, and responsible citizens. All Boys & Girls Club programs are carefully designed to support achievement and foster a sense of belonging, influence, usefulness, and competence that builds self-confidence and self-esteem. The Youth Development Outcomes our Movement has designed for young people to succeed are:


·         Positive Self-Identity

·         Educational, Employment, Emotional and Cultural Competencies

·         Community and Civic Involvement

·         Health and Well-Being

·         A Moral Compass

Our Club is facility-based, and offers daily access to a broad range of programs in five core program areas: Character and Leadership Development; Education and Career Development; Health and Life Skills; The Arts; and Sports, Fitness and Recreation. Our focus for impact is in three areas: Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles and Good Character & Citizenship. Our Club believes that positive outcomes in these focus areas will serve as a blueprint for ensuring a positive future for every child we come in contact with.

Today, more than 2,500 boys and girls are taking advantage of the programs, activities and services provided by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tustin. They benefit from trained, caring, professional staff and volunteers who help young people take control of their lives, envision productive futures, and achieve their goals. With our support we believe youth will do well in school, serve their community and take responsibility for their own well-being – thereby increasing the number of caring citizens in the future who make our country great!

Impact Statement

- Our organization provided programs and services to over 2,500 young people last year in Tustin and surrounding areas.
- Our organization provided transportation for 150 youth each day from Tustin schools to our Club, and also 70 youth each day from transitional living situations (shelters/motels) to school, to our Club for academic and enrichment programs, and back "home'" in the evenings.
- Our organization was chosen the 2012 non-profit "Business of the Year" by the Tustin Camber of Commerce.
- Increase our average daily attendance from current 240 youth daily to 258 youth (maximum capacity)
- Provide additional training and support (orientation) to educate our board members on the value of their roles in the resource development efforts to support our valuable programs.
- Build our endowment Fund from $1.6K to $10.6K within 10 years to sustain the daily operations of the Club and to secure additional facilities and expansion opportunities (it currently takes $5,000 per day to support daily operations).
- Provide a sponsor to invest ($16,240) in the "Get Safe" Safety Program for our Club. This program will allow us to develop, monitor, and measure safety processes and procedures in our Club environment. Effective training is critically important to create a sense of safety and care among staff members and program participants which enhances their dedication and pride.
- Partner and expand our services with the City of Orange and continue to provide an afterschool program at Handy Park ($60K), with homework assistance and healthy lifestyle programs that will raise the success of the star testing at Handy Elementary School.
- Expand the teen program to include daily evening hours (7pm - 10pm) and provide transportation (safety) to encourage participation with our enrichment and leadership programs.

Needs Statement

1. Expand the teen program daily into the evening hours (7pm - 10pm) and on weekends, and provide transportation to encourage participation in our enrichment and leadership programs.
2. Provide a "world class experience" with consistency; it costs $5,000 daily to provide current services. We need to double the current overhead costs to hire additional staff with professional/educational experience to meet our Formula For Impact (FFI) goals.
3. Seek funding for a new Corporate/Marketing Director over 3 years at $70K base (plus 18% tax/benefits) with a ROI of $500K.
      - Funding plan, vision for support, and specific gift menu for corporate/individual investors.
4. Increase individual giving budget by short-term - 15% (2014), 20% (2015), 25% (2016), 30% (2017), for a total of 100% increase by 2017 (long term goal $327,650). Increase our annual budget by 6% each year (short-term), for a total of 30% by 2017 (long-term $1,488,610).
5. Create an Transportation Endowment Fund for the purposes of providing scholarship funds for families that cannot afford to pay for their children to be bussed to the Club from school each day. Approximately $50,000 is needed annually to scholarship 30 families in need.

CEO Statement

Think about the classic film, "It's A Wonderful Life", and the character of George Bailey and how he didn't feel he impacted the lives of those around him, even as a child. Clarence, George's guardian angel in training, guided him through a series of situations that did not fair well because George was not there...however, in the end, George realizes that we all make a difference!
This is a perfect way for us to remember and reflect why it's a "wonderful life" at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tustin. Where else do you have the opportunity to laugh, cry, play, and learn on a daily basis what makes a difference in the life of a child? To use your creative energy and teach our next generation of leaders the civility of generous giving not only monetarily, but with their time and talents for those that need it most? The Boys & Girls Clubs of Tustin is a place where we are able to nurture relationships that are born out of kindness to create a forward thinking organization that will provide a brighter future for our community.
Yes it's a "wonderful life" at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tustin and we could not do what we do without all of our "angels" in the community who help us!
Thank you Club members, parents, community volunteers, corporate alliances, national partners, generous donors, board members, and excellent staff members for helping us to "soar" at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tustin.
If you would like to contribute to our continued success, please donate

Board Chair Statement

Our greatest challenge is to raise funds to reach more kids, sooner, in order to positively impact their lives. We have much opportunity to expand our presence in both the cities of Tustin and Orange. There are more kids on waiting list of all after school care and Boys & Girl Clubs than there is space available. Furthermore, I'm a firm believer backed by data that the programs an approach at BG clubs is significantly more impactful than after school care. My daughter is now 28 years old. I wish I knew what the Boys & Girls Club provided compare to the after school options we put her in. Boys & Girls Clubs of Tustin offers complements public school with an array of programs, learning, mentoring, and soft skills that after school programs do not approach. I have a grandson expected this Sept (2017) and I can't wait to enroll the little guy into the BGC of Tustin.
