Our Impact

Boys and Girls Clubs across Canada have a positive life changing impact on children and youth. Using a common model enables us to increase the quality and value of our programs for children, youth and families in communities across Canada and have the evidence to demonstrate this impact.

Model for Success

Our “Model for Success” describes the common features and core programming areas offered by Clubs, and the positive outcomes for children and youth that are achieved through them. Every element is based on the values and activities of Boys and Girls Clubs and is grounded in the latest research in child and youth development.
