The Boys and Girls Club of Niagara is a part of a national movement with over seven hundred community locations throughout Canada. Together the movement provides innovative and effective programs to assist in the healthy educational, social, and physical development of Canadian children and youth. For over one-hundred years, professionally trained staff and dedicated community volunteers have helped hundreds of thousands of children and youth in safe supportive environments. The Boys and Girls Club model is more comprehensive than prevention, recreation or educational programs alone. The Club utilizes a developmental approach in every program focusing on increasing a young person’s exposure to positive and constructive activities, supporting them to become healthy, responsible, compassionate, and competent. The development approach offers children what research says is the most needed; relationships with positive role models (adults and peers), structure and safety, access to a diverse range of programs that include recreation, play and expression, opportunity for acquiring positive behaviours, self esteem, and hope for the future. Core Values: Belonging: We welcome everyone in a safe, accepting environment based on belonging and positive relationships. Respect: We ensure that everyone – children, youth, families, volunteers, staff – is heard, respected, valued and treated fairly. Encouragement and Support: We encourage and support every child and youth to play, learn and grow to achieve their dreams. Working Together: We work together with young people, families, volunteers, our communities and government. Speaking Out: We speak out with children, youth and families so that we can make our world better. Awards • Prime Minister’s Award for Excellence in Early Childhood Education 2003 • Donner Canadian Foundation Award for Excellence in the Delivery of Child Care Services “2003” • Early Childhood Educators Award of Excellence in Program Philosophy & Direction “2004” • Participants of the “Developmental Preschool Screening” process “2005-2006” • Participants of the Anaphylaxis Training Certification Program • Parks and Recreation Ontario’s Excellence in Design Award 2012 The Boys and Girls Club of Niagara was one of the first to achieve the HIGH FIVE Accreditation Organization designation in June 2006.
