Formula For Impact
Our Great Futures Vision
Provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.
The true work of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County – the heart of what we do – lies fittingly at the center of our Formula for Impact. To create the optimal Outcome-Driven Club Experience, we provide high-yield activities and targeted programs, actively encourage young people to attend more frequently, and employ Five Key Elements for Positive Youth Development:
- Creating a safe, positive environment
- Having fun
- Developing supportive relationships with caring adults
- Offering opportunities for and having high expectations of members
- Recognizing members for who they are and their achievements
Through our annual National Youth Outcomes Initiative (NYOI) survey each spring, we are able to survey 90% of our youth (9-12 years old) and teens (13-18) that helps us measure indicators of youth achievement in key areas as well as member’s perceptions of the Club. The Boys and Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County are committed to measuring how much our young people are achieving and how effectively our Club Experience is implemented.
