Mission Statement

The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City is to promote the development of self-esteem, values, and skills for boys and girls, ages 5 to 18, with special emphasis on youth from disadvantaged circumstances. Our primary organizational focus is on supporting and guiding all active members to graduate high school with post-secondary plans in place. 

We strive to provide life-changing programs at eight Club units across the greater Kansas City metropolitan area, including six traditional Club sites and two school sites. We have three Club Units in Independence, Missouri; three Club Units in Kansas City, Missouri; one Club Unit in Kansas City, Kansas; and one Club Unit in Olathe, Kansas. 
  
Club membership is open to all children, ages 5-18. Each member is asked to pay an annual membership fee of $15 per year. For this amount, Club members may be in the Club anytime it is open.  Each Club offers more than twenty youth development programs delivered within the framework of five core areas:  Education & Career Development, Healthy Lifestyles, Public Speaking & Leadership, the Arts, and Technology. Our members are predominantly living in our community's toughest neighborhoods and face a number of additional hurdles in their lives. The Clubs provide a a beacon of hope and opportunity for the young people who need us most.
 
Our goal is to provide our members with what each of us wants for the young people in our lives - healthy meals, access to opportunities, exposure to new ideas and experiences, and a positive outlet to mold and follow aspirations.
 
During the summer, our Clubs are open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. every weekday for nine weeks. This component of our overall programming provides rigorous STEM and literacy enrichment programming, which has made substantial impact on summer learning loss over the last several years. We supplement year round staff with certified teachers to maximize impact during the summer. But it is still the Club, thus providing a fun outlet as well as a learning environment for our members all summer long.

Background Statement
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City was originally organized as the Juvenile Improvement Club in 1912 in response to a need for better services for young boys in downtown Kansas City. We became the Boys Club of Kansas City and moved to our first community-based site in 1935. Girls were admitted into full and equal membership in 1976, and the organizational name was amended to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City.
 
An extensive renovation of the Thornberry Club was completed in 2000, made possible through a capital campaign effort. The success of our first capital campaign allowed us to increase our donor base and engage the community in the importance of youth development programming. As a result, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City now maintains six community-based Club units and three RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities) facilities across the metropolitan area. Each Club unit location and its charter or opening date is listed below: 
  • John T. Thornberry Unit (Kansas City, Missouri) - January 27, 1921
  • Wyandotte County Unit (Kansas City, Kansas) - April 8, 1997
  • Hawthorne Place Unit (Independence, Missouri) - July 1, 2004
  • Independence Unit (Independence, Missouri) - September 1, 2004
  • J&D Wagner Unit (Kansas City, Missouri) - August 30, 2010
  • Olathe Unit (Olathe, Kansas) - September 1, 2015 
  • Nowlin Middle School (Independence) and Lee A. Tolbert Academy Units - September 2019                                                  
Boys & Girls Clubs provides a safe, structured environment for school-age children and teens during the out of school hours when many are left alone and vulnerable. We impact the lives of over 5,000 youth annually through a Whole Child programmatic framework. We are the only organization in Kansas City that provides community-based, neighborhood facilities solely dedicated to youth activities in the neighborhoods where our Club units are located.

Our minimal membership fee ($15) ensures that no one is denied access to the Clubs. Scholarships are offered to youth in need. Our services bolster workforce development by allowing low-income parents to maintain their jobs, contribute to the economy, and provide for their families, knowing their children are safe. Club members receive academic support and build tangible life skills while avoiding dangerous behavior.  

Impact Statement

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City is driving significant impact in the lives of thousands of young people across our community's toughest neighborhoods.

In spring 2019, for the third straight year, 100% of our active senior Club members graduated high school with a post-secondary plan in place. This outcome is directly connected to our primary overarching goal.
 
Additionally, data from our 2019 Atomic Blast summer program shows that 81% of participants maintained or increased reading assessment scores and 74% maintained or increased math assessment sccores over the summer. The reduction of summer learning loss among youth from low income households is significant toward long-term success. On average, youth from low income households fall two grade levels behind their middle and upper income peers in reading by the fifth grade, a phenomena largely attributed to summer learning loss. By eliminating the impact of summer learning loss, the Clubs are helping position our members to succeed in school and beyond.

In the coming year, our primary focus will continue to be on providing the youth who need us the most with access to resources, opportunities and support needed to achieve, to identify their passions, and to pursue their aspirations.

Needs Statement
The ongoing need of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City is to secure partnerships and resources that will support our ability to provide the more than 1,000 young people who walk into a Club daily with dynamic programs, experiences and opportunities to achieve and succeed.
 
Specifically, needs include: 
  1. Specific program area investments to sustain and grow core programs.
  2. Volunteer support in a variety of forms, including daily homework help, Life Coach mentors, sports coaches, and more. The gift of time and talent is valuable and we appreciate the consideration of investment of knowledge in our work and in the lives of the young people we serve.
  3. Partner engagement throughout the corporate and civic community. It is imperative that we provide tangible experiences with experts in various fields to our members. We seek more corporate partners to assist with group presentations, mock interviews, workplace visits, job shadowing, and internships. Access to professionals in various fields gives our members the opportunity to ask direct questions on paths to achievement and helps them reinforce their plans.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City has a remarkable history in our community. In order to honor that history with an equally remarkable future, the Clubs must establish and maintain consistent funding streams and sources. Our increased efforts to establish and grow an endowment fund will provide long-term financial support and stability. In the business of youth development, the Boys & Girls Clubs are challenged to keep programs relevant, fresh, and meaningful to kids, while still accomplishing the desired outcomes. At the present time, we are focused on ensuring that 100% of our teen Club members graduate high school with a plan for their next step in place.
 
As member of Kansas City's corporate community, I am committed to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City because the organization has daily access to a significant population of urban youth who need - desperately need - additional help and support to break out of the cycle of generational poverty and create a positive and successful life for themselves and their families.  Those of us with resources have a responsibility to help those without - to make a difference in their lives because it will have an impact on all of us as individuals and as a community.

CEO Comments The dichotomy that exist in providing teaching and training in social, personal and formal education for our children and youth leaves a critical gap and disconnect in their development and preparation needed to be competitive in an increasingly demanding marketplace. Our point of view is that the same methodologies that make for effective academic teaching and training exist and are needed when providing teaching and training in youth social and personal development areas.

In a May 2012 article in Youth Today, Jane Quinn, Director of the National Center for Community Schools, writes that teaching life skills is critical in early child development, and is as important as cognitive learning opportunities when considering the "whole child" approach in helping children and youth prepare for successful futures. While the value of this approach has been universally acknowledged for more than a decade, many schools understandably succumbed to the very real pressures of test-obsessed public policies such as No Child Left Behind and have even less ability to offer a comprehensive "whole child" development program. 

“Whole child” advocates, according to Quinn, recognize the inter-relationship of children and youth's cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and moral development. Social entrepreneur Ellen Galinsky outlined seven skills in this article that prepare young children for subsequent learning and healthy development: focus and self-control; perspective taking; communicating; making connections; critical thinking; taking on challenges; and self-directed, engaged learning. A national movement is underway to combine the efforts of youth development organizations and local schools to promote and provide for the development of the whole child which means that all of the adults in our children's lives - parents, teachers, youth workers, and others - will rediscover and work to support all aspects of their learning and healthy development.
  
Our work at the Clubs combines educational focus with building tangible life skills that our young people need. Every day is a challenge for the youth we serve. But they are bright, articulate and eager to achieve. All they need is access, exposure, opportunity and support. The Clubs provide these elements and much more.
Executive Director/CEO
Executive Director Dr. Dred Scott
Term Start Aug 2018
Experience

Dr. Dred Scott was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri.   He graduated from Bishop Hogan High School, which was a small Catholic high school in the inner-city. Dr. Scott obtained an undergraduate degree from Southwest Missouri State University in Springfield, MO.   Later, he obtained a master’s degree in school administration from Central Missouri State University and earned a doctorate in educational leadership at Baker University.

Dr. Scott worked for 11 years in the Raytown C-2 School District in different capacities. He first worked as an elementary teacher, where he taught four years in a CWC (Class Within a Class) classroom. This inclusionary model allowed students with special needs to receive instructional support in the regular classroom who would have normally been self-contained. Dred was honored as the district’s teacher of the year during his third year of teaching. Next, Dr. Scott worked as an elementary school building principal. His school contained the highest at-risk population in the district. Finally, Dred Scott worked as the executive director of support services. This was a district level position involving oversight of the transportation, buildings and grounds, and food service departments. The position also included management of new construction as part of a thirty million dollar bond. Dred supervised the construction of a new elementary school, early childhood center, and additions to both of the district’s high schools.

Dr. Scott joined the Independence School District in 2008. He served as deputy superintendent responsible for all aspects of curriculum, instruction, and assessment across the district (PK-12) through 2018 when he joined Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City.

CEO Comments The Corporate Board of Directors governs our agency with a clear sense of purpose and fiscal responsibility. As president, I have led our organization for the past eighteen years, during which time we have increased the number of youth served and improved the manner in which operations are conducted. At the present time, our Corporate Board and senior management team are focused on deepening the impact we have on current Club members and expanding the impact to reach even more urban youth, with particular attention on helping our youth graduate from high school with post-secondary plans.  The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, as led by its Corporate Board, is determined to have maximum impact on Kansas City's kids - particularly those living in disadvantaged circumstances - so they can have fulfilling lives and join our community as contributing adults.
