We are committed to closing the opportunity gap for kids and teens and our advocacy at the local, state, and federal levels enables us to secure critical funding, impactful policies, and legislative support around key priority issues. As a Movement, we are amplifying the importance of what we know makes the greatest difference in the lives of kids. There are many ways Clubs and Alliances, as well as members, alumni, advocates, and community supporters, can aid in advancing policies that have a positive impact on our nation’s young people.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of America Club Advocacy Engagement Recognition Program recognizes the amazing advocacy work Clubs and Alliances do every day, with a major emphasis on impact, creativity, and innovation with your advocacy engagement. The program consists of three tiers for Clubs: Advocate, Hero, and Champion. Clubs earn points for impactful engagements and those points determine what tier a Club reaches. Clubs earn incentives and recognition for their advocacy efforts, depending on their tier level.
As a result of Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County advocating at the local and state levels through contacting elected officials, developing a plan for advocacy, and conducting a communications & media advocacy plan, we have been awarded the 2021 Hero for Youth Award!
We are thankful for our annual partners and community supporters!
