WE ARE ON A MISSION

OUR MISSION

To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

OUR VISION

Provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who walks through 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.

OUR VALUES

RESPECT

We ensure that everyone—children, youth, families, volunteers, staff —is heard, valued, and treated fairly.

INTEGRITY

We are authentic, honest, and transparent; we strive to do what’s right every day, for every child and teen.

COMPASSION

We have empathy and understand the challenges facing young people. We are compelled to do whatever it takes to reduce those challenges.

EXCELLENCE

We excel in providing quality programs, rigorously measured impact, and work to continuously improve ourselves and our organization; we are innovative.

SAFETY

We are committed at all levels of our organization to provide a safe and supportive place for our Club members. Through regular training and commitment from staff and volunteers, safety is and always will be our number one priority.

OUR COMMITMENT TO INCLUSION

The mission and core beliefs of Boys & Girls Clubs promote a safe, positive, and inclusive environment for all. Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa supports all youth and teens — of every race, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ability, socio-economic status, and religion — in reaching their full potential. We are committed to providing this inclusive environment not only for the members we serve but for our staff members and volunteers.
