Decade of Difference

Ten years ago, the world was very different for kids. Options for quality after-school programs and necessary services for families were not as available.  It was in that world that caring, concerned school staff and community leaders banded together to form a fledgling nonprofit that would grow into a change-making, innovative organization that positively affected and improved the landscape for children and families of all abilities throughout Wooster.

2024 marks the 10th anniversary of Boys & Girls Club of Wooster. Since our first day of Club in January of 2014, we have worked hard to make a difference in the lives of young people through providing safe places and structured programming. And now it’s time to celebrate! All of Wooster played a crucial role in the enduring history of the Club and we encourage you to participate in the storytelling and celebration this coming year.

Our Impact

Every conversation, every word of encouragement, every moment of consistancy, every granola bar, every high five;

Makes an Impact on a child.

Dear Stakeholders,

We want to address the recent media reports regarding State funding cuts affecting the Boys & Girls Club of Northeast Ohio and how they might impact our Club. We are confident in our ability to adapt and overcome these challenges, and we are grateful for your continued support.

 

Our commitment to the youth of Wooster remains steadfast. Our programs’ continued success and growth are a testament to the resilience and dedication of our community and supporters. While reducing state funding presents new challenges, it also underscores the critical importance of private contributions to our mission. We are proud to stand with such a dedicated community.

 

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our donors, whose contributions have been pivotal in maintaining our firm footing. Your support is now more crucial than ever to bridge the gap left by state funding cuts. We deeply appreciate your commitment to our mission and the children of Wooster. Together, we can ensure that every child in Wooster can access the resources and opportunities they need to reach their full potential. Thank you.
