Parent Handbooks

Dear Parent/Guardian,
Welcome to Boys & Girls Clubs of Topeka. Our purpose is to inspire and empower Club youth to achieve success and to nurture young people’s self-esteem by instilling in them a sense of belonging, usefulness, influence and competence. We assure positive developmental experiences through five key elements for positive youth development :
1) Providing a safe, positive environment
2) Fun
3) Supportive Relationships
4) Opportunities and Expectations
5) Recognition
In addition, we offer targeted programs in three key youth outcome areas:
1) Academic Success – our vision is that every member progresses to the next grade level on time and graduates with a plan a place for the future
2) Good Character & Citizenship - to inspire generation of civically engaged youth who balance self-concern with the concern for others
3) Healthy Lifestyles – empowering youth to make healthful choices
It is our commitment to do everything possible to ensure youth have opportunities outside of school and home that promote healthy development and enable them to be successful adults.
Thank you,
Dawn McWilliams
Chief Executive Officer
