Physical distancing measures and isolation have left many children and youth in our country at risk of developing or experiencing worsening mental health problems, including trauma-related stress, anxiety, depression, and loneliness. Reports of positive mental health have dropped by 20% among 15 – 24-year-olds. 68% of young people who previously sought mental health support are now experiencing significant challenges.

Your donation will bring us closer to our goal of helping every young person access what they need to succeed.

As the 200,000 kids and teens we support at 775 locations across Canada head back to school this September, your generosity will allow our Clubs to continue providing safe places, programs tailored to community need, and healthy, empowering relationships that will help young people adjust to this new reality.

Attending a Boys and Girls Club makes a difference. A recent study at a Boys and Girls Club shows that young people who participate in Club programs struggle less with academics and are more engaged in learning. They avoid risky health behaviours. They have less interaction with the justice system. They have better social outcomes.

 

In addition to donating online, you can also support Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada through our amazing corporate partner initiatives.

The Boys and Girls Club of Peel has been changing lives of young people and families since 1983.  As a not-for-profit, charitable organization its focus is to engage, empower and help at-risk children, youth and families from low-income communities. They provide a safe place for these individuals to participate in fun activities that support the development of confidence, learning and positive relationships.

The Boys and Girls Club of Peel utilizes a respectful, inclusive and engaging approach to serving the community. Our programs support young people and their families to overcome barriers, enhance their lives and empower them to reach their potential. We strengthen our participants’ well-being, build their capacity to learn and develop our community’s future leaders.

Over 1,200 children and youth are served in the after-school and summer programs. Youth participants, both current and former, represent over 70 per cent of the agency’s employee base and over 90% of volunteers. Over 26 post-secondary scholarships over a six-year period were awarded to Peel youth from the Boys and Girls Club of Canada

As a Not-for-Profit organization, they are always in need of the basic quality of life necessities to ensure that youth and families have fair access to a lifestyle, comparable to the middle class of our society.

Based on the 2016 Census Data released on May 3, 2017, 47 per cent of the Region of Peel’s population makes under $40,000/annually with almost 19 per cent of them making under $10,000.

“It’s the diversity of the Region of Peel and its collaborated willingness by our partners, supporters and residents that has made the Boys and Girls Club of Peel a success over the last 30+ years. As we strive forward into the second half of 2017 we are excited about what lies ahead especially as we prepare to return to offering services and programs in the Town of Caledon this fall. It is because of our relationships with the youth and families in the Region why we do what we do. Knowing we are changing and impacting lives in a positive  For us it is simple, we are here to serve, not to be served,” said resource development manager Michael J Gyovai.
