This collaboration allows Creston youth to connect with nationally recognized Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

The Need

Boys and Girls Club programs and services will fill a much-needed gap by establishing programming onsite at Creston elementary school. Currently there is no afterschool programming available to youth in this distant rural community.

  • 32% of the students enrolled are minority.
  • 50% of students fall below reading and math proficiency levels.
  • 48% of students served are considered economically disadvantaged.

The Outcome

At the end of the three-year collaboration:

  • 100% of the families in need will have access to afterschool services.
  • 95% graduation rate.
  • 90% of participants at or above grade level in math and literacy.
  • If needs present themselves, establish a full-day, year-round program in perpetuity.

The Impact

This Creston site growth will be methodical and each phase of the programming  rolled out based on present community needs. Sustainability will be achieved by well-planned, vetted and thoughtful funding partnerships.
