Mental health struggles have been increasingly apparent as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic for everyone, but especially for the youth in our community. Some youth just need a person to talk to, and others are in need of a positive influence in their life, or some additional guidance. Volunteer mentors are paired with a Club member to meet on a weekly basis to encourage and support them, and provide them with a positive role model. Activities during the mentoring session will differ depending upon both the member and the mentor.

About Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington

Location:

5109 NE 82nd Ave, Suite 205, Vancouver, WA 98662, US

Mission Statement

To enable all youth, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential and be the productive, caring responsible citizens they can be.

Description

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington seeks to provide a positive environment, quality programs, and lifelong learning skills for all school age youth in Vancouver and its surrounding areas, with special concern for those coming from disadvantaged circumstances. Instead of walking the streets or being home alone, youth come to the Club where trained professionals provide: a safe environment for kids to have fun and be themselves; constructive programs that channel youthful energy into challenging pursuits; and supportive relationships that help build young people’s self-esteem.
