The Boys & Girls Clubs of Yellowstone County would like to recognize our agency partners who play a key role in the success of our members. Thank you for all you do to support our kids!
Billings Public Schools
Our partnership with Billings Public Schools goes well beyond the space we share in two Clubhouses to include the curriculum expertise we have used to improve the value and impact of our enrichment programs and the transportation we use to get kids from school to the Club in the Heights.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Yellowstone County in partnership with Billings Public School District intend to submit an application to the Montana Office of Public Instruction for a 21st CCLC grant. The grant will support an academic-focused after-school programs for students at Beartooth, Bench, Bitterroot & McKinley Elementary Schools. If you have any comments on the proposed program, please contact our President & CEO Brian Dennis at 406-245-4457. There will be a copy of the application will be available for public review after submittal at the Program Support Center, which is located at 505 Orchard Lane.
Lockwood Public Schools
Since November 2002 the Lockwood Schools have allowed us to utilize space in their facilities to provide a world-class Club experience for the children in the Lockwood community. Additionally, throughout the summer they provide our members with Breakfast and Lunch everyday.
Montana State University – Billings
Each Spring and Fall the College of Education at MSU-B provides 20 to 30 sophomore students who each volunteer 45 hours a semester working directly with our Club members. In addition to the volunteer hours they provide, many of these volunteers end up joining our professional ranks.
Montana Office of Public Instruction
Not only do we partner with OPI to provide 3 meal each day during the summer program but we have also worked with the 21st Century Community Learning Center program to provide critical funding to all of our Clubhouses, which has allowed us to dramatically increase the number of the kids we serve as well as the quality of the experience those members get.
Montana Department of Public Health & Human Services
Two long-standing partnerships with the DPHHS provide the Club with significant support every year to ensure that kids who need us most have access to hearty snacks and meals during the school-year and scholarships to cover their membership fees for our summer program.
Big Sky Science Education Enhancement
Provides our members with an opportunity to explore the fun side of science and technology through the building and launch of their own rockets.
United Way of Yellowstone County
Since 1971 the United Way has been an important partner providing a portion of the funds used to serve our members each and everyday.
