Pushing Forward into a New School Year

There is always a sense of excitement and optimism at the Club when the kids return to school. Whether it is the shiny new backpacks and supplies or stories about great new teachers and friends, there is an unmistakable buzz in each Clubhouse when the kids show up after school. This year is no different despite the ongoing pandemic-induced obstacles our community is working through. The kids’ enthusiasm is refreshing, and it brings a level of focus to our incredible team of professionals who strive to provide a world-class daily experience to more of those who need us most.
While the kids have the usual level of enthusiasm about the new school year, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Yellowstone County is battling the staffing challenges so common to every other business. This means we lack enough part-time professionals to safely serve those who need us most in each site we plan to operate this school year. Specifically, we have delayed opening two Micro-Sites that will serve Broadwater, Eagle Cliffs, and Washington Elementary students and have been forced to temporarily close the Castle Rock Clubhouse, which effects kids from Sandstone Elementary and Castle Rock Middle School.

How You Can Help

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Yellowstone County is working on multiple strategies to improve the appeal of our part-time employment opportunities; however, we could use your help. If you know a fun-loving local college student or other individual who would get excited about helping our members find their own GREAT FUTURE, please help us connect with them. You can simply forward them Sheri Potter’s email at spotter@bgcyellowstone.org or apply online at begreatyellowstone.org and follow the Join Our Team link.
On behalf of our incredible team and the hundreds of kids who count on the Boys & Girls Clubs of Yellowstone County each day, I would like to thank you for helping us find the professionals we need to save more lives!
