About the Clubs


2016 Regional Learning Events

Over 252 professionals comprised of Club staff, leadership, and board members from a total of 49 Native Boys & Girls Clubs gathered together for five regional cluster trainings throughout the year of 2016. This inaugural set of Learning Events provided opportunities for Club youth development professionals to network with others in their region, and to learn strategies and techniques to better serve the youth in their communities.

By offering a diverse range of sessions, professionals of all backgrounds were able to participate in meaningful learning experiences that were applicable to their daily lives. Participants were able to sustain and respect each community’s unique cultural values, traditions, and ways while building upon the shared vision of the Native Services Unit (NSU) and practicing integral concepts of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) movement. The event offered programmatic and grant administration sessions on topics such as planning for safety, managing federal grants, working with teens, infusing cultural values into programming, dealing with conflict, developing resiliency in youth, and learning effective Club leadership. Through these Regional Learning Events and other initiatives, the Native Youth Services Unit provides support and addresses needs specific to Clubs on Native lands.
