Boys & Girls Club in Indian Country is still growing!

Last week, Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County hosted a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony at the Nespelem Boys & Girls Club. The Nespelem unit launched with a soft opening in June, and since then the Club has had 231 youth registered. Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County’s Chief Executive Officer Bill Tsoukalas thanked the Colville Business Council (CBC) for developing a relationship with Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

The Club is housed in the Nespelem Community Center, and has a computer lab, activity room, and an office. Since the soft opening it has already experienced great success, with an average daily attendance hovering around 60 youth during the summer and 20-30 afterschool. This location will be reaching an entire group of Native youth that had previously not been reached on the Colville Reservation, providing much needed programming to benefit the youth.

Congratulations to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County and the whole community in Nespelem for starting this much needed program. It’s just one more community that will be enabling their youth to reach their potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
