OUR MISSION


At the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Joseph County, we believe that all individuals hear the call to become heroes. Our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens. When Club Members respond to this potential, they become heroes. And when our Great Big Kids answer the call, they become heroes as well.


YOUTH OF THE YEAR


Annually, we nominate a few of our exceptional youth to participate in the Youth of the Year program, a celebration of exemplary youth sponsored by Boys & Girls Clubs of America. These youth accept the challenge to rise above their circumstances and make heroic changes in their lives, Club, and community. On the night of our Greatest Kids Celebration, one youth will move forward as our Youth of the Year candidate to contend for the Boys & Girls Club of America National Youth of the Year.


GREAT BIG KIDS


The Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Joseph County pairs these outstanding youth with adult mentors, who we call Great Big Kids(GBK). Each GBK is paired with either a Youth of the Year or Junior Youth of the Year. While mentoring a youth, our seven Great Big Kids support the Club as advocate fundraisers for the Club, fostering heroism among our youth while giving of themselves in support of the Club.


The journey culminates with an high energy event on April 29th where we celebrate all of our Greatest Kids! The proceeds from this event allow the Boys & Girls Club of St. Joseph County to continue to serve over 1,100 children a year.
