Our Impact

Demonstrating Impact

Boys and Girls Clubs across Canada (BGCC) have a positive life changing impact on children, youth and families. The Models for Success outcomes measurement model enables Clubs to increase the quality and value of programs for children, youth and families and have the evidence to demonstrate this impact.


The model has Short, Mid, and Adult outcomes. Developed by Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada it highlights the common features and core programming areas offered by Clubs, and the positive outcomes for children and youth that are achieved through them. Elements are grounded by the latest research in child & youth development, and Club Core Values.


Programs enhance young people’s physical & mental health & well-being, mitigate poverty, enhance educational outcomes, & help set children & youth on the track to success!

"Our programs keep children safe when parents are at work; keep youth off the street and teach them leadership skills; provide youth counselling and support to families; keep young people active and physically fit; and give them access to caring adults that can model positive values and guide them toward good decisions. These programs are even more critical for families facing financial challenges." Scott Robertson, Executive Director BGCKL


The Club uses evaluation tools to collect information such as assessment tools (listed below), surveys, face to face meetings. Evaluations offer feedback from the lens of children, youth, families, partners etc. and assist with the development of future plans/ improvements. The Club strives to incorporate the outcomes measurement model into training and the evaluation process to promote impacts and outcomes achieved. Current quality assurance and assessment tools include:
-HIGH FIVE (programs for children ages 6-12)
-RAISING THE BAR (licensed childcare programs)
-DECA Devereux Early Childhood Assessment tool (licensed childcare programs)
-CANS Child Adolescent Needs Assessment tool (Support services)
-Cafas Child Adolescent functioning assessment scale (Adventure Quest)
-Dessa Deveraux student strength assessment tool (Reach)

In our “village” of Kawartha Lakes, the Boys & Girls Clubs make a major contribution to “raising the children”. They truly do make a difference – and they are “a good place to be! “ K. & I. Goodhand

2012 Youth Symposium "Speakers were powerful, especially the two youth who shared their personal stories. Several youth have spoken up and told someone about needing help. What better testament to the day than to have this outcome!"
