We're delighted to report that the Victoria TELUS Community Board has provided us with a grant of $9,950 to run the Warrior Women program at our Norgaard Club in Central Saanich. Warrior Women is a fun and active program for Aboriginal girls ages 9 – 14 from the Tsawout, Tsartlip, Pauquachin, and Tse:cum First nations. Our project goals are to introduce participants to healthy lifestyle options, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, create positive body image in participants, encourage girls to build a positive cultural identity, and participants will learn about healthy relationships. All of our activities will include traditional Aboriginal teachings. There are active games and sports, arts and crafts, cooking, out trips, and community engagement. We provide transportation which removes participation barriers; access to nutritious snacks; and increase their exposure to physical activities.  Thank you TELUS!

Mad Hatter's Gala a Great Success!

The Westin Bear Mountain was a magical place on the evening of April 2nd after it had been transformed into Wonderland for our inaugural Mad Hatter's Gala!  Thanks to the support of all of our sponsors, including Presenting Sponsor Bear Mountain, guests, auction bidders and volunteers, we raised over $50,000 for after-school programs for kids in our community. We are amazed by everyone's generosity, fun and style, with so many getting in the spirit of the event with costumes and/or hats.

Put March 11, 2017 in your calendar as we will be returning to the Bear Mountain Resort & Spa for the 2017 edition of the Mad Hatter's Gala!

Another Pink Tutu Walk!

Ryan reprised the walk he undertook in 2012 to raise awareness about the impact - to both victim and perpetrator - of bulling and to raise funds for Boys & Girls Clubs after-school and anti-bullying programs.

The “Tutu Walk For Hope” – inspired by Pink Shirt Day, Ryan walked non-stop on Monday, March 14th leaving from Nanaimo’s Woodgrove Mall to Boys & Girls Club’s head office (123 km) in a pink tutu and tights in a quest to raise $5,000 to support Boys & Girls Club’s programs. He arrived just after 11 am accompanied by a few superheroes he picked up along the way!  To date he has raised about $2,000 and we encourage people to make a donation to help Ryan meet his goal of $5,000 - donations can be made online at http://www.bgcvic.org/get-involved/donate-online/ and select Operating/Programs and then Other – type in Pink Tutu or Tutu Walk.

Great Futures Start Here PSAs

The little miracles that happen every day at Boys & Girls Club Services of Greater Victoria can be summed up in the new public service announcements that have been launched by our national office.  We are sharing the three videos, about Anthony Bennett, Dr. Jean Clinton and Taylor Hall, which illustrate how Boys & Girls Clubs create positive opportunities for young people to dream, grow and achieve their full potential.  We just never know how far a child can go when we show kids we care and that we believe in them.
