Our Impact

BGC Canada 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. BGC Kawarthas has made positive life-changing impact on children, youth and families through supportive programs, community initiatives, and financial assistance.

"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." Amy Terrill, Executive Director BGCKL
