The Mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County is to inspire and enable the youth of our communities to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
To accomplish our mission, we practice a set of principles which reinforces:
- A sense of competence - the feeling there is something boys and girls can do well.
A sense of usefulness - the opportunity for kids to do something of value for other people.
A sense of belonging - the Club is a setting where kids know they have a place where they "fit" and are accepted.
A sense of power or influence - a chance for boys & girls to be heard and to influence decisions.
When these principles are fully implemented, the self esteem of boys & girls is enhanced and an environment is created which helps them achieve their full potential.
