The largest childcare provider in the greater Phoenix Area, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley empowers kids and families by providing high quality and affordable programs including summer camps, after-school enrichment activities, arts, physical fitness, character development, education and academic support, and leadership training.
Having served more than 19,343 youth, the organizations fills a critical after school service need that focuses on outcome-driven experiences. To achieve this, the organization’s mission depends heavily on the right data to prove the right outcomes. By incorporating TraxSolutions® integrated software across all of its sites and leveraging Participant Management, the organization can efficiently and effectively demonstrate academic success, community philanthropy, health and wellness progress, socio-economic benefits, operations and volunteer data, and more.
A recent merger of two larger organizations resulted in what is now Boys & Girls Clubs of the Valley.
The merger created the opportunity to integrate data across the organizations and streamline operations.
Alignment of the data across all sites supports accurate reporting at the site and enterprise level.
The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis (BGCSTL) is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. The organization provides after-school, teen, sports, and summer programs in a safe environment where youth can learn and grow.
Serving more than 4,000 youth annually, the organization plays an integral role in the area’s youth development and after school programs. For the most significant impact, the organization leverages the power of TraxSolutions® to prove its outcomes, and support a data-driven programming approach. Supporting this strategy is the organization’s use of SurveyTrax, a key component to collect and analyze important feedback from those served.
