More InformationShow full item record
The Boys & Girls Clubs of South Park (BGCSP) is a youth service 501(c)3 serving Park County, Colorado. With over 60% of Park County’s workforce commuting to another county for employment the need for affordable out-of-school youth care is apparent, but the need for BGCSP goes further. These rural communities need local opportunities for children. This isolated population is a food desert, medical desert, and had limited industry. The schools lack resources and the population is projected to see unprecedented growth over the next eight years. The need for BGCSP is apparent, but what is their impact? The following chapters are an assessment of BGCSP using mixed methods research. Through the use of interviews, ripple effects mapping, various data, finances, club documents and public documents, these chapters were formed. The use of qualitative and quantitative data created a balanced, in-depth picture of this organization’s assets, accomplishments and areas of opportunity.
