...   Impact & Results


Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.


No Score

We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.

  • The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.

  • The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.

  • The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie’s Vision is: Provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle. To ensure that we operate on this model, we have four key strategic priorities: 1. Increase Program Quality. To achieve greater outcomes for youth and to live our mission, it is critical to achieve a high level of programming quality. Ensuring that each Club site is consistently providing relevant, engaging experiences and opportunities for kids and teens (Optimal Club Experience). 2. Strengthen the Organization. Driving impact and quality requires strong leadership, capacity and capability at every Club site. This includes leadership at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie and board level, as well as unit leaders and youth development professions. 3. Diversify Organizational Resources, Visibility and Community Presence. Advocate for the Clubs to build awareness and importance of out-of-school time. Identify ways to collaborate and partner with other like-minded/missioned organizations and to diversity our human and capital resources. 4. Reach More Youth. As we pursue the first three priorities, we will aim to achieve incremental growth. This includes increasing daily participation in our programs; actively recruit and retain new teen members and finally look for long-term growth.


What are your strategies for making this happen?

Success is a three-pronged strategy: 1. Build Youth Capacity: By implementing learning programs that build academic and social-emotional skills among youth of all ages. The Clubs focus on providing enriching experiences that develop essential skills such as communication, self-efficacy, perseverance, goal setting and problem solving. All these skills support success. Programming will be culturally responsible, inclusive and adaptable to meet youth where they are. These programs include opportunities for career exploration. 2. Build Staff Capacity: Equip staff with the tools, resources and professional development they need to cultivate a love of learning. We aim to build staff capacity to facilitate meaningful learning experiences throughout the Club day, including Academic Success programming. Professional development will elevate staff knowledge to facilitate Academic Success programs and experiences for youth to promote the development of effective, engaged and adaptable learners. 3. Build Club Capacity: Build Club capacity to develop a culture that loves learning and promotes interest in the exploring postsecondary opportunities. By assessing Club capacity to offer high-quality Academic Success programming, Clubs will focus efforts on developing a culture that promotes skill building, creativity, curiosity and imagination. The culture will establish strong local partnerships that support postsecondary readiness.


What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

As stated earlier, we do stand proudly on the shoulders of generations of Club leaders, staff, volunteers and members who have valiantly positioned our Movement to have an even greater impact. Our governance is board driven. The board determines the goals of the organization and the CEO makes sure those goals are made a reality by working with the Senior Leadership Staff. All information then flows to the Director of Programs, Member Services, Office Managers and Youth Development Professionals (YDP). The Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie has set goals for our Club members as well: Respect the Club, Respect Yourself; Respect Others. These expectations are very similar to the expectations that Muncie Community Schools implemented in the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) . These expectations are in each Club site, YDP’s praise and reward Club members for following the expectation, and re-teach behaviors as needed. When training our Youth Development Professionals (YDP’s), the Clubs look at what trainings are required for school employees by the Indiana Department of Education. Trainings that YDP’s participate in are CPR, First Aid, AED, Child Abuse Prevention, CACFP Training (Food Safety), PBIS, Suicide Prevention, Bloodborne Pathogens and Bullying Prevention.


How will your organization know if you are making progress?

To determine our success at helping youth achieve these three priority outcomes (Academic Success, Good Character, and Healthy Lifestyles), the Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie participates annually in the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s National Youth Outcomes Initiative (NYOI). The NYOI uses a common set of research-informed indicators to measure the degree that Club members are achieving these three outcomes. The Clubs 2019 NYOI report stated that 91% of youth said that they would complete high school and beyond. In additional, the Clubs will focus on the following metrics as well: • Education – Based on Power Hour with homework completion, high yield learning activities and tutoring. Can also include educational technology programs, Goals for Graduation and other education programs that will assist in impacting reading and math skills and knowledge. a. Pre/Posttest – Woodcock Johnson Reading Fluency (grades 1-12), Woodcock Johnson Math Fluency (grades 1-5), and Woodcock Johnson Math Calculation (grades 6-12). b. Homework Sessions – 30 homework/education sessions. • Career/College - Focus on increasing youth’s knowledge about careers and career tracks. Increase their understanding and attention towards postsecondary education such as college options. a. Career Exploration – 10 career sessions that focus on job readiness, college exploration and careers. Job readiness such as resumes, applications and interest surveys. Career focus such as guest speakers, field trips and career videos. College focus such as college tours, college guest speakers, etc. • Youth Volunteer Service - The participant shall complete twenty (20) hours of volunteer service/sessions. 10 hours can be utilized inside the club, for example: Making cards for veterans or nursing home patients. 10 hours should be utilized outside of the club, for instance: Delivering cards, street clean up, volunteering at a food pantry and other community service activities. • Workforce Development Skills - Ages 10 and up. These sessions will focus on building workforce skills, encouraging Club members towards academic success, high school graduation, goal setting and college readiness, including: Diplomas to Degrees, Goals for Graduation, Money Matters, Ultimate Journey and Digital Literacy. Youth must complete 10 sessions that are 60 minutes long from the above programs in no less than 5 weeks.


What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie’s Power Hour programs main objective is improving proficiency in reading and math by 15% per Club member. Club members learn and develop the daily habits of completing homework in a safe, quiet and supportive atmosphere supervised by youth development professionals who offer both encouragement and assistance. These activities are provided in both group and individual settings. Club members receive a pretest from Woodcock Johnson in reading and math fluency before they start their 30 homework / educational sessions. This allows youth development professionals the ability to see where the struggles are for each Club member. Club members then participate in daily homework / education sessions which focuses on reading and math to help them improve. After the 30 homework / education sessions are completed, each Club member will take a posttest. Club members who have not improved by 15%, will continue with another 15 homework / education sessions and be retested. Here is some of our results from our Club members since being in the program: • Peyton is in 1st grade and started out with a grade equivalency of .70 in reading in September (below grade level). Between September and December 2019, Peyton had an improvement of 75% in reading and is now above reading level for his grade. • Aaliyah is in 3rd grade and had a grade equivalency of 2.80 in math in September (below grade level). By December 2019, Aaliyah had improved in her math score by 321% and now is above grade level. • Caitlyn is in 5th grade and was struggling in math with a 4th grade equivalency. By December 2019, Caitlyn showed an improvement of 140% and went from a 4th grade math level to an 8th grade math level.
