Academic Overview


Academic Success is one of the priority outcomes Boys & Girls Club of Glacier Country strives to accomplish. We want to ensure that every youth that attends the Club on a regular basis has academic success.

This includes graduating from high school on time with a plan for their future. Whether they plan on attending college, trade school, the military or go straight into the workforce, we want to help them be prepared.

 

CareerLaunch is a job-readiness and career-preparation program that offers a variety of activities to hone teens’ decision-making, problem-solving and critical-thinking abilities—important skills for workplace success. Youth get the chance to explore various careers based on their interests and talents, determine the corresponding educational path they need to pursue, and map out a plan for their future.
Digital Literacy Essentials—builds foundational technology skills like online safety, typing, web search, media collaboration and gaming.
-- Money Matters promotes financial responsibility and independence among Club members ages 13-18 by building their basic money management skills. Participants learn how to manage a checking account, budget, save and invest. They also learn about starting small businesses and paying for college.
Power Hour-- helps Club members ages 6-18 achieve academic success by providing homework help, tutoring, and high-yield learning activities and encouraging members to become self-directed learners.
Project Learn is a holistic strategy supporting learning in Clubs. Project Learn is intended to complement and reinforce what youth learn during the school day, while creating experiences that invite them to fall in love with learning. Rooted in social-emotional development practices, programs in this area enable all youth to be effective, engaged, adaptive learners who are on track to graduate with a plan for the future. As an informal learning space, Clubs have an opportunity to offer both remediation and enrichment, all while inviting youth to discover and pursue passions that connect to future opportunities. Project Learn includes experiential learning, so that youth learn actively, through a "hands-on and mind-on" approach.
Summer Brain Gain— Summer learning loss has a devastating effect on America's kids, especially those who don't participate in enriching summer activities. That's why Boys & Girls Clubs of America is pleased to share Summer Brain Gain – a fun, interactive learning program designed for summer in the Club!
Study Island-- For students to develop a deep level of mastery, they must encounter a concept multiple times and in multiple ways. With Study Island, students can practice new concepts and go back to concepts they've learned in the past to build mastery over time and prepare for state assessments. The Boys & Girls Club of Glacier Country has purchased this software to ensure our members have the tools they need and to boost student outcomes with K-12 standards-based formative assessments, integrated high-stakes test preparation, and ongoing practice for math, ELA, science, and social studies.
Diplomas 2 Degrees—is a college readiness program that provides a range of services to guide Club members as they work toward high school graduation and prepare for post-secondary education and career success.
STEM—Boys & Girls Club of Glacier Country is committed to closing the opportunity gap in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) with innovative and creative programs, activity ideas and resources for the youth we serve. After-school and summer learning environments provide unique opportunities to advance STEM knowledge and increase interest in STEM-related careers.
