Testimonials

The Boys & Girls Club played a significant role in assisting me in moving forward and being successful. With the support and motivation of my foster parent, my teachers, and the staff at the Club, I have transformed into a new person who has the desire and ability to go to college and seek a career in social work.
Kim Hines, Whatcom County 2014 Youth of the Year
“I’ve journeyed through elementary, middle, and high school facing many obstacles. I’m near college graduation and I always credit the Boys & Girls Club for supporting me through my adolescence and as a young adult. I cannot picture where I would be in my life without the life lessons and experiences I’ve gained being a Club member.”
Vang Le, Whatcom County & Washington State 2010 Youth of the Year
“Everything you’ve seen or heard about me began with lessons I learned to live by at the Club.”
“Like many Club alumni, I can honestly say I don’t know where I’d be today without the Club. Thanks to Boys & Girls Clubs from the bottom of my heart, for all you have done for me, and for so many others.”
“I always go back to lessons learned at the Club. We discovered there was something higher than ourselves, and that giving back to others was what really mattered.”

They had a blast hanging out and playing with all of the kids! Good luck Audrey on all your new adventures! :) (3 photos) ... See MoreSee Less

I had the pleasure of attending the Whatcom County Boys and Girls Club annual Breakfast. When 8 year old Peyton was asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she did not hesitate to say "Sheriff of Whatcom County." Great photo of the current and much better looking future Sheriff!

Meet Jacob! For almost two years, Jacob has been participating in programs at the Bellingham Clubhouse - programs like Power Hour and Reading, Bike Club and Science. Pictured here is Jacob joining in one of the science and engineering projects Club staff recently conducted. Spaghetti and marshmallow structures are a great way to introduce lessons about shapes and mass, along with problem solving and critical thinking - all disguised as FUN! ... See MoreSee Less
