National Youth Outcomes Initiative Survey
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Minnesota participates in an annual survey that will be used to track the well being of members in Boys & Girls Clubs nationally. Our Club is one of a group of Clubs across the country participating in this survey that asks how members feel about the activities and time they spend in Boys & Girls Club programs, education plans, and involvement in community service and work.
Additionally, the survey asks about the attitudes and health behaviors of members, including questions about nutrition and physical activity. Members will not put their names on the survey. No site or member will ever be mentioned by name in a report of the results.
We would like all members at our sites to take part in the survey, but the survey is voluntary. Survey participants can skip any questions they do not wish to answer.
If you would like to see the survey, a copy is available upon request. Please contact the site manager. You may review the survey during regular hours.
If you do NOT want your child to take part in the survey, we have a form for you to sign. The form is available from your site manager.
If you have any questions about the survey, please contact the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Minnesota at (320) 252-7616.
