We are proud to support the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Portland Metropolitan Area.
The Portland Police Association worked with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Portland Metropolitan Area to recognize 4 outstanding youth leaders within the Boys & Girls Club Organization. These youth leaders exemplify the the Boys & Girls Club mission to help those who need us most to become productive, caring, and responsible citizens.
It was an honor to surprise them each with some basic necessities along with an ipad. We know that these stars are going to go far and we’re here to cheer them on.
The PPA in collaboration with Central City Concern Alumni, Oregon Jewish Community Youth Foundation, NIKE Community Store, Comcast SportsNet, Soo Bahk Do, and Skate-Like-A-Girl participated in the Blazers Boys & Girls Club Family Fest Event.
Boys & Girls Clubs are located in under served communities and are uniquely equipped to provide enrichment programs to youth while empowering them with a sense of belonging and security.
Clubs surround members with caring, trained staff that engage them in nationally proven evidence-based youth development programs.
Program areas include leadership and community service; academic enrichment; science and technology; performing and visual arts; personal health and fitness; college prep and workforce training; and recreation and sports leadership leagues.
