The Boys & Girls Clubs of Yellowstone County would like to recognize our agency partners who play a key role in the success of our members. Thank you for all you do to support our kids!
Billings Public Schools
Our partnership with Billings Public Schools goes well beyond the space we share in two Clubhouses to include the curriculum expertise we have used to improve the value and impact of our enrichment programs and the transportation we use to get kids from school to the Club in the Heights.
Lockwood Public Schools
Since November 2002 the Lockwood Schools have allowed us to utilize space in their facilities to provide a world-class Club experience for the children in the Lockwood community. Additionally, throughout the summer they provide our members with Breakfast and Lunch everyday.
Montana State University - Billings
Each Spring and Fall the College of Education at MSU-B provides 20 to 30 sophomore students who each volunteer 45 hours a semester working directly with our Club members. In addition to the volunteer hours they provide, many of these volunteers end up joining our professional ranks.
Montana Office of Public Instruction
Not only do we partner with OPI to provide 3 meal each day during the summer program but we have also worked with the 21st Century Community Learning Center program to provide critical funding to all of our Clubhouses, which has allowed us to dramatically increase the number of the kids we serve as well as the quality of the experience those members get.
Montana Department of Public Health & Human Services
Two long-standing partnerships with the DPHHS provide the Club with significant support every year to ensure that kids who need us most have access to hearty snacks and meals during the school-year and scholarships to cover their membership fees for our summer program.
Billings Food Bank
A long-time partner of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Yellowstone County, the Billings Food Bank has provided not only healthy and nutritious meals for thousands of our members but also provides hundreds of Club members with opportunities from learning how to cook in their Fortin Culinary Center to learn more about the challenges in our community through regular service projects.
Big Sky Science Education Enhancement
Provides our members with an opportunity to explore the fun side of science and technology through the building and launch of their own rockets.
United Way of Yellowstone County
Since 1971 the United Way has been an important partner providing a portion of the funds used to serve our members each and everyday.
Billings West-end Rotary
In 2014, Rotary members raised $5,000 to help the Bench Clubhouse replace the flooring in their main Club space and make much needed improvements to the area, which now houses the Club's learning garden.
Billings Rotary - Downtown
In 2014, Rotary members raised $2,500, which allowed the Lockwood Clubhouse to complete several important renovations to their new Media Center.
