About Toronto Kiwanis Boys & Girls Clubs:

Founded in 1921, Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Clubs (TKBGC) aims to provide safe, supportive spaces where children and teens can gain confidence, develop skills, and build positive relationships. The charity operates five locations in Toronto’s Regent Park and Trinity Bellwoods neighbourhoods.

According to its annual report, Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Clubs runs programs focusing on five main areas. These include Academic Success, After-School Programs, Nutrition and Food Security, Youth and Employment Training, and Youth Justice.

Academic Success programs provide mentoring and scholarships to help young students explore their interests while receiving support. In F2019, the charity states that it provided 6,400 hours of mentoring and tutoring services. It also awarded 21 scholarships to 19 recipients.

After-School Programs offer supervised activities to students outside of school. A typical day at an after-school program would consist of around 30% physical activities, 30% community programs, 20% nutrition education, and 20% personal health education. In F2019, TKBGC members spent 299,250 hours at after-school activities.

Nutrition and Food Security services teach young people about healthy eating habits and life skills. In F2019, the charity reports that it offered 3,440 hours of food literacy and nutrition programs. Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Clubs also serves food to students in after-school activities. It served a total of 126,200 snacks and meals in F2019.

Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club also reported 30 clients undergoing leadership training and 15 clients enrolled in counsellor training.

Results and Impact

In January 2017, Boys and Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) released an extensive program evaluation. The evaluation found a high social return on investment (SROI) of 10:1. For each dollar invested in the organization, the report estimated that BGCA generated a return of $9.60 in earnings for clients and costs saved for their communities. Some Canadian Boys and Girls Clubs may have similar results, but this is not possible to determine for TKBGC with its current reported data.

While Ci highlights these key results, they may not be a complete representation of Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Clubs’ results and impact.
