Lasting Impression [ˈlæs.tɪŋ ɪmˈpreʃ.ən]

A feeling or effect that continues for a long time.


our mission To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.



W hen I started as a Youth Development Staff at Boys & Girls Club more than 11 years ago, I did not expect to become as passionate as I have about this place and its people. What began as a part-time job has turned into a career I love, a mission that inspires me, and work that challenges me daily. It did not take long to see the immense impact each team member has on the youth in our community and the unique service provided through the Clubs’ whole-youth development approach. It is fulfilling to see the development of a Club member from the first time they join us to when they graduate well-prepared to reach their dreams because they know their potential. lasting impact

It warms my heart to receive messages from parents who observe the value of our partnership with their family. One Club parent recently wrote,

“I just need to thank you! My son is part of the Boys & Girls Club at Eastern Montgomery Elementary and he recently started tutoring through the Club. His grade went from a U to a B. I am so thankful for the support you have provided and grateful for your staff.” The world is a tough place for our young people and has changed drastically even in the 25 years we have served Southwest Virginia. Hardships faced by today’s youth are compounded for those who do not have the same experiences and opportunities as their well-resourced peers. reports that young people who are surrounded by a variety of opportunities for positive encounters engage in less risky behavior and ultimately show evidence of higher rates of successful transition into adulthood. I believe wholeheartedly that we, with the financial contributions and partnerships of many, are serving a critical need in our community and I am incredibly proud of our 25-year history. 2022 was centered around reflecting on the years of service provided, generous people involved, and the number of young lives transformed through our program. If you haven’t had a chance to watch our short film, Impressions: 25 Years of Inspiring Local Youth , I encourage you to do so. We celebrated well! My hope for the next 25 years is that every child and family member who walks through the door of our Clubs feels the warmth, feels the support, and knows that the Club is here for them. Through dedicated community support, we will bring together more people with different beliefs, experiences, and backgrounds and watch our beautiful story continue to unfold.

With gratitude for helping us advance our mission,

Rebekah Meadows, Chief Executive Officer Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA

Dear Friends of the Club,

2022 was a big year for Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Virginia. I am overwhelmed with gratitude when I reflect on the many people who have passionately and generously supported the mission of this critical organization for the past 25 years. In my fifteenth year of board service and year one of my second term as Board Chair, I continue to be impressed by the work of the dedicated staff who work daily to enable local young people to gain experiences and realize their full potential, regardless of their circumstance or background. Having personally grown up in Southeast Roanoke, it is meaningful to see how our program is coming alongside local families to support our next generation of great leaders and decision-makers.

One of my favorite memories from last year was attending our 25th birthday celebration at our Vinton Baptist Church Club. We gave anniversary t-shirts to the kids, brought cupcakes, and helped serve donor-provided pizza. We shared with Club members the significance of the milestone anniversary to help them understand that they are part of something bigger than themselves – that they have a support system full of encouragers who care about them and their futures. We asked what they thought they would be doing at 25 years old. Responses included a singer, a vet, a professional football player, and my favorite, “I want to be working at Boys & Girls Club!” We have a rich history of service in Southwest Virginia and a quarter-century of impactful moments created. I’m hopeful for the lasting impressions still to be made as we look ahead. When you support Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Virginia, you are making a difference and impacting young lives in a transformational way. Thank you to all who engaged in our mission during our celebratory year.

Cheers to 25 years!

OUR FOOTPRINT in Southwest Virginia

“There was an absolute need in Southwest Virginia. When we started, we had a very passionate board. The first seminal event was securing the building on 9th Street. The second seminal event was Mike Wise starting the Delta Dental Pro-Am for Kids. That really brought the name of the organization to the valley.” —John Dyer , Founding Board President 1998-2001 “We have a story, so many stories, of kids who you actually see the impact today as adults and what they are able to accomplish because of Boys & Girls Club having been in their life at an early age.” —Michelle Davis , CEO 2017-2022 “You lead for the success of students, not for the comfort of adults. I question: What are we doing to make sure our students are successful? What can we do to better our kids when we have them for that short

One of the things that Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Virginia does so well is providing mentors, people who can walk alongside, encourage, teach,

CLUB EXPERIENCE The Club Experience is one in which members feel safe both physically and emotionally, have fun, receive support and recognition from caring adults who set expectations for them, and feel a sense of belonging.

“I've always wondered what was in here [Taubman Museum of Art]. When I saw all of the art pieces, it made me wonder if I could make something like that myself one day. They [Boys & Girls Club staff] inspire us to do the unthinkable.” — Kayden , Club Member

“What I enjoy most about teaching here is seeing the impact and influence you can have on kids. Everybody needs someone who cares. Each day, I consider what I can do to make at least one student think

she saw me, she helped me, or she gave me positive advice. ”

— Tanicia , Club Staff Member and Alumna

“It has felt like we are a team. We are a team seeking to work together to provide a safe learning environment in our community.”

— Travis Russell , Senior Pastor, Vinton Baptist Church

“As kids start aging out of the daycare at 12 years old, a lot of these kids are going home alone. They don't have the structure needed at that age. Boys & Girls Club fills that void.” — Carie Kingery , Board Member and Club Parent

“We want our students to excel. Boys & Girls Club has done a tremendous job helping us close achievement gaps since the COVID-19 pandemic challenges. The social and emotional pieces are important as well. We prioritize building relationships. I know the Club staff also make that one of their top priorities.” — Brandon Keith , Shawsville Middle School Principal

“Everything happens for a reason. You have to live with the fact that [things in life] happen and there is nothing you can do to change it. If I didn't have the Club, I'd probably be falling behind in school. The mentors and staff are always there to help you out.” — Reagan , Club Member

“We do a lot of arts and crafts with the kids. We run a STEM program. We have a partnership with Virginia Tech's Robotics Club. It has been great to watch the kids take interest in that type of thing.” — Brad Wooten , Eastern Montgomery Elementary Club Unit Director

PARTNERSHIP and Program Highlights C rop Culture is a program for teens and tweens at our 9th Street Club in Roanoke City and we had a successful 2022 program year. Crop Culture provides a hands-on learning experience that teaches youth about agriculture and the environment. The program focuses on gardening, harvesting, food prep, business, and environmental education. Each March through September, Club members grow their own fruits and vegetables in the Club garden, which they can then harvest and use in cooking classes. Youth learn the importance of healthy eating and sustainability, as well as the science behind plant growth and development. The kids then sell their produce at the market. Environmental education is a key component of Crop Culture. Youth in the program discuss and explore composting, recycling, and conservation. This program teaches children about the impact that human activities have on the environment and how they can make a difference in their communities.

In October, Crop Culture members presented at the Harvest Festival at Morningside Urban Farm. They handed out free Crop Culture pins and flower and veggie seeds while practicing their communication and PR skills by taking turns at the table with their advisors. LEAP (Local Environmental Agricultural Project) and HCAT (Healthy Community Action Teams) partnered with us by providing financial support, kitchen space, and programmatic support, as well as the market space for Crop Culture members to sell their goods. This provides members with additional collaboration opportunities and professional guidance. Crop Culture members also worked with I <3 SE , a local non-profit that endeavors to beautify Southeast Roanoke, on a mural in the garden at our 9th Street Club. Kids of all ages can enjoy the new and improved space and Crop Culture members see it as a reminder of their hard work over the course of the season. Crop Culture is a fun and engaging program. By providing children with hands-on experience in gardening, farming, and environmental education, the Club is helping them develop important skills and knowledge that will benefit them throughout their lives. Through these programs, children are learning about the importance of agriculture and the environment, as well as the value of hard work and dedication.

TWO JIM BARKER SCHOLARSHIPS AWARDED TO DESERVING RECIPIENTS F ounded in 2020, Mike and Danielle Wise established the Jim Barker Scholarship Fund to provide Boys & Girls Club youth with hope and a plan for their future after high school. Available to any young person who has been a Club member for at least two years, award winners may use scholarship funds for 2-4 year college, technical, or trade school expenses. In 2022, Lawrence Moore and Hunter Muddiman received a total of $13,800 to assist with their post-high school pursuits.

LAWRENCE MOORE attended Boys & Girls Club from kindergarten through 12th grade and graduated from Salem High School. He served on BGCSWVA’s junior staff and held the title of the Club’s 2021 and 2022 Youth of the Year. Lawrence matriculated to James Madison University to study biochemistry. HUNTER MUDDIMAN graduated from William Byrd High School and matriculated to Savannah College of Art and Design. He credits his experience at Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA for fostering his love of art at a young age. Thank you to all of our donors who have contributed to the Jim Barker Scholarship Fund. Learn more at .


Mike Wise, who passed away in December 2022, was a fierce advocate for our mission and cared deeply about creating great futures for the youth we serve. He was passionate about creating opportunities for Club members, which led to the creation of the Jim Barker Scholarship Fund with his wife, Danielle. His legacy will live on through this generous endowed gift. To call Mike a philanthropist would be an understatement. His unwavering passion for giving back to the community, which was instilled by his parents, has been made more than evident by the numerous local and nonprofit boards on which he proudly served, including Board Chair for Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Virginia between 2004 and 2006. During that time, he was an active volunteer fundraiser for BGCSWVA. Mike chaired our 2008 capital campaign, which secured over $400,000 to create our 9th Street Teen Center. Mike was also a founder of the Delta Dental Pro-Am for Kids. We truly miss Mike and appreciate all he did for our Clubs. We continue our good work in his honor.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Virginia was thrilled to receive a generous $30,000 gift from the Childers Family Foundation, administered by the Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia, to fund our transportation needs. We purchased a 2018 Dodge Grand Caravan which has been an excellent addition to our fleet. In the summer of 2022, our large bus broke down while transporting our kids and needed extensive repair. The bus is used multiple times per week during our summer camp season, and throughout the school year. Additional funding from the estate gift was used to meet this critical need. We are extremely grateful for the forethought of Earl and Ethel Childers to create this fund. Their legacy support is helping us advance our mission of enabling youth to reach their full potential.
