Your love can make a difference!
Parents and students alike LOVE Fallon Youth Club. The proof is in FYC’s impact extending far beyond the 5 locations and 2,600 youth served in the Club’s 14-year history. It extends deep into our greater community. Fallon Youth Club gives everyone in the Lahontan Valley a reason to LOVE THE CLUB.
At Fallon Youth Club we believe every child deserves a welcoming atmosphere with positive adult connections. A place where they can learn, grow and realize their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.
We accomplish this by providing critical support to our students in three key areas: social-emotional learning, food & nutrition, and academic achievement.
In these economic times, families bear a heavy load. FYC is there to uplift parents. Parents who are worried about making ends meet can rest easy knowing that Fallon Youth Club will provide their children a nutritious meal and a safe, supportive environment.
“I don't know what I would do without this place! I have 4 kids and would not be able to work over the summer if it wasn't for FYC. My 9 and 7-year old go and love it! They feed the kids, keep them constantly entertained, and truly care about them.”
Our programs uplift children. Kids are able to better concentrate on classwork free from the worry of whether they will have dinner that night, or the necessary support to accomplish homework challenges.
“When I got into middle school some of my friends started getting into trouble, hanging out in the streets, if I didn’t have FYC, I don’t know what I would have done. It kept me busy and I didn’t want to disappoint (staff member). I don’t think I would be where I am, now, I graduated from high school and have a great job.”
Most of all, FYC uplifts the community. Close to 20% of all students in the district attend FYC and are impacted by our programming. Many of our city's youth arrive at school, well-fed, prepared, and ready to learn—which improves the learning environment for all our students.
We are able to provide all of these important services for only $15 a month ($35 a week in the summer), which ensures that all young people, regardless of economic ability, can have access to Fallon Youth Club. Yet the actual cost to our organization is $186 a month, a big leap by comparison. Our fundraising efforts are one of the ways we try to close the gap between fees and the real costs of delivering our services.
Your gift of $10 a month could provide one child with an hour of individual attention– providing them with the support and connection that fosters confidence and academic success.
Your gift of $50 a month could provide games and art supplies that allow students develop creatively while nurturing their self-esteem and social skills.
We cannot accomplish our mission alone. Together, we can do so much more.
The youth are the future of our community, our county, our state, our nation. Please consider a regular investment in Fallon Youth Club and join us in our quest to provide a safe, accessible, and positive place for their development. Your gift today can change the life of a child and the future of our community.
