Family PLUS: Helping build stronger families in the Truckee Meadows

The Boys & Girls Club recently initiated our Family PLUS (Parents Leading, Uniting Serving) program to help provide support to families and empower them to fully participate in their children’s lives. Families are the primary influence for children and Family PLUS helps to provide a model that can connect parents with resources. There are five main components to the program. They include:

Kinship Care to support extended family that are primary caregivers

Father Involvement to increase the role of fathers in their children’s lives

Economic Opportunity to empower families to increase their financial potential

Outreach Strategies to reach under-served parents

Family Advocacy Network for parents of youth in the Club’s SMART Moves program

Parent Advisory Council

The mission of the Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows Family PLUS Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is to gather suggestions for programming and services that would be helpful to parents of Club members. Parents on the council will also be given the opportunity to lead and influence other parents at the Club by supporting any new programs or events as suggested by the PAC.

There are currently openings on the Parent Advisory Council.

The ideal council member will:

  • Be parent or guardian to an active member of the Club
  • Be willing to commit to the scheduled meetings
  • Contribute and fully participate in the meetings
  • Be a team player
  • Have a positive attitude
  • Listen to and treat others with respect
  • Honor the rules, regulations, and procedures of the Club
  • Fulfill responsibilities and assignments as necessary
  • Represent the Club in a professional manner at all times
