The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem engages a Formula for Impact that ensures that success is within reach of every young person who walks through our doors.  The goal is for all members to be promoted from one grade to the next, and on track to graduate from high school, with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.

This Formula is our road map for ensuring that young people have a positive, impactful Club experience and, ultimately, achieve the important outcomes that lead them to great futures.  It is accomplished by employing caring adult professionals, using nationally tested, evidence-based programs and understanding that we are Powered by the Community.
