Boys & Girls Club of the Northern Plain Resource Development
Boys & Girls Club of the Northern Plains, Inc. (BGCNP), a
non-profit organization led by a Board of Directors, began as a
single club site in 2003. The organization has grown to five units
and one Club extension in three South Dakota communities:
Brookings, Flandreau, and Yankton with over 3,500 youth members.
BGCNP works to carry out their mission: to inspire and enable all
young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their
full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens by
offering quality programming. Programs are implemented to ensure
all youth are in a prime position to be academically successful,
practice healthy habits, and portray good leadership skills for a
$25 annual membership. The goal is to work primarily on long term
sustainability: marketing systems, outreach processes, social
media, donor acquisition and retention best practices, building a
donor base, public relations, curriculum development, relationships
with community groups that can help us find those who need us most,
recruiting more families and kids, food program development,
finding unmet needs, building a volunteer base. To ensure these
projects are a success, VISTAs will need the following
skills/characteristics: positivity, self-starter, hardworking,
integrity, honesty, passion for the mission, customer service
skills and preferably able to talk to a group of people. VISTAs
will leave the Club knowing they contributed to the sustainability
of a safe, positive place for youth development for years to come
and impacting hundreds of youth. Vistas will have a full day of
training with our full-time staff every month and opportunities for
other trainings throughout their service time. Start in February of
2021 and carry their service through for one year. To learn more,
please call or email Kelsie Slovek at 605-692-3333 or
