Resource Development Toolkit

Resource Development Toolkit

There are many compelling reasons why you should seriously consider developing, or even bolstering, your Resource Development program. Private support can be the added margin of excellence your Club needs to be elevated to the next level of success, even if you have the funding needed for daily operations. Fundraising is more than raising money to accomplish an agenda or pay staff.

BGCA Native Services would like to recognize and thank our NAC Resource Development Committee Members for their time and commitment in creating culturally relevant tools for all Native organizations across the Nation to assure the greatest benefit to Native Clubs.

Native Mentoring Media Toolkit

In collaboration with BGCA’s Federal Grants Department, BGCA Native Services is pleased to present the Native Mentoring Media Toolkit. Mentoring has been part of our Native communities’ systems for generations and emphasizes an approach that involves listening for understanding, and focusing on the journey, inner wisdom, and reflection. Becoming a mentor is one of the most important things you can do to improve the lives of young people in your community. In order to provide culturally relevant support for mentor recruitment efforts at your Clubs, the Native Mentoring Media Toolkit provides helpful resources including a mentoring recruitment poster, sample recruitment letter templates, a mentoring fact sheet, frequently asked questions, and a PowerPoint Presentation on the importance of mentoring Native youth.
