My name is Ashton Brown, and I am the lead staff at the Travis site. Here is a little about myself; I am from Elysian Fields, TX. I have an 8 yr old daughter and a baby on the way! I have been with Boys & Girls Club for almost 8 years. I have a passion for working with children! My staff includes Sara Bliss, who has been an educator for over 28 years and has worked for the club for 8 years. Linda Foster, who has worked with MISD for 26 years. Shawanna Hayes, who has been with the club for 3 years, she is a student at ETBU seeking her Masters in Counseling. Allena Bliss, who has been on and off with the club for about 5 years.
At the Travis site this year we plan on having a great deal of educational fun! From 3pm-4pm we have our "Power Hour", which is our homework hour. During that time we have four different tutors provided for us, for your child's convenience. From 4pm-4:30pm we have snack that is provided. That is also the time we start our Boys & Girls Club programs. We teach a Healthy Habits program, which deals with healthy eating. We teach Triple Play which deals with physical activity and being active everyday. We teach Youth for Unity which teaches the children about how to feel about ones self and those around us. Those are only a select few programs we teach. We also have a splendid mentor program! My intention is for your child to come home talking about our program , and have them ready and willing to come back the next day for more!
Here is to a superb year, parents!!!
The Red Shirt Society
We believe that youth should be recognized and rewarded for outstanding achievement. We used the icon, because these kids are the bomb! Each month, a Youth of the Month is selected from all of the members at each Unit. These youth are chosen for their exemplary behavior, strong character, and active involvement in developmental activities. We are proud to present these outstanding youth here: (scroll down to see each month’s choice). The Club's T's come in an array of colors, but only a Youth of the Month can receive a red shirt.
Skylah Slaten Skylah was chosen for youth of the month because of how far she has come in opening up. I know for some kids it's hard to come out of that shell. She always has a smile and is ready to lend a helping hand!!! Skylah has been a club kid for a very long time seemed only fitting to chose her!!!

The Formula for Impact:
Young people who drop out of high school significantly diminish their chances to secure a good job, earn a decent salary and have a promising future. Therefore, high school graduation is a priority outcome for Club Members.
The Formula for Impact:
To achieve the priority outcome of Healthy Lifestyles, Members will adopt healthy diets, practice healthy lifestyle choices and make a lifelong commitment to fitness. Young people who develop healthy eating and exercise habits during childhood and adolescence are more likely to maintain these habits, along with the associated health benefits, into adulthood. Monitoring health-related factors such as physical activity, nutrition and physical fitness, as well as members’ avoidance of risky behaviors will help Clubs effectively target programming and interventions, and will enable Clubs and BGCA to demonstrate our positive impact on the health and well-being of members.
The Formula for Impact:
Good Character and Leadership
Good Character and Citizenship are integral to a young person’s ability to become a productive, caring, responsible citizen. Members’ participation in community service, avoidance of involvement with the juvenile justice system, and the development of conflict resolution skills are key indicators that our Clubs will use to demonstrate our positive impact on Members’ character and citizenship.
Our Club is
Our Clubs generates fun for our Members. Each child develops a strong sense of belonging through connections they establish with Staff and peers. Staff make our four Clubs feel like home, fostering a family atmosphere and creating a sense of ownership for our Members.

Our Clubs are a safe haven where Members feel physically and emotionally secure at all times. Club Staff, facilities, program offerings and age-appropriate settings create stability, consistency and a sense of safety for members.

OPPORTUNITIES AND EXPECTATIONS

RECOGNIZES OUR KIDS
