Bryan Zinschlag with Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa


Bryan’s goal was to evaluate and strengthen Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa’s youth leadership and service programs. BGCCI’s National Youth Outcomes Initiative data showed average findings in terms of reported volunteering frequency (in Club and out), reported level of recognition by Club staff, leadership skill development, and other important factors that can be strengthened through leadership and service.


  • Conducted an organization-wide survey about members’ leadership and service experience and interests

  • Leveraged the data from the survey to facilitate conversations with youth members and staff around service programming

  • Planned a Leadership & Service Summit for Fall 2016 for youth to plan an organization-wide service project that all Service Club members can engage in


257 youth daily in fourth grade and above
