Joie Probst with Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa


Joie’s project goal focused on measuring and enhancing Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa’s health & wellness program called Triple Play while also providing more structure and cohesion across the 5 area Club sites. This was accomplished through observations of each Club site & an organization-wide youth & staff survey. The survey results were then analyzed, which Joie used to create recommendations to improve Triple Play for the upcoming program year and into the future.


  • Observed current Triple Play programming and research similar health/wellness youth programs

  • Surveyed youth & staff on Triple Play

  • Made programmatic recommendations based on data from youth & staff feedback

  • Piloted a middle school swimming program


1500 youth over the span of one program year
