Boys & Girls Clubs of Wisconsin

Registered Principal Details

Business Or Interest:
We serve over 134,000 youth at 158 sites in 57 cities across Wisconsin, more than any organization outside of our public school system. With two thirds of our kids living outside of Madison and Milwaukee, we support programs and funding that allow all of Wisconsin Clubs to continue to offer unique programs that promote the positive development of young people.

Lobbying Interests:
We focus on programs that result in measurable outcomes for youth in academic achievement, career skill building, positive mental health, juvenile crime reduction, prevention of opioid abuse, and constructive civic engagement. We support and track legislation and budget matters that impact school age youth statewide, including stimulus funding, child care licensing, and after school program funding.
