                 YOUTH-of-the-YEAR PROGRAM

          (l. to r.) Daniel Davila, Diamond Bayron, Briana Johnson, Joseph DeShields, Demi Torres, Tierra Hollins

The annual Youth-of-the-Year Program is an important event in our program year, serving as a character and
leadership building experience for the participants, and inspiring hundreds of younger club members to utilize their
Kips Bay years to be the best that they can be. The program is an expression of a youth-development strategy that
we employ throughout our curriculum -- to continually give opportunities for accomplishment and to recognize it in
ways small and impromptu as well as formally. Here are the finalists for the 2009 program. Joseph DeShields was
selected as Club Youth of the Year, who will represent Kips Bay in the state and national program.

                             MISSION STATEMENT
   The mission of Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club is to improve and enhance the
   quality of life for all young people, ages 6 to 18, with special emphasis on
   those who need us most. Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club exists to assist as many
   young people as possible to realize and achieve their potential for growth
   and development, and to attain the skills necessary to live and succeed in
   a complex world.

                                               visit us @ the new
President’s Message


In 2008 Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club completed its 93rd year of operation and 39th
year at its flagship Lucile Palmaro Clubhouse. Our membership of young people
totaled nearly 13,000, enrolled at eight sites in the Bronx and Camp Sebago in
Harriman State Park.

Kips Bay continues to make an enormous difference in the lives of many more
young people than we might have imagined a short ten years ago. At each service venue our professional staff sets a
high standard for after-school activities and fosters an environment rich in mentoring. On a daily basis we say to each
youngster: “Welcome, participate, make new friends and learn about yourselves, leaving as more capable, competent and
talented members of our vibrant society.”

When I first visited the clubhouse, there was a wood-working shop; it is now a dance studio. We have added a swimming
pool, the Bronx’ only ice skating rink, a gymnasium/performing arts hall, and even an air-supported dome for year-round
sports. Our programs offer more diversity and opportunity than ever in our history. Sports and social recreation are just
the beginning. Our scholarship awards now help 78 outstanding club members attend private high schools and colleges.
Our remarkable summer employment program places more than 1,000 teens. We sponsor both on-line and in-person
college visits. With the benefit of a 2008 federal grant secured by Congressman Joseph Crowley, we offer a pilot anti-obe-
sity program we call “Get Fit, Get Light.”

In late 2009 we will open a second clubhouse in the West Bronx Heights, an area of great need whose residents are eager-
ly awaiting a state-of-the-art Boys & Girls Club facility. In recognition of the generous support of the family of our recent-
ly deceased President of the Board of Trustees, Fritz Coudert, we are proud to name the new West Bronx facility the
“Frederic R. and Margaret Coudert Clubhouse.”

Looking ahead, our challenges are many and varied. Some of our traditional funding from municipal sources has already
been reduced. Foundation gifts are understandably down. The new Coudert Clubhouse will add to annual membership
by 3,000 youngsters and require one million dollars in annual operating costs.

I thank each of our professional staff members led by our Executive Director, Dan Quintero, for their dedication. I also
thank my colleagues on the Board of Trustees, supporting organizations and individual donors for their partnership, their
financial contributions and their confidence that our programs make a difference!

Thank you all.

Paul H. Ross
President of the Board of Trustees

Dear Friends of Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club:

Yes, it’s tough. Fundraising from foundations, corporations, individuals, government -- all
down. But you knew that. If endowments are down, or sales, or a family’s income is
diminished or worse, charitable giving is affected.

What is to be done? In November of 2008 our finance committee met to reduce the
newly adopted FY 09 budget by 8%. We froze vacancies and that has reduced expens-
es further. We have reduced retirement contributions for staff, and reduced program-
ming hours for youngsters. More is on the table.

What has changed? In the most fundamental way, nothing! We are still the positive
place for kids. Youngsters still pursue a sports passion, get help in math, learn to
swim, enjoy a hot dinner while waiting for a working parent to come home, or join the
K-Company and perform at the circus…

At Kips Bay it is the Best of Times. And we ask for your partnership…again.

      Annie Dickerson, VP Singer Family Foundation, presents Daniel Quintero, Executive Director of Kips
      Bay Boys & Girls Club, with a munificent first-time gift of $50,000 on behalf of philanthropist Paul
      Singer. Paul H. Ross, President of the Kips Bay Board of Trustees, jointed Quintero in welcoming
      Dickerson and Margaret Hoover to the flagship Lucile Palmaro Clubhouse.

Kips Bay’s standing with Major League Baseball was demonstrated at this year’s All-Star game celebrations, promoted
through the City as “Fanfest.” Fifty (50) of our youngsters stepped off the red carpet parade of All-Stars in mid-town, and
our playground at the Palmaro Clubhouse was replaced compliments of Major League Baseball.

 We call it “Get Fit, Get Light,” and it is our new obesity prevention program funded with a Center for Disease Control and
 Prevention grand sponsored by Congressman Joseph Crowley. The program combines vigorous exercise in “life-long”
 sports with instruction in nutrition and healthy living habits. The national crisis in youth obesity is greatly accentuated in
 the Bronx, as shown in data from the Family Weight Management Program of nearby Jacobi Medical Center, which
 helped us to design the program.

                  IN MEMORY

                                      The Bridge Builder

                                      An old man, going a lone highway,
                                      Came, at the evening, cold and gray,
                                      To a chasm, deep and wide,
                                      Through which there flowed a sullen tide.
                                      The old man crossed in the twilight dim,
                                      For the sullen stream had no fears for him,
                                      He turned when he reached the other side,
                                      And built a bridge to span the tide.

                                      "Old man," cried a fellow pilgrim near,
                                      "Why waste your strength with building here,
                                      Your journey will end with the ending day,

                   EVALUATING OUR WORK
A time of economic downturn, when donors and government funders must make hard decisions
regarding where they put their dollars, accentuates our burden to demonstrate that Boys & Girls
Clubs both enhance young lives and have long-term positive effects. For us the gold standard
in arguing for the value of our work is demonstrated in the three national alumni surveys con-
ducted for Boys & Girls Clubs of America by Louis Harris Associates, most recently in 2007.
Alumni reported that Boys & Girls Clubs continue to have both immediate and long-lasting
impact on their lives. Among the key findings:

   1. Up 5% from 1999, 57% of alumni said their Club literally saved their life.

   2. Overall, 91% are satisfied with their adult life.

   3. 61% became more committed to their education because of Boys & Girls Clubs.

   4. 28% would have dropped out of high school if not for their Club.

   5. Nationally, 21% of African-American males do not graduate from high school,
      while only 2% of Boys & Girls Club African-American males do not finish.

   6. 34% of African-American Boys & Girls Club alumni earned a 4-year degree,
      compared to the national rate of 16%.

   7. 51% achieved a higher level of education than they thought possible because
      they were inspired by their Club participation.

We believe that these results would be fully mirrored in a sample of Kips Bay alumni based
upon our observations, what our current Club members and alumni tell us, and the fact that
Kips Bay is universally recognized as one of the premier clubs in the national network.

Nevertheless the responsibility to continually assess and refine our outcomes is always pres-
ent. Accordingly, beginning in early 2008, Kips Bay began to work with consultant John La
Rocca of The Rensselaerville Institute to increase our skills in measuring outcomes from spe-
cific activities. We began with the pilot obesity-prevention initiative referenced elsewhere in
this annual report. With Mr. La Rocca’s assistance outcomes were identified and projected
outcomes were established. In the first pilot cycle of 60 participants we found that: 41%
achieved a satisfactory level of nutrition knowledge, 30% modified their eating behavior in
healthy ways, 67% exercised vigorously for 45 minutes twice a week for 8 weeks, and 83%
lost at least 2% of their starting weight. This outcome quantification will continue as an ongo-
ing priority.

Numbers of participants in activities also help to tell our story. For example, in program year
2008 1,013 teens were placed in summer jobs, 52 youngsters participated in the Bronx’ only
hockey instruction program, about 800 enrolled in some component of the baseball program,
1,400 got help with home work, 32 talented youngsters were members of the K-Company
touring dance and vocal troupe, and 78 (triple the number from 4 years ago) received our
scholarships to private high schools and colleges to cite just a few participation statistics.

Executive Director’s Message

It is with great angst that I address you this year with the acknowledgement that
we are all not doing as well financially as we have in the past. That being said,
our experience during the tough economic times is that our services are needed
much more, and the demand becomes greater.

While we have taken steps as an organization to retool, retrench, and tweak how
we deliver our services, we’ve been fortunate thus far not to downsize what we
consider one of our most valued resources: our staff.

As we move forward, we are in the midst of concluding the construction on our new West Bronx site, while also imple-
menting many new and needed programs. These include: Obesity Prevention, Media Arts Workshops, and Passport to
Manhood. So while we have been fiscally conservative, we are still on the cutting edge of program development and meet-
ing the needs of our children.

In the 2009 program year we anticipate between 13,000 and 14,000 children. These children would not be able to take
advantage of our very comprehensive and diverse services, e.g., job readiness, citizenship and leadership programs, den-
tal services, technology, SAT Prep, and college readiness programs — along with our physical education and recreation
programs — were it not for our loyal institutional and individual donors. So many of you join us every year to take part in
and appreciate the biggest and best Show House in the nation. We are deeply grateful. Your attendance and ongoing
support of our organization is important. The work we do is life changing for youngsters 6 through 18 and we cannot
accomplish it without you.

So now more than ever we ask for your help to help our children. Please consider donating time, resources, and rela-
tionships to our shared mission. Times are hard but together we can develop this city’s youth so they can be prepared
for the challenges of tomorrow. The Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club rests on the shoulders of so many individuals...just like you.

On behalf of the over 13,000 children in our programs, I thank you.

Daniel Quintero
Executive Director

                                                                                 Daniel Quintero playing baseball at Kips Bay.
                         Invest With Us
In Boys & Girls Clubs we often say that the most important thing that we, as administrators,
must insure is that, every day, each child who walks through the door is met by an adult pro-
fessional who cares.

For Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club, this is an enormous responsibility, given that 2,200 youngsters
walk through our doors every day...more than 13,000 unduplicated Club Members this year.

This is our promise to you when you invest your dollars and your time with Kips Bay: We will
provide an environment, beginning with a talented and dedicated staff, that nourishes and
guides every child and young adult.

 Social Recreation director Danny Rivera exemplifies the commitment we live by every day:
     Each child who walks through the door is met by an adult professional who cares.
