Real-Life Situation

Help a Student Reach Their Goals

The Boys & Girls Club of Columbus was preparing a high-school student for the State of Ohio’s upcoming Youth of the Year competition.

The staff reviewed the student’s Learning Circle profile and learned that while he had great attendance and behavior in school, he’d recently let his grades drop significantly.

Using this information a staff member spoke with the student and discovered personal issues at home and school had led to the student’s grade drop-off.

The real-time academic data provided by Learning Circle helped the Boys & Girls Club of Columbus address the student’s academic challenges and give him the support needed at the right time.

Use Data to Improve Program Success

Identify children and youth who need community-based intervention and development services – children who wouldn’t have been on their radar without the data.

The Boys & Girls Club of Columbus was working to implement a ‘More Members, More Often’ initiative.  

To do so the organization leveraged Learning Circle to identify youth enrolled in the Boys & Girls Clubs, who were not attending regularly, and who had a high risk profile.  The data uncovered  allowed the organization to serve Club members – especially middle school youth – more effectively.

Since the implementation of the ‘More Members, More Often’ program, teen engagement grew substantially.
