UnitedHealthcare (UHC), in collaboration with BGCWA, has identified a cohort of Clubs to receive funding in support of prevention programs. Funds will target communities and Clubs with the greatest need, reflecting higher Medicaid populations. UHC has committed funds aimed at fostering a positive impact on youth mental health through programs focused on Healthy Lifestyles. The partnership will advance our mutual efforts to foster healthy lifestyles among Washington’s youth.
This partnership also provides a vital benefit to UHC Medicaid youth members to participate in local Boys & Girls Club programs. UHC members are provided free annual Boys & Girls Clubs membership by going to their local Clubs and identifying themselves as UHC members. The annual membership includes after-school activities, including healthy lifestyles programs, mentoring, and homework assistance.
Youth of the Year 2022 Sponsorship
The nine Youth of the Year Finalists from across Washington gathered together for the first time at Bell Harbor Conference Center in Seattle. These young people provided service to their communities such as volunteering in their local Clubs, their local food banks, as well as being strong examples of perseverance and positivity to their peers and families.
Congratulations to Johanna & Sam for being selected as the 2022 Washington State Youth of the Year Winners!
Thank You UnitedHealthcare for Supporting this Event!
2020 Mental Health Grant Program
Four Club Organizations benefitted from programmatic investments made with the help of UnitedHealthcare’s grant program. Clubs received grants ranging from $3,000 to $6,000 to assist with mental health programs for their members.
Laptops Donated by UnitedHealthcare
In the month of April UnitedHealthcare donated laptops to Boys & Girls Clubs across Washington. With virtual learning still prevalent in many areas, Boys & Girls Club members were connected to greater educational opportunities, unleashing their full potential as students. Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue used the UHC donated laptops to jump start their robotics program. Club members continue to thrive thanks to the support of UHC.
