2020 Annual Partnership
Membership Reimbursement for Youth on Medicaid
In 2020, Amerigroup was a vital partner for Boys & Girls Clubs across Washington State. Their support allowed Amerigroup Medicaid youth members to participate in local Boys & Girls Clubs programs. Amerigroup members are provided FREE annual Boys & Girls Clubs memberships by going to their local Club and identifying themselves as Amerigroup members.
Without this service, many low-income and at-risk kids in our community would not have had the opportunity to be part of Boys & Girls Clubs. The annual membership includes after-school activities, including healthy lifestyles programs, mentoring, and homework assistance.
Communities Served by Amerigroup’s Support in 2020
Amerigroup Holiday Card
Amerigroup supported the creativity and spirit of Boys & Girls Clubs members by having a Seasons Greetings Card Contest. There were over 60 submissions in 2020.
Contest winners were featured on the Amerigroup Seasons Greeting Card, received their own set of cards for their family and friends, as well as prizes for their participation.
In March of 2020 Clubs faced an unprecedented public health crisis impacting programs and, more importantly, the youth we serve. Throughout Washington State, many Clubs saw a huge transition in community need and quickly adjusted to best support our membership.
When Covid-19 forced sudden school closures, Clubs made a commitment to fill the gaps in accessible youth care, food scarcity, and academic support by keeping our doors open for families in need. With out-of-school learning, food insecurity increases, and educational gaps widening, we are doing whatever it takes to ensure every child has equal access to resources, trusted mentors, and safe learning environments.
Amerigroup helped to promote and sponsor the 2020 Washington State Youth of the Year. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the 2020 competition took place virtually with teens from across the state. They exhibited their leadership skills and have demonstrated their ability to represent their peers.
15 Teens competed from across the state of Washington. These leaders are chosen by their local organizations based on their community service, academic success, and personal character.
