United Boys & Girls Club: A Noozhawk Special Project

Complete index of articles and resources on a series sponsored by the Hutton Parker Foundation

This is the index page for Noozhawk’s special spotlight project on the Santa Barbara-based United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County. The nonprofit organization is trying to raise $300,000 by April 30.

The United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County serves more than 900 students each day during the school year and 600 students in the summer at four facilities: Carpinteria, 4849 Foothill Road; Goleta, 5701 Hollister Ave.; Lompoc, 1025 W. Ocean Ave.; and Santa Barbara West, 602 W. Anapamu St. The United Boys & Girls Clubs also runs the 55-acre Camp Whittier a residential camp located off of Highway 154 near Lake Cachuma.

In an innovative partnership, Noozhawk and the Hutton Parker Foundation have created a package of media grants to showcase four Santa Barbara County nonprofit organizations through a story-telling, branding, marketing and social-media campaign. Noozhawk writers will be reporting on these special series while providing critical insight into the world of nonprofit organizations and highlighting exceptional achievements in an effort to improve community discussion and awareness.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
