We have already held a BBQ, a young adult yoga program, sent kids to camp, held a second year of Pilot for a Day, and have so many more events coming!
WISH is back again this year and will run from March 31st to April 11th.

The 2022 2nd annual Golf for Kids' Sake Tournament was a blast, bringing in $12,000 to help fund the path to a brighter future for kids in Island County!
Join us on the green as we Golf for Kids' Sake! This tournament is a fun-filled day of games, contests, prizes, golf, and more.

Thank you to everybody who donated and volunteered at our Big Rummage Sale! We are humbled and grateful to be supported by such an amazing community. Your generosity with this event has helped us raise $3,000 for our youth mentoring programs!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Julie Langrock Memorial Scholarship Dinner! Your generosity in Julie's memory helped us raise over $8,000 for our scholarship fund!
The $2500 Julie Langrock Memorial Scholarship is sponsored by BBBS of Island County and is open to graduating seniors on Whidbey Island who were either a Little in our program or who volunteered as a Big.
This scholarship was created in memory of our friend, beloved former Executive Director and board member, and fellow defender of potential, Julie Langrock. Julie's dedication to the youth in Island County was a spark of inspiration for so many. With this scholarship, we hope to continue to ignite the potential of youth for many years to come.
100% of proceeds will go towards the Julie Langrock Memorial Scholarship fund.
This summer we joined Cascade Aviation for a second year in a row, as they took our youths through an aviation ground school before hitting the skies with EAA 818 Chapter Pilots. Eight youth experienced what it's like to be a pilot for a day, help the pilots fly planes, and join the Young Eagles program! We look forward to many more days in the clouds with these two amazing organizations! If there are any interested Littles and/or High School Bigs aged 11 to 18 who would like to join us next time, call or email us to sign up!
