Florida TaxWatch Report


Florida TaxWatch - Boys & Girls Clubs Report Summary (All State of Florida Boys & Girls Clubs Surveyed)

We are happy to share the findings of the 2013 TaxWatch Report and will continue to serve the children of our community by encouraging improved academic achievement and positive character building.




Student Achievement Findings:


·         Boys & Girls Clubs members perform higher academically than non-participants.


·         Florida Boys & Girls Clubs members achieved a median FCAT reading score one level higher than non-participating students.


·         Club members attend school more often than non-participants, which correlated with higher student achievement, higher grade promotion rates and higher graduation rates (our students note absences at half the rate of non-participants).


·         Club members were promoted in 2010-11 school year at a rate of 86.46%, compared to a promotion rate of only 69.4% among their peers.


·         Club members experienced a grade retention rate one full percentage point lower than non-participating students.




Economic Impact:


·       For each student that is not retained, Florida taxpayers realize a short-term benefit of $9,210, to a long-term, aggregate benefit of nearly $29,080,000 for 100 additional high school graduates.


·         Florida Boys & Girls Clubs members drop-out of school at a rate of less than one-fifth of their non-participating counterparts.




Economic Impact:


·        Non-graduates are more likely to use taxpayer-funded government assistance programs. For example, 45 percent of public assistance recipients were high school dropouts. 


·         High school graduates will earn $290,800 more in their lifetime than non-graduates.




Juvenile Justice:


·         Non-participants are more than twice as likely to be referred to juvenile justice programs than Florida Boys & Girls Clubs students.




Economic Impact:


·         The state of Florida saves $5,000 for every youth that is not processed by the juvenile justice system, and more than $46,000 for every youth that is diverted from an average eight month incarceration.


·         Of the Boys & Girls Clubs participants that are referred to juvenile justice programs, 58% were first-time referrals, compared to only 40% of the first-time referrals coming from their peers.
