The Club Experience:
The Youth Club fills the gap between school and home. We provide welcoming, positive environments in which kids and teens have fun, participate in life-changing programs, and build supportive relationships with peers and caring adults.
Our Impact plan calls for the Youth Club to focus on three essential outcomes for Club members: academic success, healthy lifestyles, and good character and citizenship. While they are separate in many ways, they add up to the most essential outcome of all – young people who are prepared to enter the adult world as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Our Youth Club provides young people with:
A safe place to spend time during non-school hours and the summer as an alternative to the streets or being home alone.
A chance to play, have fun, laugh and learn.
Opportunities to build new skills that raise each child’s belief that he or she can succeed and receive recognition for personal accomplishments.
Ongoing relationships with caring adults and connections to new friends in a positive environment, reinforcing a sense of belonging, personal accountability, civility and civic responsibility.
Generation-changing programs that support a commitment to learning, positive values, healthy habits and high expectations for success as an adult.
