The Club Experience:

The West Cook County 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 focuses on three essential outcomes for our members: academic success; healthy lifestyle choices; and good character and citizenship. While these aspects of life are separate in many ways, they add up to our goal: helping young people to enter the adult world as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

 The West Cook County Youth Club provides young people with:

  • A safe place to spend time during non-school hours and the summer as an alternative to being on the streets or staying at home alone.​

  • A chance to play, have fun, laugh and learn.

  • Opportunities to build new skills to raise confidence 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 that reinforces 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.
