Youth Leadership

Helping youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills for participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of our programs. They also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.

The Arts & Music

This year-round program encourages artistic expression among Club members ages 6 to 18 through drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, mixed media, music, and sculpture displayed at local exhibits. We provide a safe and healthly atmosphere for personal expression.

Fitness and Health

With the use of Triple Play: A Game Plan for Mind, Body, and Soul, a comprehensive health and wellness program, we strive to improve the overall health of Club members ages 6-18 by increasing their daily physical activity, teaching them good nutrition and helping them develop healthy relationships. 

 

The Mind component encourages young people to eat smart through the Healthy Habits program, which covers the power of choice, calories, vitamins and minerals, the food pyramid and appropriate portion size. The Body component boosts Clubs’ traditional physical activities to a higher level by providing sports and fitness activities for all youth. Body programs include six Daily Fitness Challenges; teen Sports Clubs focused on leadership development, service and careers in athletics; and Triple Play Games Tournaments, inter-Club sectional tournaments that involve multiple team sports. The Soul component helps build positive relationships and cooperation among young people.

Educational Projects & Tutoring 

We want to engage students in a Project Based Learning format that includes subjects like Math, Science, Reading, Technology, and Language Arts. To take a question or problem, useing research methods, and utlizing educational tools to produce a final result or answer. Students practice presenting their findings to classmates and staff while learning public speaking skills, and stepping out of their comfort zones. Our goal is to prepare them for the next stage in their lives weather it be secondary school or the workplace.

 

We offer tutoring services and credit recovery courses that will allow students to make up ground where they have fallen behind in their regular school day. With a strong relationship to the regular school day staff, we can utlize our efforts to what our kids need most.

Partnership with Local Schools and Community

We strive to have strong relationship with local school systems so that there is a seamless transition from school to after school program.

We also want to reach out to our local communities for service projects like Farm Share, a program that provides fresh, healthy, foods for families in need.
