Clubs members have fun! Members develop a strong sense of belonging through connections they establish with staff and peers. Staff members make the Club feel like home, fostering a family atmosphere and creating a sense of ownership for members.
Through our leadership programs, teens are able to make a profound impact on the club and community. Members help to enhance their neighborhoods in appearance and morale, while raising awareness about the Club. They help within the clubs in many ways and are able to see their impact, encouraging them to continue on a positive path.
Club youth develop meaningful relationships with peers and adults. Staff members actively cultivate such relationships to ensure that every member feels connected to one or more adults and peers. Staff members and peer leaders demonstrate caring, appreciation, acceptance, and proper guidance in their interactions with members.
Our programs are based on a Youth Development Philosophy which inspires the following in each child: a sense of usefulness, a sense of influence, a sense of competence and a sense of belonging.
To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizensread more
