to succeed, to serve their communities, and to share their voice with the world. Club kids have new experiences every day that give hope to those that need us most. This is why 57% of alumni surveyed nationally say the Club actually “saved my life”.

Formula for impact

Academic Success
Every child should graduate high school on time, college or career-ready with the skills they need to succeed in today’s globally competitive workforce. Clubs partner with youth, parents, schools and other community stakeholders to implement three approaches: academic enrichment and school engagement; targeted dropout prevention; and intensive intervention and case management.

Character & Good Citizenship
Developing America’s next generation of world changers starts today. Our country’s future depends on responsible, engaged citizens and innovative, resilient leaders! Helping youth acquire skills for participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of these programs. They also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.

Healthy Lifestyles
Healthy minds need the support of healthy bodies. A future generation of active citizens begins by building healthy habits in our kids. Club programs help develop daily fitness, nutrition education, a positive use of leisure time, reduction of stress, understanding of healthy relationships, appreciation for the environment and social and interpersonal skills.


Our mission is to inspire
and enable all young
people, especially those
who need us most, to
realize their full potential
as productive, responsible
and caring citizens.
