ACADEMIC SUCCESS

From the moment our members enter the doors of the Club, they are encouraged to succeed academically. It is our goal to make sure our members graduate from high school ready for college, trade school, military, or employment. Homework help is provided every day and specialized programs help promote an excitement for learning. Staff hold our youth to a high standard and help them set goals so that they are prepared for graduation and beyond.

PROGRAMS

BE GREAT: GRADUATE

This program is designed to enhance each Club member's engagement with learning by providing consistent support from caring and trusted adult mentors in developing the academic, emotional and social skills needed to achieve academic success. This program uses the early warning signals -- attendance, behavior and course failure -- to identify youth at risk of dropping out of school.

JUNIOR STAFF

Young people prepare for future roles as human services professionals by participating in career development activities, discovering the importance of community service, building customer service skills and completing a Club apprenticeship. Clubs that implement this program make an investment in the development of Club members’ interpersonal skills, work ethic and sense of community responsibility. Our Club employs four Junior Staff.

CAREER LAUNCH

CareerLaunch encourages Club members ages 13 to 18 to assess their skills and interests, explore careers, make sound educational decisions and prepare to join our nation's work force. Club staff or volunteers help teens build their job-search skills and job readiness by using the CareerLaunch Facilitator Guide and working with teens individually or in small groups.
