The Clubs offer diverse activities, spanning all program areas, specially designed to engage and motivate teens, and a separate teen center where they can pursue their interests and connect with friends. There are numerous social recreation and sports activities, as well as opportunities to learn and perfect technology skills. We provide the structure for teens to engage in community service projects, and workshops in which they can discuss issues and concerns facing teens today.
Our many programs help teens plan for their future. We offer test preparation classes and College Club, which provides assistance with the application process and offers teens the opportunity to visit colleges and universities. We provide career awareness workshops with guest speakers and teach job interviewing skills. We also offer internships and job placements, both in the Clubs, through our Junior Staff program, and in corporate offices. Our nationally chartered Keystone Club helps teens develop leadership skills and interest in civic involvement.
