Good Character and Community Engagement

Building Tomorrow’s Leaders

We provide unique opportunities for youth of all ages to give back to their communities and discover their ability to lead.

Every year, we provide opportunities for Club members to participate in community service and leadership programs, giving youth insight into how they can impact the world around them. Through these experiences, youth develop a deeper understanding of responsibility, social justice, and the importance of service to others. By the time they leave the Club, youth have a stronger sense of purpose and belief in their own power to create meaningful change.

Signature Programs

All of our locations provide leadership and community service opportunities throughout the year. Please contact your local Clubhouse for more information about programs offered.
