Welcome to the Club, Teens!

Here at the Club, you can make new friends, spend time with existing friends, and have fun in a safe, supportive and positive environment.
Just as importantly, you can build new skills that will help you now and in the future!

But don’t just take it from us. Hear from other teens to learn how the Club helped them get into college and figure out their path to success.
What We Do

We offer programs that help you with everything from daily homework, to applying to college, to finding scholarships and job opportunities.

Stop by your local Club to take a tour, meet some great staff, and learn how to become a member!

CareerLaunch

We help you learn professional skills that you can use in the workplace. We also visit Bay Area companies in a wide range of industries to give you insight into what it’s like to work there.

College Prep

We work with you to prepare you for college. From college tours, to free SAT prep classes, to financial support for college applications, to college scholarship opportunities, we are by your side throughout the college application and acceptance process. Last year, we connected teens to $945,000 in college scholarships!

Money Matters

We teach you the ins and outs of budgeting, managing a checking and savings account, investing, paying for college, and much, much more.

Part-Time Jobs & Internships

We teach you the ins and outs of budgeting, managing a checking and savings account, investing, paying for college, and much, much more.

Youth of the Year

Every year, we choose one outstanding teen from each Clubhouse to participate in our Citywide Youth of the Year program, a four-month program that will build your leadership and public speaking skills, while preparing you for success in college and beyond.

Keystone Club

Every year, our youth-run Keystone Clubs host a community service project and attend the National Keystone Conference to meet other Keystone Club members from across the country. The Keystone Club program has a powerful impact on many teens each year.

Camp Leaders-in-Training (LIT)

Leaders-in-Training (LIT) is Camp Mendocino’s job readiness and character development program for teens ages 15-17. Each summer teens participate in the LIT program for between one session and four session (sessions are ten days long). Visit Camp Mendocino's website to learn more.
