Core Program Areas
Program focus areas are based upon both the interests of youth and their physical, emotional, cultural, and social needs. Providing diverse programming helps engage youth with adults, peers, and family members. Participating in our programs can help enable youth to enhance their self-esteem and to develop to their full potential.
Character and leadership development empowers youth to support and influence their Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships with others, develop a positive self-image, and respect their own and others' cultural identities.
Education and career development enable youth to become proficient in basic educational disciplines, apply learning to everyday situations, and embrace technology to achieve success in a career.
Health and life skills develop young peoples' capacity to engage in positive behaviors that nurture their own well-being, set personal goals, and live successfully as self-sufficient adults.
The arts enable youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness. Youth are challenged to appreciate visual arts, performing arts, and creative writing.
Sports, fitness, and recreation enable youth to develop positive use of leisure time, skills for stress management, appreciation for the environment, and social skills.
