Select your Investment Fund:

Academic Success: The First Step to Great Futures

The Clubs provide children with the academic support and resources they need to strengthen their math, literacy, and critical thinking skills, ensuring they maintain on-grade progression, graduate from high school, and are ready for a post-secondary education or career path. Your gift will fund our signature academic programs – Power Hour and Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) Exploration:

• Power Hour: Provides an hour of daily homework assistance with trained staff and tutors and proven intervention programs (Dreambox and Read Live) for students testing below grade level in math and reading.
• STEAM Exploration: Centered on building the skills to analyze data, think critically and solve problems, our members explore their interests through real-world experiences and hands-on projects, such as 3-D printing, building solar kits, and learning computer coding.

GOAL: 100% of members will stay on track in school and successfully progress to the next grade level. Intervention programs in reading and math will help 200 students improve their skills.

Healthy Lifestyles: Physical, Social and Emotional Wellness

A child’s success includes their physical, emotional and social well-being. We teach healthy nutritional habits, host gardening and cooking classes, offer a wide variety of daily fitness activities, provide professional counseling services, and develop positive social skills and relationships. We serve over 100,000 nutritious free meals annually using fresh, local produce – some grown and harvested in our Club gardens! Quarterly sports leagues and free sports camps are open to all abilities, focusing on skill building, teamwork, and sportsmanship.

GOAL: 100% of members will participate in weekly fitness or sports activities, have positive social relationships with peers, avoid risky behaviors, and receive nutritious meals at the Clubs.

Difference Makers: The “Magic” Behind the Club Experience

You can ensure that children and teens are surrounded by “Difference Makers” – our team of professional, caring, responsible adults who are committed to providing a Safe, Fun, Positive Environment; Supportive Relationships; Recognition, Opportunities and Expectations. Our talented and trained youth development staff establish trusting relationships, offer meaningful guidance and make a positive impact in the lives of youth. Your investment in our Difference Makers provides children with mentors, resources, and services to help them succeed.

GOAL:  Our staff of over 50 professionals will receive ongoing youth development training, tools and resources to deliver the best Club experience possible.
