Creating Impact...

Our Clubs provide a fun, safe and constructive environment for kids and teens during out-of-school hours. Community-based and led by professional staff, Clubs serve small towns, large metropolitan areas, and public housing communities, as well as those who live on U.S. military installations across our two states. We offer programs and services to help young people succeed in school, develop leadership skills, and maintain healthy lifestyles.
