Our Mission & Work

Our mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.

We implement evidence based programs with the goal of accomplishing three priority outcomes. First, we want all of our members to achieve academic success by graduating high school on-time with a plan for post-secondary education or employment. Second, we to help our members to have good character and citizenship. This means we help them develop a moral compass and become engaged citizens in their communities. Lastly, we want every member to achieve healthy lifestyles. This means they know what healthy life decisions are, physically and emotionally, and they avoid risky behaviors.


Membership at the Club begins with a simple registration form. There is a $20 registration fee. During the summer there is a $35 a week fee, and during the school year there is a $10 a week fee. No child is denied membership based upon inability to pay, and there is financial aid available.


During the school year, we provide transportation to the Club from the following schools:
Hampton Elementary, Valley Forge Elementary, Eastside Elementary, Harold McCormick Elementary, Westside Elementary, Keenburg Elementary, Hunter School, TA Dugger Junior High, Happy Valley Elementary, Happy Valley Middle & Happy Valley High School.
