“So much that I have learned about myself are things that I have learned from the Club. Whether it was going to the library to sit down and focus on my homework, playing new and unique games in the gym, or learning new art styles in the Art Studio, it all made such an impact.” – Madison, 2022 Charlestown Club Youth of the Year
