Our dedicated staff and comprehensive programs expand children’s horizons by exposing them to technology, the arts, and more.


We help members focus on academics, college, and career choices through homework help, STEM, Bridge 2 the Trades, Creative Writing Club, and career awareness programs.


We encourage our members to express themselves and build confidence through visual and performing arts including music lessons, Video Production Club, talent shows and dance classes.

Leadership and Character Development

Members develop a positive self-image while supporting the Club’s community through Keystone Club, Young Leaders, Youth of the Year Young Men’s Group, and Young Women’s/Non-Binary Folk Group.
