The Club is an after-school experience that empowers teens (ages 13-18) to find their passion, accomplish their goals, and take control of their future by learning about areas of interest. Club staff work with teens as they learn to think critically, use their voice in healthy ways, and discover who they are and how their purpose intersects with their world.
