Our mission – to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens – encompasses our desire to ensure young people are equipped with the skills and support systems needed to succeed in life. Our vision is to redefine the “success equation” for the nearly 3,000 youth impacted by our staff, programs and services by building an even stronger Club experience, one that is characterized by intensive, targeted support in our three outcome areas:
ACADEMIC SUCCESS – expanded and enhanced programs to ensure members graduate from high school ready for college, trade school, military or employment with a plan for their future.
GOOD CHARACTER & CITIZENSHIP –expanded and enhanced opportunities for members to acquire and maintain a positive self-image, develop positive supporting relationships, become actively engaged in their community, and find and use their voices to become effective leaders and decisions makers.
HEALTHY LIFESTYLES – expanded and enhanced programs for members to adopt healthy lifestyles and build the resiliency skills to avoid risky behaviors, which may hinder their opportunities to reach their full potential.
By providing these opportunities, we will be able to help young people advance through the necessary development milestones needed to grow up to become “productive, caring and responsible citizens.”
