The club brings meaning, inspiration, guidance and stability to members through targeted outreach programs and services to youth who need us the most, where they need us the most. We impact over 3,500 kids annually. We are changing the odds every day.

Annual club membership is only $10 a year because we want every child to have a chance to participate regardless of financial resources or parental involvement. We are able to provide virtually free services through the generous support of local donors, foundations and the United Way.

Our four locations are open year round for kids from 6 -18 years old with a school year schedule from 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. and summer schedule from 8 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. In addition, each facility is open one Saturday per month.

Each facility provides trained adult staff members, academic support, computer learning labs, art, daily hot meal, gymnasiums, adjacent parks, game rooms, field trips, formal and informal athletic leagues, and much more.
