CCYD's Rediscovering Me Clubhouse is an after school program that exists primarily to foster growth and development of youth involved with substance use and abuse. We provide a safe, drug-free environment that highlights individual strengths and helps youth build leadership skills through recovery coaching and engagement in positive enrichment activities.
Like many of the young people in CCYD's Rediscovering Me Clubhouse, Alonzo was walking a dangerous path. His future looked grim, with the possibility of jail or worse on the horizon. Thankfully, he sought refuge within the Clubhouse where he was able to build self-confidence, and develop the attributes that make him an invaluable asset to society. Today he says "Everyday I wake up I am thankful and I still wonder where I would be at without the CCYD program and that keeps me motivated. I'm on the right track and that's where I am going to stay and I would thank the CCYD program for changing my life around and showing me a bright future".
