Academic Success

Education & Career Development

Educational Guidance

Youth members get the personal assistance they need with the transition from middle school to high school, and then from high school to college from experts at the Club. Middle school students visit private and public high schools, while high school students go on college trips and receive help with applications and financial aid.

Tutoring Program

Every Monday through Thursday about 300 of our youth members get help with their homework from adult tutors, college students, and their peers. They do so in a supportive environment filled with the resources they need for academic success.

Mentoring Program

Our mentors are community leaders who volunteer weekly to provide moral and academic support, plus monitor academic performance for our youth members.

Science Lab

One of our key educational initiatives is introducing and promoting STEM to our members.


Youth members get daily access to the internet through the use of our Clubhouse Network computer lab. Club kids practice Internet safety and explore their creativity through graphic design, music composition, web design, and video production.

Through our partnership with The Clubhouse Network, in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab, members also have access to an international community of creative youth and are able to share ideas and collaborate on a global level.

Career Development

Career exploration and development are integral components of our programs for high school members, emphasizing resume writing and basic work ethic. We assist Club members with summer employment through relationships with area businesses.

Scholarship Program

Education and college are a focus of our Club. We are fortunate to have individuals devoted to helping our kids achieve that dream by providing scholarships.
