TEEN LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
Utilizing resources and lessons from our nationally-recognized teen leadership progam from the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, our Teen Leadership Program aims to focus on our Four Areas: 1) Community Service, 2) Academic Success, 3) Career Preparation and 4) Teen Outreach. Our Teen Leadership Program plans to reach our Four Areas through leadership and character sessions, pulling from aspects from our pre-teen leadership program, Torch Club, and our teen leadership program, Keystone.
Focusing on building culinary and kitchen fluency and skills, Tasteology (in conjunction with Bro Code and Girl Code) provides boys and girls hands-on opportunites to learn to bake, cook and other ways to create monthly themed appetizers, entrees and/or desserts.

Teens will be able to have time in our Club gym, playing teams sports such as basketball, soccer, volleyball and other sports. On Thursdays, teens will play either soccer (1st and 3rd and 5th Thursdays of every month) or volleyball (2nd and 4th Thursdays of every month)
JR MUSIC PROGRAM
Teens will experience what it means to be a DJ by learning on specialized DJ equipment and programs, expressing themselves through lyrics with local poets, creating their DJ persona and digital logo with local digital artists and photographers, and showcasing their DJ skills and techniques in front of their peers.
