Programming Overview

Health & Wellness

Programs build the foundational skills of developing relationships, regulating emotions and solving problems. They also focus on communication and decision making, through exploring a range of health topics and behaviors, including substance use, sexual behavior and violence.

Leadership & Service

Programs build leadership with self, leadership with others, and leadership within the community through development of empathy, perspective taking, conflict management, social responsibility and goal setting skills. They give youth the confidence and abilities to create meaningful change in their world.

 

Sports & Recreation

Programs build the competence, confidence and intrinsic motivation to be physically active every day and make healthy eating choices. Through playful experiences and organized sports, members also develop social-emotional skills such as teamwork, impulse control and perseverance. 

Education

Programs complement and reinforce what youth learn during the school day, while creating experiences that invite them to fall in love with learning. Rooted in social-emotional development practices, programs in this area enable all youth to be effective, engaged learners who are on track to graduate with a plan for the future.
