Our staff members are caring youth development professionals who are trained to work with young children and teens. They mentor, guide and form positive relationships with youth. Our staff provide a safe and learning-centered environment in order to nurture each and every child that enters our doors.
Kids and teens will love coming to the Club because of the fun atmosphere, friends and caring staff. They will also greatly benefit from engaging nationally recognized youth development programs that help them prepare to become healthy, productive adults. Our programs engage young people in activities with adults, peers and family members that enable them to learn powerful life skills and introduce them to new experiences. To view your Club’s sample daily schedules, visit your child’s Club page. Programs are age-appropriate and, based on the interests and needs of the boys and girls we serve, our Clubs offer diverse program activities around the following three areas:
Club members participate in Power Hour daily at our Clubs. Power Hour is homework help that encourages Club members at every age to become self-directed learners. Tutoring is also available for those interested. To learn more, talk to your Club director today.
All Club members are served a snack and a drink at the Club daily.
Transportation from your child’s school to our Clubs may be available. For specific information on bus numbers, routes and other questions related to transportation, please contact our administrative office at (803) 324-7920. You can also visit your districts’ website to view bus routes:
