Helping youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills for participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of these programs. They also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.
The Education and Career Development Core Program Area enables youth to become proficient in basic educational disciplines, apply learning to everyday situations and embrace technology to optimize employability. Our aim is to ensure that all Club members graduate from high school on time, ready for a post-secondary education and a 21st-century career. The main centers for this core program area are the Power Hour Center, STEM Center and the Technology Center. Kids come to these centers to do homework, work on computers, participate in hands-on science experiments and Have Fun!
