Character & Leadership Programs

The Character & Leadership Development programs empower youth to support and influence the Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships with others, develop a positive self-image and good character, participate in the democratic process, and respect their own and others’ cultural identities.

  • Keystone Club

    The Keystone Club is a unique leadership experience that provides opportunities for young people ages 14 to 18. Both in and out of the Club, youth participate in activities in three focus areas: academic success, career preparation and community service. With the guidance of an adult advisor, Keystone Club has a positive impact on members, the Club and the community.

  • Torch Club

    Torch Clubs are small-group leadership and service clubs for boys and girls ages 11 to 13. Torch Club is a powerful vehicle through which Club Staff can help meet the special character development needs of younger members.
