Healthy Lifestyles

  • Healthy Habits

    Designed to incorporate healthy living and active learning into every part of the Club experience, Healthy Habits emphasizes good nutrition, regular physical activity and improving overall well-being. The program, for ages 6 to 15, is the “Mind” component of Triple Play: A Game Plan for the Mind, Body & Soul.

  • Mental Health

    As part of our ongoing mental health services, the Clubs partner with local organizations to provide group therapy for members. The Clubs train all staff in mental health first aid so that they’re equipped to identify members in need of additional support. The Clubs also create age appropriate mental health activities during Mental Health Awareness Month and Suicide Prevention Week.

  • Passport II Manhood

    Passport II Manhood promotes and teaches responsibility in Club boys ages 11 to 14. Passport II Manhood consists of 14 sessions that each concentrate on a specific aspect of manhood through highly interactive activities. Each Club participant receives his own “passport” to underscore the notion that he is on a personal journey of maturation and growth. Passport II Manhood represents a targeted effort to engage young boys in discussions and activities that reinforce positive behavior.

  • SMART Moves

    This nationally acclaimed comprehensive prevention program helps young people resist alcohol, tobacco and other drug use and premature sexual activity. SMART Moves features engaging, interactive, small-group activities that increase participants’ peer support, enhance their life skills, build their resiliency and strengthen their leadership skills. This year-round program encourages collaborations among Club staff, youth, parents and representatives from other community organizations.

  • SMART Girls

    SMART Girls is a small-group health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program designed to meet the developmental needs of girls ages 8 to 12 and 13 to 17. Through dynamic sessions, highly participatory activities, field trips and mentoring opportunities with adult women, Club girls explore their own and societal attitudes and values as they build skills for eating right, staying physically fit, getting good health care and developing positive relationships with peers and adults.
