Homework Help Power Hour
Each afternoon after school the Club focuses on this homework help and tutoring program, providing members with space, time and assistance to complete their assignments. Power Hour helps members be more successful in school and encourages them to become self-directed learners. A child’s participation is tracked for recognition through our incentive program.

Healthy Habits
A big part of helping our members to reach their full potential is teaching them the keys to a healthy life. Hands on lessons are taught about the importance of good nutrition, physical fitness, personal hygiene and sleep.

Reading Club
Members go to the Locust Valley Library where they are paired with tutors to help raise their reading level. This program is designed to help improve English reading, writing and vocabulary skills.

Junior Leaders
Join our Junior Leaders to develop skills in cooperation, teamwork and initiative and to become a Club leader of tomorrow. Service activities such as helping at special events and volunteering at community activities prepare our Junior Leaders to be the future members of our Torch and Keystone Clubs.

Science Club
Science is all around us! At the Club, kids enjoy learning about natural wonders and scientific mysteries, expanding their understanding and sparking their intellectual curiosity. Members take field trips and participate in fun experiments that encourage them to see the world in a different way.

Kids In The Kitchen
Every week this Club will provide opportunities for children to learn how to bake healthy and sweet snacks. Our members will learn about healthy nutrition and math in a fun manner while improving social support for them.
