Here at the Club, we want our teen and tween members to have a fun, safe and enjoyable place to come after school, on the weekend and over school vacations. By providing them with a positive place they can call their own, a place that allows them to hang out with friends and encourages them to engage in productive activities, we encourage them to make positive choices. And by making positive choices, teens are on their way to becoming independent young adults.
Our facility provides both a teen and a tween room dedicated to fostering the growth of each age group, preparing our young people to reach their full potential, to prepare themselves for college and the working world, and to become the community leaders of tomorrow.
If you have any question about our Teen programs, please contact Stephanie Urio, Director of Program Outcomes,

SMART Girls – Mondays, Grades 6-8 (5:00-6:00 pm)
This program provides a forum for middle school girls to discuss the many issues they face today and the challenges they will face in the future. This program encourages healthy choices, self-respect and practical skills. Tweens participate in hands-on projects and field trips to local businesses and athletic events.
Healthy Habits – Mondays, Grades 6-12 (6-7:30 pm)
A big part of helping young people to reach their full potential is teaching them the keys to a healthy life. An understanding of how to make smart nutritional choices, how to achieve an active lifestyle, and how to develop a strong sense of self confidence is essential. Members are encouraged to sit down to a “healthy plate” at every meal by increasing their consumption of fruits, vegetables and whole grains, while limiting their intake of foods high in calories, fat, salt and sugar. Members learn to limit takeout and fast food and to cook simple healthy meals for themselves and their families.
Keystone Club – Wednesdays, Grades 9-12 (7-8 pm)
The Keystone Club is a nationally chartered leadership and service club for teens who perform numerous service projects throughout the year. Club members help younger members with homework, organize food and coat drives, and raise money through bake sales and car washes for various causes such as animal shelters, children’s hospitals and volunteer fire departments. Teens elect officers, choose their own projects and attend the Regional Conference.
