Our programs develop healthy children who are successful in school, make positive life choices, and live in supportive families. Each program addresses a local need of children and their families.

Power Hour – Homework assistance every day
Money Matters – Teaching financial literacy to teens
DIY STEM– Engage in fun activities through Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

Character & Leadership
These programs help youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills to participate the democratic process. Program participants also develop leadership skills and gain opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.
These programs are designed to foster creativity in young people, and give them outlets for self-expression. From photography to sewing, our arts programs have something that will inspire everyone.
Badges for Baseball
In hundreds of communities across America, vulnerable youth and law enforcement are joining forces to play and learn—building positive connections in the process. They’re part of our signature Badges for Baseball program, created in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Justice. The life-skills training program pairs at-risk youth with law enforcement mentors from local communities who use team sports to teach valuable life lessons. Devised to deter juvenile delinquency, Badges targets America’s most vulnerable youth, including those in low-income families and single-parent homes, children of parents on active military duty, and youth with disabilities. Equally important, Badges helps repair contentious relationships between inner-city youth and law enforcement.
