Boys & Girls Club of Flagstaff

Character and 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.

Torch Club

Torch Club is a chartered, small-group leadership and service club for boys and girls ages 11 to 13. A
Torch Club is a powerful vehicle that helps Club staff meet the special character development needs of younger
adolescents at a critical stage in their life. Our youth participate in many volunteer projects as well as fundraising
opportunities to help them go to local conferences.

Keystone Club

Age 14-18 Keystoning is the Boys & Girls Club Movement’s ultimate teen program for youth ages 14
to 18. This unique program provides leadership development opportunities for youth to participate in activities, both in
and out of the Club, in three focus areas: academic success, career preparation and community service. With the
guidance of an adult advisor, Keystone Clubs aim to positively impact teens, their Club and local communities.

Youth Of The Year

Youth of the Year is Boys & Girls Club of Flagstaff’s premier recognition program. It is our signature effort to foster a
new generation of leaders, fully prepared to live and lead in a diverse, global and integrated world economy.
