Character and Leadership Development Programs empower young people to support and influence their Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships with others, develop a positive self-image, participate in the democratic process and respect their own and others’ cultural identities.
TEENSupreme Keystone Club
The Keystone Club for young people (ages 14-18)
is a small group that meets weekly and conducts at least one activity per year in each of six core areas: service to Club and community, leadership development, education and career exploration, unity, free enterprise and social recreation. Members receive training and opportunities for helping others with decision-making, schoolwork and personal issues. Members also participate in quarterly community beautification projects such as neighborhood and park clean-ups and landscaping.
Torch Club (Ages 11-13)
This chartered small-group leadership development program for youngsters focuses on club and community service, education, athletics and fun.
Youth of the Year
Service to Club and community, academic performance and contributions to family and spiritual life are promoted and recognized in this year-round program. Participation culminates in the Youth of the Year local competition. Local winners compete at the state level and may advance to the national finals.
BASIK to Power
Boys and girls representing all ages and backgrounds of the community participate in Club and/or community service projects. Special events, conducted at least quarterly, promote American heritage, the democratic process— including voter registration drives—and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. These experiences promote members’ appreciation of the diversity within their community.
Leadership training opportunities are created for girls and boys of all ages in every program area through active involvement in Club groups, committees and task forces.
