Our Impact

2020 was our 50th anniversary as a leader in positive youth development. We had grand plans to celebrate this milestone throughout the year, but as 2020 unfolded, it became clear that this anniversary was going to be a landmark year for impact. While our 50th anniversary turned out to look much different than what we had anticipated, we are so proud of what we accomplished and provided to our Club families when they needed us the most.
