Character and Leadership Development

Encourage members to become responsible, caring citizens.

  • Youth of the Year: Awards program highlighting overall excellence in academics, athletics, the arts, and character. Youth of the Year is held on the club, regional, state, and national levels with the potential for scholarship opportunities.

  • Keystone Club: this is our main teen program, providing leadership and character development opportunities. Youth participate in activities in three focus areas: academic success, career preparation and community service. With the guidance of an adult advisor, Keystone Clubs aim to have a positive impact on members, the Club and the broader community.

  • Torch Club: similar in structure to Keystone but for pre-teens, preparing them for high school and serving as an important mutual support group.

  • Teen Late Night: Every Friday, clubs host positive and drug-free activities for teens including movie nights, game nights, field trips to local athletic events, and more.
