We are a private non-profit 501(c)3 agency and receive funds from sponsoring businesses, individuals, grants, service clubs, foundations, special events, and caregivers/parents/guardians. Our programs are not funded from state or federal dollars. Although we receive support from our community, our Club relies on the income from program fees in order to sustain operations and provide quality programs.

We know that schools starting the year with Distance (Virtual) Learning poses a challenge for working families. In collaboration with the Distance Learning plans that the Siuslaw School District is implementing, we have created the P.A.C.E. Program (Prepare Kids for Academic Success Through Collaboration, and Enrichment). P.A.C.E. is an all-day program that will allow our staff to help your children with their Distance Learning activities in the morning while engaging in traditional Club activities in the afternoon.

All fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.  Payment for Membership, Sports, After School and Summer Programs, or any other event, must be paid IN ADVANCE.

TEEN CENTER PROGRAMS

   

SMART Girls helps girls develop toward healthy attitudes.

SMART Girls is a small-group health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program designed to meet the developmental needs of girls in three age groups, spanning ages 8 to 18. Through dynamic sessions, participatory activities, field trips and mentoring opportunities with adult women, Club girls explore their own and societal attitudes and values as they build skills for eating right, staying physically fit, getting good health care and developing positive relationships with peers and adults.

 

 

Passport to Manhood encourages boys age 8 to 14 to develop and mature into young men.

Passport to Manhood represents a targeted effort to engage young boys in discussions and activities that reinforce character, leadership and positive behavior. Each participant receives a “passport” to underscore the notion that he is on a personal journey of maturation and growth. Each of the program’s 14 sessions use interactive activities to focus on a specific aspect of character and manhood. It also includes a service project where boys learn the importance of giving back to the community.
