CHARACTER & LEADERSHIP
Helping youth become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills for participating in the democratic process is the main thrust of these programs. They also develop leadership skills and provide opportunities for planning, decision-making, contributing to Club and community and celebrating our national heritage.
Youth of the Year
Club members who earn the youth of the Year title embody the values of leadership service; academic excellence; and healthy lifestyles. Open to Club members who are juniors and seniors in High School.
Congratulations are in order for Braden Taylor , our 2017 Youth of the Year! Braden started coming to the Club when he was in sixth grade and a very shy child. Braden now works for the Club and states, “I am privileged to say that I am friends with the mentors that I grew up with. Every lesson that I learned at the club as a child I can now take and learn from."
This unique leadership development experience provides opportunities for club teens. Youth participate, both in and out of the Club, 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 community.
Club members are paired with peer or adult mentors to positively affect their lives.
