youth will be served this year
15:1 member-to-mentor ratio

Our four traditional Club locations in the cities of Costa Mesa, Irvine, Newport Beach, and Santa Ana provide a holistic response to youth development. We serve youth ages 6-18 (kindergarten through high school) grouped together by age and deliver the Impact Model—our structured, daily rotation consisting of academic reinforcement, physical fitness and social recreation, and enrichment opportunities—from the time school gets out to 6:00pm Monday through Friday.

Our Impact Model is customized to deliver age-appropriate curriculum that motivates members to develop 21st century skills, graduate on time, plan for their futures and the careers that are waiting for them, and prepare for success.

During the school day, our Clubs also serve as neighborhood centers that are becoming the hub for nonprofit and city partnerships. During school breaks and in summer, our Clubs are open for Camp Days to serve our members from 7:30am to 6:00pm.

The Club is where I go to get away from it all. Things can go wrong at school or at home, but the Club is always there to be a good place for me.
