1 Million Youth
Young people of all ages engage in service projects in their communities, an experience they share with others across the nation. Each year, the goal is to engage 1 million or more youth, with each donating at least an hour of their time. Benefits of this program include learning about others in need, developing compassion and being around — and becoming — active, positive role models.
Keystone Clubs let youth customize their participation with Boys & Girls Club organizations. Kids age 14 through 18 can take part in community service, career preparation or academic success projects; they participate in numerous events both in and out of the Club environment as learning initiatives and to positively impact their communities. Adult advisors guide teens through these growth opportunities.
