Academic Success

Many Club members start with us severely deficient in core educational disciplines. We provide supportive staff, educational stability and access to vital Academic Success Programs that help youth face their educational challenges.


100% of teen members who participated in our College Bound program graduated high school compared to 84% of non-participants. 96% of Club teen members pursued post-secondary education.


Last year, the Club provided one-on-one academic case management to 758 youth who began the year with D or F grades in English and/or math. 80% of case-managed members demonstrated an improvement of at least one grade level over the school year.


50% of Club senior girls are three times more likely to express an interest in a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) career compared with 16% of senior girls nationally.
