Teen Centers in Action

Our Teen Centers are open every weekday with extended hours during most school breaks and throughout the summer. We launched Teen Pathways in 2014 as a strategy to prepare middle school students for a successful transition to high school, and help high school students graduate with a plan for their future. We’ll celebrate these amazing teens with our Youth of the Year dinner on Wednesday, November 7!

The Club provided three things for me; a belief that I could achieve my goals, a place where I belonged no matter what, and a link to other opportunities. I am where I am today because of that.”  Juan Uranga, Club Alum, Former Executive Director – Center for Community Advocacy- Salinas. 

Volunteers Make a World of Difference

There are so many ways to make a difference at the Clubs, including volunteering your time or participating in corporate and group volunteering opportunities. Volunteers help in a variety of ways, including sports, homework help and tutoring, special projects and more. Pictured are volunteers from the Charles Schwab Foundation during a recent visit where they helped youth understand how real world circumstances and decisions can impact their financial future.

“It did a lot to prepare me. It showed how you need a good college education.” –  Zuleyka, 11
