Our programs help youth create aspirations for the future, provide opportunities for career exploration and educational enhancement.
We offer a variety of programs and activities based on the interest and needs of our youth in the following areas:
We host daily Power Hour with tutoring and homework help. Club staff and teachers review Members grades and work with students to improve their academic performance. Teens meet to discuss college requirements, necessary testing, and scholarship opportunities.
EYC believes it's important to teach youth to become responsible, caring citizens and acquire skills for participating in the democratic process. Youth develop leadership skills by planning, making decisions, and contributing to the Club and community.
The Business Club offers a work-readiness curriculum. Youth explore and learn financial literacy, workforce development, ethics, and about post-secondary education. The program worked to develop a real business and now runs a food truck, and most recently is catering events including Christmas parties and sports banquets.
Lifestyle programs focus on teaching positive behaviors that nurture youth well-being. Members learn valuable like skills and set personal goals for future success. We host cooking, nutrition and sewing classes.

Physical fitness is a positive use of leisure time, develop skills for stress management, appreciation for the environment and social skills.
