Keystone Club:

Boys and Girls Clubs of America teen character and leadership program. “Keystoning” is the Boys & Girls Club Movement’s ultimate teen program at every Youth Center. This unique leadership development experience provides opportunities for young people ages 14 to 18. Youth participate, both in and out of the Club, in activities that have three focus areas: academic success, career preparation and community service. With the guidance of an adult advisor, Keystone Clubs aim to have a positive impact on members, the Club and community.

Annually, BGCA hosts the National Keystone Conference, a character and leadership development conference for Boys & Girls Club teens that brings together members from all across the globe. Throughout the conference, Keystone members engage and socialize with peers, explore relevant issues, and develop skills to support and enhance efforts in their local Boys & Girls Clubs and communities.

For more information, please click here or ask any YP staff member.

Torch Club:

Torch Clubs are chartered, small-group leadership and service clubs for youth ages 10 to 12. A Torch Club is a powerful vehicle through which Club staff can help meet the special character development needs of younger adolescents at a critical stage in their life. Torch Club members learn to elect officers and work together to implement activities in four areas: service to Club and community; education; health and fitness; and social recreation. All youth members are welcome to join.

For more information ask any YP staff member.

Youth Employment Skills (YES) Program:

The Youth Employment Skills (YES) Program is an on-base youth volunteer program funded by the Air Force Aid Society (AFAS) and jointly administered by AFAS and Airman & Family Services Flight. This program, being offered at select Air Force bases, offers high school-aged dependents of Active Duty / Title 10 Air Force members an opportunity to learn valuable work skills while having a positive impact on their base communities. Program participation incentives are in the form of dollar credits for grant funding. The YES Program allows all certified and enrolled high school students to “bank” volunteer dollar credits toward their post-secondary education/training at a rate of $4 per hour volunteered in an on-base position. Students may accumulate as many as 250 hours, for a potential $1000 maximum, over all four years of high school combined. In addition, the participating base youth program will “bank” base community credits at a rate of $2 for every hour volunteered per student, up to a maximum of $10,000 per program year. For purposes of this program, “program year” is defined as the 12-month period beginning 1 June through 31 May of each year. Youth Director, as part of Airman & Family Services Flight, manages the YES Program at base level. When you graduate the money will be waiting for you to help with your college tuition!

For more information ask any YP staff member.

The Congressional Award:

The Congressional Award is the United States Congress’ award for young Americans. It is non-partisan, voluntary, and non-competitive. The program is open to all 14 to 23-year-olds; young people may register when they turn 13 1/2 years old and must complete their activities before their 24th birthday. Participants earn Bronze, Silver and Gold Congressional Award Certificates and Bronze, Silver and Gold Congressional Award Medals. Each level involves setting goals in four program areas; Volunteer Public Service, Personal Development, Physical Fitness, and Expedition/Exploration. Earning the Award is a fun and interesting way to get more involved in something you already enjoy or something you’d like to try for the first time. You move at your own pace – on your own or with your friends. This is not an award for past accomplishments. Instead, you are honored for achieving your own challenging goals after registering for the program. Regardless of your situation, you can earn the Congressional Award. The Congressional Award has no minimum grade point average requirements. It accommodates young people with special needs or disabilities who are willing to take the challenge.

For more information, please click here or ask any YP staff member.

Teen Council:

At JB MDL, the Teen Council identifies local teen concerns, brainstorm solutions, and initiates change with the assistance of their Teen Staff Advisor. This organization is a teen group which empowers youth to support and influence YP, installation, school, and the JB MDL military community. Through the Teen Council, teens have the opportunity to pursue leadership roles on the Regional and Air Force level Teen Council. All youth ages 13-18 are welcome to join.

For more information ask any YP staff member.

Youth of the Year:

Each year, installations select one teen as the BGCA Youth of the Year to represent their youth center. Selected youth have the opportunity to compete at the installation, state, regional, and national level. Selected youth earn scholarships while representing their installation, family, and their military branch of service. Annually, installation winners are recognized at a ceremony provided by the Air Force Services Activity Child and Youth Programs. All High School students are welcome to compete.

For more information ask any YP staff member.
