Education & Career Programs

CAREER WORKS

Career Works programming began in March of 2022. The program engages youth ages 12-18 in:

  • essential skill development
  • career exploration
  • work-based learning
  • skills certification activities

The program leverages local workforce and educational partnerships to bring resources and high-yield learning to participants and share expertise and practices with youth development agencies through community networks.

The intent of Career Works is to properly and adequately prepare youth to graduate from high school with a plan: whether it be a career path, college, technical or trade school, or the military. As future leaders of our communities, equipping children with modern and innovative programs and technology will better prepare them for the workspace.

POWER HOUR

Making Minutes Count

The Power Hour materials provide practical tips and best practices for recognition and incentives, behavior management, volunteer recruitment and training, collaboration with other organizations and use of technology and the Internet.

SUMMER BRAIN GAIN

Summer Brain Gain is a fun, educational program that aims to prevent summer learning loss and keep kids on track for the coming school year.

Supported by Disney and Old Navy, the program is comprised of 17 one-week modules with themed activities for elementary school, middle school and high school students. Each module takes a project-based learning approach; youth engage in a process of learning through discovery, creative expression, group work and a final project or production.

CAREERLAUNCH

Preparing teens for our nation’s workforce.

CareerLaunch encourages Club members ages 13 to 18 to assess their skills and interests, explore careers, make sound educational decisions and prepare to join our nation’s work force. Club staff or volunteers help teens build their job-search skills and job readiness by using the CareerLaunch Facilitator Guide and working with teens individually or in small groups. The CareerLaunch page provides Club teens, staff and volunteers with online career exploration, college and job search information and interactive activities. Mentoring, job shadowing and training opportunities round out the program.

BE SOMEBODY: COWBOY ETHICS

The Be Somebody: Cowboy Ethics program is based on Jim Owen’s books Cowboy Ethics and Cowboy Values. Each month of our elementary program focuses on a different value as outlined in the book. Our secondary school program is based on The Code of the West. These programs use an experiential learning concept to teach youth how we can all live best in a community by showing honor and respect, and living authentically.
