Boys & Girls Clubs of America Character Building Program
The Billy the Kid Youth Center is a Member Affiliate Organization of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and offers teens the opportunity to be members of Torch Clubs. Sponsored by Staples Foundation for Learning, Inc. and Staples, Inc., Torch Clubs help young people make a successful transition into late adolescence by fostering positive self-esteem and personal growth, building listening and speaking skills and reinforcing academic achievement.
Torch Clubs also play a vital role in day-to-day running of a club, using critical peer-to-peer interaction to build positive character traits and interpersonal skills among pre-teens. Torch Club members become role models and ambassadors for promoting character, tolerance, diversity and inclusion, and each year, hundreds of Torch Club youth conduct service projects in their Clubs and communities proving they are on their way to becoming responsible, caring citizens and leaders
