Jewish Youth Club
Our Jewish Youth Club is a long-standing Educational Alliance program that serves youth ages 6 to 18 from the local Jewish community. We provide an important place for youth to learn, exercise, and socialize, and we offer programming that includes academic support, leadership development, guest speakers and recreation.
Our group leaders offer individual tutoring and homework help, giving students a chance to complete assignments in a supportive environment. Group leaders also serve as positive adult role models and help students stay academically on-track so they will graduate on time.
Some of the most involved young people serve on a Youth Council and organize club events. Youth learn how to be good leaders and discuss relevant issues, such as effective communication with each other and with adults, ways to be diplomatic and put others first, and how to be problem solvers.
Guest speakers are professionals who live in the neighborhood. They discuss how to achieve success while continuing to balance their personal lives with professional obligations. Speakers also encourage Youth Club participants to consider a wide range of career options.
The Club also offers basketball, ballet, gymnastics, and arts and crafts classes. Fitness and art are rarely options in the schools youth attend so our classes provide a much needed source of healthy physical activity and creative self-expression.
