To support a new Union, NJ Clubhouse Director of Teen Services who will expand their educational, career development, and leadership programs and services targeted to the Union, NJ Club’s teen center population. The area teens need a safe and welcoming place to learn life skills and explore future career options as they face many risks and temptations that can have serious consequences as they near adulthood. The effort will be focused upon increasing the average daily attendance from 75 to 125 teens by increasing the quality of youth experiences at the Club that meet the needs of the teens. They will utilize the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s extensive menu of programing for teens including the Keystone Club, Youth of the Year, Career Launch and STEM programs, as well as offer college tours and provide career exploration through internships and job shadowing opportunities. The Boys and Girls Club of Union County is the largest facility-based, professionally staffed youth development organization in the County, annually serving over 4,000 boys and girls aged 5 to 18 who come from disadvantaged economic, social and family environments.
