Whole Child Program Model
Providing for the inter-relationship of children and youth’s education, social, emotional, physical and moral development.
Many kids in the urban core can’t afford to play team sports, experience the arts or use even use a computer. By joining the Clubs, Kansas City youth who need us most gain valuable experiences that help them succeed in school and in life.
Our comprehensive programs fall into four core areas:
- Education & Career Development including the Arts – Provides for knowledge of basic educational disciplines, enrich the information taught in schools, apply learning to everyday living and encourage graduation.
- Public Speaking, Character & Leadership Development – Teaches the basics of public speaking and debate. Empowers youth to influence their Club and community, develop a positive self image and good character, participate in the democratic process and respect their own and others’ cultural identities.
- Healthy Lifestyles – Club members develop the capacity to engage in positive behaviors to nurture their own well-being, set personal goals and live successfully as a self-sufficient adult.
- Technology – Provides a range of different contexts for learning drawing on important aspects of everyday life an work.
