The Club’s CU Change program is designed with YOU in mind. If you are a teenager in middle or high school, we want you to be a part of it.
The program’s focus is to provide services and support to youth throughout the school day, after-school/evening hours and the summer. In order to promote school attendance, academic progress, improved behavior, coping skills, grade promotion and on-time graduation from high school with a plan for the future are all key components for success.
Evening programming at the Club provides good character, academic and other programs to promote healthy habits and relationships.
Throughout the summer, CU Change youth will be engaged in activities that allows the program to continue to build upon the foundation created throughout the academic school year and increases program retention.
