After School Programs to Develop the Full Potential of Students

Our students not only have a strong academic experience, but also have opportunities to participate in our curricular enhancement programs. These programs include fine arts, performing arts, and athletics. We believe that these experiences are critical to the development of the full potential of our students.

Athletic Program

The mission of our athletic program is to offer student-athletes, through participation in competitive athletics, an opportunity to experience meaningful growth, accomplishment, and success.

  • Maintaining at least a C+ in all classes, attend school daily, and exhibit positive behavior
  • Respecting the rules of the games, the officials who administer the rules, and their decisions
  • Respecting our opponents as fellow student-athletes
  • Refraining from engaging in all types of disrespectful behavior
  • Looking at athletic participation as a potentially beneficial learning experience, whether you win or lose
  • Educating other students and fans to understand the rules of the game, and the value of sportsmanship

Union League Boys and Girls Club

The Union League Boys & Girls Clubs offers a wide variety of programs at our sites. These programs fall into three core program areas: 

1. Academic Success 

2. Good Character and Citizenship and 

3. Healthy Lifestyles.

Programs are further

organized by age group within each area (ages six to seven, eight to ten,

eleven and twelve, thirteen and fourteen, and fifteen to eighteen).

The Union

League Boys & Girls Clubs offer

daily after-school homework help and tutoring to all Club members. The program,

let by both staff and volunteers, helps youth succeed in the classroom and

encourages them to become independent learners. Power Hour, a homework

initiative funded by Ross Stores, ensures that each youth who visits a Club

spends a portion of his or her Club day completing homework.

Academic Enrichment:

Access to Technology


our Boys & Girls Clubs are equipped with a dedicated computer lab Our Clubs

are resources to aid youth in completing school projects even though they don’t

have access to technology at home. Our computer labs also provide Club members

with access to STEM programming, robotics, Google coding programming and the

UPS Road Code driving simulation program

Community Service

We pride ourselves on

encouraging Club members to serve their communities. In 2015, more than 500 of

our members were engaged in a community-based service project.

is the cornerstone of healthy lives. For many of the Union League Boys &

Girls Club members, food they enjoy at our Club sites is their only source of

meaningful nutrition outside of school.
