Our caring staff are trained to serve as positive role models and to create a learning scenario out of every game, to nurture self-esteem in every exchange with a child, and to boost the confidence that can be so fleeting during adolescence. The positive relationships our mentors build with children at the Club are a key element of our impact on youth.
