Formula for Impact: Our Formula for Impact describes how Clubs and Youth Centers, individually and collectively, can increase our impact on young people. Our formula says that if we take the Young People Who Need Us Most and provide them with the best possible Outcome-Driven Club Experience, they will achieve positive outcomes in the priority areas of Academic Success, Good Character & Leadership, Healthy Lifestyles, and Career Pathways & Workforce Readiness. Program Experience: Members will participate in programs from each of the five Core Program Areas. These programs are meant to achieve specific youth outcomes related to a common discipline. They fit into and align with the Formula for Impact’s priority outcome areas of Academic Success, Good Character & Leadership, Healthy Lifestyles, Career Pathways & Workforce Readiness. The five Core Program Areas are: • Leadership and Service • Education • The Arts • Health and Wellness • Sports and Recreation Summer Program: Members in grades K-8 will participate in a variety of programs. Examples of academic enrichment and social emotional learning programs include: Summer Brain Gain, which complements and reinforces what youth learn at school, thus preventing summer learning loss; Smart Moves, which is a targeted program that focuses on building youth’s attitudes and skills that support healthy decision-making; Positive Action, which is based on the philosophy that we feel good about ourselves when we do positive actions. Additional programming will include, literacy/math programs that will maintain or increase members phonics/math proficiency. Members may also take part in Triple Play (Healthy Habits, Social Recreation), Junior Achievement, Fine Arts, STEM activities, Youth for Unity and Intramural Sports. Members grades 9-12 will participate in Summer Brain Gain, Positive Action, and Teens Take the Lead. Teens Take the Lead is a program that allows members to talk about their passions, community needs and concerns, research the root cause of the concerns, and implement a plan of action to help serve their community’s needs. Additional programming may include the following programs: Money Matters, Career Launch, and Keystone (Leadership and Service opportunities).
