Keystone on the Move

Our Keystone Club is the Boys & Girls Club Movement's ultimate teen program. This unique leadership development experience provides opportunities for young people ages 14 to 18. Youth participate, both in and out of the Club, in activities in three focus areas: academic success, career preparation and community service.

For their outstanding volunteer contributions and academic success in the classroom for 2016, they are headed to Chicago for the 2017 National Keystone Conference, which will be held at the Hilton Chicago on March 2, 2017-March 4, 2017.
