The Torch Club
The Torch Club is a nationally chartered Boys and Girls small group leadership and service club for youth ages 9-12. The Torch Club is a powerful vehicle through which club members can help meet the special character development needs of younger adolescents at a critical stage in their development. Torch Club members learn to elect officers and work together to implement activities in four areas: service to club and community, education, health and fitness and social recreation. Through the guidance of caring adults who mentor and empower them, torch members develop the essential character traits of responsibility, respect for self and others, trustworthiness, fairness and caring. They also learn leadership skills that help them influence others in a positive way.

How has the Boys & Girls Club impacted his/her life?
The Boys & Girls Club alleviated my social anxiety. When I became a BGCA member, I began to befriend many different people and embark on many adventures to give back to the community. I was also exposed to more public speaking activities, and I gained the ability to speak in front of hundreds of people without stuttering and without anxiety. I also garnered a more adventurous and outgoing attitude. Without the Boys & Girls Club, I would not be who I am today.
Other outstanding achievements: Honor roll all four years of High School, Leadership Awards, Citizenship Awards, Teen of the Month, Teen of the Quarter 2015-2017 ,Bronze ,Silver, and Gold Presidential Service Award, Congressional Award, membership in the National Society of High School Scholars, and Volunteer service awards, Keystone Club Servant Leadership Award.
