Keystone Club is the Boys & Girls Club movement’s most dynamic teen program. Keystone Clubs are chartered leadership
and service clubs for boys and girls ages 14-18 designed to develop good character and help members grow to become productive,
responsible adults. Keystoners elect officers and implement their own service projects in three core areas: Character and
Leadership, Service to Club and Community, Education & Career Exploration. Keystone Clubs are designed to help teen
members become more productive citizens and leaders. Each year, Keystoners develop a National Keystone Project which is the
combined action of hundreds of local Keystone Clubs resulting in a service project with a national scope.
To help members further develop their leadership skills and understand the broader scope of service, Keystone Club members
annually have the opportunity to attend Regional and National Conferences with teens from around the globe. Teens can be
nominated to steering committees that help organize these Conferences.

We are excited to announce that Wakeman’s Keystone has experienced an upgrade. We have revamped our program in an effort to include more teens, diversify our service projects and provide teens with greater lead- ership opportunities. As a result of these changes, we are asking that all of those interested in being a part of Keystone next year attend our Open House to learn more about the program and our requirements.
Any applicant, returning or new, is asked to attend ONE Open House date. Candidates who do not attend an Open House date will not be given an application for the 2017-2018 program year.
