What is Kids Club

A youth development program that has been implemented in schools and organizations across the country.

What is Kids Club Details

The Kids Club program is for children ages 8-12 years who struggle with social and behavioral issues. It incorporates lesson plans from Character Counts!®, a youth development program that has been
implemented in schools and organizations across the country. Children learn to practice social skills,
teamwork and relationship skills in a group setting. The nine-week summer program is based on six
ethical values called the Six Pillars: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.

The Approach

A program that focuses on the Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect,
Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.

The Approach Details

 Children learn appropriate social skills and interactions. CG&FS behavior specialists teach them how to control their impulsive behavior and how to sustain attention throughout the duration of an activity. Each week, the program focuses on one of the Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.

The trustworthiness segment teaches children to be honest and builds loyalty towards family and friends. They are encouraged to treat others with respect; to use good manners, be considerate of others' feeling and deal peacefully with disagreements. They are taught responsibility: to use self-control and self­
discipline and be accountable for their words and actions. Fairness focuses on playing by the rules,
taking turns and sharing, and treating all people fairly. The caring lessons teach them to be kind,
compassionate and help others in need. Through the citizenship sessions, they learn to obey laws and
rules and discover how they can do their part to make their school and community better.

What to Expect

Children learn how to control their emotions and how to do their best at school.

What to Expect Details

Learning about a framework of values has been shown to improve overall attendance and academic
performance while reducing negative incidents such as classroom aggression and non-compliance.
