Junior Staff is a small-group program that is both practical and user friendly.
It assists Club members ages 13 to 18 in exploring a career in youth or human services, particularly Boys & Girls Club work. Young people prepare for future roles as human services professionals by participating in career development activities, discovering the importance of community service, building customer service skills and completing a Club apprenticeship. Clubs that implement this program make an investment in the development of Club members’ interpersonal skills, work ethic and sense of community responsibility.
Our members participate in our Junior Staff program both at our Resale Shop and at our program sites at Decker Gym and at our STARS Clubhouse.
As a result of taking part in the Junior Staff program members will:
Develop & strengthen leadership skills
Understand and value volunteerism
Become positive role models respected by peers, family, school personnel, community, & club staff
Become introduced to a possible career in Boys & Girls Club work & other human services professions
Assist staff in "making a difference" in the lives of youth
Create a sense of belonging, usefulness, influence and competence
Create and Achieve Goals
Learn important decision making skills to prepare & plan their future
Real Life Experience
Some of the Junior Staff Program Club members have so far in 2015 participated in many events.
Some of those events include:
Sorting clothing items for Club Members for our special annual Blue Door Back to School night. The event invites Club members from both sites to come the week before school starts and get that special outfit....a whole new wardrobe....or something in between! Our Junior Staffers spend weeks prepping for the event ensuring the members get a great selection of items to go Back to School in style!
