The Torch Club is a small group club developed by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America to meet the needs of young adolescents and keep them on track. The club members work under the guidance of an adult advisor. They provide opportunities for Club members to identify community needs, and then develop programs and activities to meet those needs.
These activities also expose members to the democratic process, and above all, they give young people a chance to contribute something of value to others.
Torch Club members also engage in educational activities focusing on personal development and develop skills in getting along with others, problem solving, communication, goal setting, and decision making.
