Hello Keystone Members
We have missed having you at the Boys & Girls Club. Since school went virtual in March 2020 so much has changed.
Keystone & Jim Helms
We were sad for Jim Helms to announce his retirement at a time we could not all come together, but be assured when we can all gather again, we will celebrate all Jim has meant to Keystone and the Boys & Girls Club.
Virtual School and Modified School Plans
We want to give you an update on where we are now that school has opened in Plan A. We have been and will continue to be open in a limited capacity to provide support for youth as they attend either virtual classes or after school. Students will remain in small cohorts and socially distanced. Because of these restrictions we have not been able to begin the Keystone program for this school year. We hope to be able to initiate the Keystone program later in 2021. We will keep you posted on social media.
About the Keystone Program
Keystone is a Boys & Girls Clubs of America national program in which high school age youth participate, both in and out of the Club, in activities in three focus areas: academic success, career preparation and community service. Located in the Boys & Girls Club of Cabarrus County, The Keystone Room is open daily with weekly meetings on Sundays and service projects throughout the year. With the guidance of Jim Helms, Keystone members aim to have a positive impact on members, the Club and community.
Members of the Keystone Program organize and implement several special events throughout the year, including an annual Blood Drive and Veterans Day Program. Members also volunteer as tutors in the Club's Afterschool Program, and at special Club events such as Pancake Day and the Festival of Trees.
