We are back to work. 100%.
At 7 a.m. this morning we welcomed our first kids into the Martin V. Smith Clubhouse. From the beach in Port Hueneme to Rio Mesa, we will be on campuses and in our clubhouses helping kids navigate virtual classrooms.
Our Youth Empowerment Program is connecting teens to careers and helping them take the necessary steps to realize their goals. Brent's Club is working to help our teens deal with this emotional time in healthy ways and stay away from drugs. With the help of The Gene Haas Foundation we are providing to-go lunches every day.
Online, the Keystone Club is touring colleges and helping kids ignite their passions. There are weekly virtual choir practices and art classes over zoom.
It takes an army of dedicated youth professionals to get this done, and I couldn't be more proud of our team. I am also thrilled that our team is expanding. To meet the moment, we be hiring more full time and part time staff. If you, or someone you know, is interested, I would love to hear from you.
I also wanted to let you know we have something special planned for the evening of November 19, 2020, so save the date and watch your inbox for more details soon!
PS: I don't know if you saw, but KEYT highlighted our innovative partnership with the Oxnard Union High School District. Check it out!
