Check out this dynamic group of young women! Fifth graders, Tori and Jalyn, initiated an inaugural Bake Sale to help raise funds for their Del Mar Clubhouse. Kindergarteners, Zoya and Eliana, reeled in customers with their big smiles, welcoming greetings, and colorful posters. The girls had a goal of raising $100. They surpassed it & brought in a total of $150 for the Club!
Positivi-TREE Boosts Self-Esteem
Last month's We C.A.R.E. anti-bullying activity at our Del Mar Clubhouse was creating a positivi-TREE. Members wrote positive messages about what they love about themselves to boost self-esteem and self-worth. Messages included; I am very nice, I like how I'm smart, I am unique, and I am very funny.

We're proud to announce a new partnership with San Diego LabRats with the opening of our new STEAM Discovery Center at our Griset Clubhouse in Encinitas.  Our 5th-8th grade members have a  place where they can explore their personal creativity, tinker with their own ideas, get help on math and science homework, and participate in exciting hands on classes and camps, taught by real scientists, so they can achieve their best.
