Each month, the Club host a Youth Late Night. It is a special night for our members to celebrate their kind, caring, and respectful behaviors and have one themed night where they can be at the Club until 7:30pm. During our last youth late night, our theme was mystery night. Club members tested their thinking skills and teamwork on a scavenger hunt. At the end of the night, members got to choose to participate in a talent show where they can showcase their special skills. One of our members, Emma, decided that she wanted to sing a song for all the Club kids. She had never sung in front of other people besides her parents. She was super nervous but when the time came, she sang her heart out. All of the kids were super supportive and complimented her at the end of the night.
The story about Emma may be small but to Emma, it meant a lot. She left the time beaming with pride and confidence. She felt safe and confident enough to sign up to sing in front of people at the Club! Moments like these are very meaningful to our Club members and staff.
