Sponsored Youth Programs

 

Our Sponsored Youth:

 

We currently sponsor three youth groups The Whitehouse High School Key club the Whitehouse Boy Scouts, and we just started sponsorship of a new organization called Venturing, Which is a new level of the Boy Scouts of America for teenagers. All of these organizations help to mold the future of our country into model and outstanding citizens.  We are proud of these young adults and look forward to seeing them make a great impact on our community and our country. 

The Key Club is a co-educational service organization for high school students, organized and sponsored by a Kiwanis club.  It is a self-governing organization and elects its own officers, determines its own service activities, and establishes its own dues structure. Its Objects include the Objects of Kiwanis.  Once organized, a Key Club is continuously sponsored by a Kiwanis club.

 

The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America, incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916, is to provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness

 

Venturing is for young men and young women ages 14 to 20. It includes challenging high-adventure activities, sports, and hobbies for teenagers that teach them leadership skills, provide opportunities to teach others, and give them an opportunity to learn and grow in a supporting, caring, and fun environment.
