Our Approach


Our Approach
Metro Detroit Youth Clubs serve over 2,200 Club members age 6-18 through five locations in Detroit, Ferndale, Royal Oak, Southfield and Washington Township.

Metro Detroit Youth Clubs empower youth to reach their full potential through safe, accessible, and inclusive experiences that open doors to a bright future, enabling every Club member to graduate from high school with a plan for college or career, contribute to their community and live a healthy life. Building on 60 years of serving Metro Detroit youth, we are guided by our mission- focused, evidence-based programs focusing on: literacy, mental health services, mentoring, workforce development, and play opportunities in health and fitness.

Our family of Clubs are open after school during the school year and during the day during the summer months, our Clubs provide the perfect destination for youth. The Clubs are led by a team of full-time and part-time professionals and supported by a 24-member Board of Trustees comprised of business and community leaders. More than 200 volunteers support the Club each year.
