Torch Clubs are chartered, small-group leadership and service clubs for boys and girls ages 11 to 13. A Torch Club is a powerful vehicle that helps Club staff meet the special character development needs of younger adolescents at a critical stage in their life.
Members learn about the democratic process by electing officers and work together on numerous activities, including service to their Club, community projects, education, health and fitness.
Torch Club is a “club within the Club,” helping to meet the special character-development needs of younger adolescents at a critical stage in their life.
A Torch Club is a powerful vehicle through which young people develop and strengthen their 21st-century leadership skills, giving them a firm foundation of good character and integrity. Torch Club members elect officers and work together to implement projects in the four focus areas: service to Club and community; education; health and fitness; and social recreation.
Old Navy proudly supports Torch Club. Their annual back-to-school donation drive raises funds for the program nationally, and they also provide valuable volunteer resources to chartered Torch Clubs across the country.
Climate SuperStars, an online environmental challenge sponsored by Samsung Electronics America, is offered annually to chartered Torch Clubs. Eligible Torch Clubs can win Samsung products ranging from Galaxy Tabs to large-screen TVs.
