BGC Lynchburg Virginia youth education opportunities americorps Project Learn

(All members ages 6-18)

High-yield learning activities (HYLAs) help young people see the practical application of lessons taught in the classroom. HYLAs also help them to plan self-directed learning enrichment.

Members are encouraged to make positive and productive choices regarding how they spend their leisure time at the Club. Whether through library books and leisure reading, spending time with a mentor, career exploration, participating in "teen summit” discussions on current events and local issues, or participating in various community service projects, Club members have a wide variety of opportunities to expand their skills and knowledge.

The result of these HYLAs is that the Club becomes a learning center.
