The Continentals of Omega Boys & Club offers four basic core programs that provide a varied and diverse activity base. All programs and services are designed to meet the needs and interests of our membership while providing a means in which staff can be a positive influence.
Character & Citizenship Programs:
Empowering youth to support and influence their Club and community, sustain meaningful relationships with others, develop a positive self-image, participate in the democratic process and respect their own and others’ cultural identities.
Our Club strives to achieve academic enrichment and school engagement; targeted dropout prevention; and intensive intervention and case management. Our aim is to ensure that all Club members graduate from high school on time, ready for a post-secondary education and a 21st-century career.
As a comprehensive health and wellness program, developed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, strives to improve the overall health of Club members ages 6-18 by increasing their daily physical activity, teaching them good nutrition and helping them develop healthy relationships.
- The Mind component encourages young people to eat smart through the Healthy Habits program, which covers the power of choice, calories, vitamins and minerals, the food pyramid and appropriate portion size.
- The Body component boosts Clubs’ traditional physical activities to a higher level by providing sports and fitness activities for all youth. Body programs include six Daily Fitness Challenges; teen Sports Clubs focused on leadership development, service and careers in athletics; and Triple Play Games Tournaments, inter-Club sectional tournaments that involve multiple team sports.
- The Soul component helps build positive relationships and cooperation among young people.
Enabling youth to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through knowledge and appreciation of the visual arts, performing arts and creative writing.
