What is the torch club?
The Torch Club teaches young adults how to build good character and leadership skills. As part of the Torch Club, members will learn to make good decisions and how to help others. There are four parts to help others:
- Service to club and community In this area, members can make and send birthday and greeting cards to others in the center, children’s hospital, or senior homes and help with special events at the center.
- Education Members become self-aware, learn to get along with others, set personal goals and learn to solve problems. They can also visit museums and historical points of interest, listen to guest speakers and careers, write poems, set school related goals, and help others with homework
- Health and Fitness Learn about good nutrition and well being along with a physical and healthy lifestyle. Members can plan and conduct a fitness club for others, organize health fairs for the club, learn about healthy cooking, invite college athletes to speak about discipline, and plan exercise demonstrations.
- Social Recreation Learn to interact and get along with others. Members can host a character appreciation party, attend cultural events, host special parties (birthdays, end of school, etc.), and host game tournaments and talent shows or skits.
