Keystoning is the Boys & Girls Club Movement’s ultimate teen program. This unique leadership development experience provides opportunities for young people ages 14-18. Youth participate, both in and out of the Club, in activities in three focus areas: academic success, career preparation and community service. With the guidance of an adult advisor, we aim to have a positive impact on members, the Club and the community.
Our Keystone Griffins won the National Program Award in 2015 for their work on changing New Jersey Law. They've also hosted a Career Night with Jersey City Ties, volunteered for a host of community events, tutored and mentored younger members and attended the National Keystone Conference.
In October 2015, they hosted Our Lives Matter Youth Town Hall to engage high school students throughout Jersey City in a year of civic engagement.
