We are for all boys and girls.  Young people from all races, religions and cultures are welcome. We are building centered.  Activities are carried on in or initiated from the warm, friendly atmosphere of a building especially designed to conduct youth programs. We have an open door policy.  Clubs are open to all members at any time during its hours of operation.

We offer a varied and diversified program that responds to the collective and individual needs of boys and girls.
