The Teen Club of Sierra County

AppleTree is proud to partner with The Club of Sierra County as its primary fiscal sponsor. The Club is a non-profit organization opened in 2008, serving 250 unduplicated youth 6th grade through 12th grade in the community. Years of research confirm that youth who participate in after school programs can reap a host of positive academic, social, prevention, and health benefits, such as: improved academic achievement, improved social and developmental outcomes, increased percentage of healthy lifestyles, and increased knowledge of nutrition and exercise. The research further shows that out-of-school time activities for youth have posi tive impacts on a range of prevention outcomes includ ing avoidance of drug and alcohol use, decreases in delinquency and violent behavior, increased knowledge of safe sex, avoidance of sexual activity, and reduction in juvenile crime. 


The Club offers tutoring and homework help, academic enrichment, the arts, music, computer technology, as well as character development and leadership programs, college and career readiness, and recreational activities for youth members between the ages of 12 and 18, or 6th through 12th grade. Youth not in school and adult learners can access the computer lab and tutoring room during non-club hours. Service learning, on-the-job training, and internships are available.
