Our S.T.E.A.M infused Life-Skills Project Based Learning programming is built upon these foundational components.
Youth will learn the value of working for, saving and investing a dollar through our EARN WHILE YOU LEARN (EWYL) and WALL STREET WARRIORS programs.
Our programming model provides youth a variety of opportunities to hone and sharpen their finance skills.
Youth take regular trips to the bank to deposit money they have earned in the EWYL program into their very own custodial savings account. earnings and sharpen their finance skills.
Through our WALL STREET WARRIORS program youth also learn how to invest a portion of their earnings into their very own custodial investment stock portfolio!! Many of youth have successfully invested in shares of companies like McDonald's, NIKE, APPLE, GOOGLE, etc.

Teaching youth to use their skills and talent to produce products and services that will allow them to start their own business is something we expose youth to in a variety of ways. We start by helping them identify skills and talent they have to sell to others, followed by a series of entrepreneurship 101 workshops culminating in a solid business plan.
In our Art and Animation class, we encourage our young artists to sell their art online or create designs they can have printed or embroidered on a t-shirt or hat at our very own print/embroidery shop. The finished product can then be sold at our very own ClubXApparel.com website.
In our Music Production class, we encourage our talented singers and songwriters to produce quality music they can sell online through CDBaby, Spotify,Apple Music etc. Our youth have produced over 30 plus singles that can be found online at Spotify/Apple Music/Amazon, etc. 4 of our 5 NY EMMY nominations have come from music our students have created!
In our 3D modeling class, we encourage our aspiring architects and engineers to create 3D objects they can sell in our 3D store.
Best of all, students get to keep 100% of the profits!
