What Is Steve's Club?
Steve’s Club National Program is a member-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with Local Steve’s Club chapters in cities across the country. Our Local Clubs partner with fitness facilities nationwide to bring fitness, nutrition and mentorship to at-risk and underserved youth.
"Steve’s Club and its participating members provide a national network of programs through which at-risk or underserved youth of any socioeconomic background can join in the fitness community at a reduced, low or no cost structure."
Imagine a country where youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, tough neighborhoods and difficult family lives can experience fitness and improve their lives. After school they choose to go to their Local Steve’s Club where they can interact with positive members of the community and better themselves, instead of being exposed to drugs, gangs, and violence.
We can make a difference in the lives of individual kids at the local level and begin to create change on a larger scale. The future of America rests with our youth.
Help us strengthen the nation, one kid at a time.
Changing Lives Through Community
We believe fitness can help kids grow into stronger and healthier individuals – both physically and mentally. With positive role models providing consistent coaching and mentoring, our kids learn life lessons in a supportive environment. They discover what they're capable of and push themselves to work hard and set goals. It starts with a workout, but through friendship and teamwork Steve’s Club becomes a second home.
Steve’s Club athletes spread the word and embody positive values. These teens recruit new athletes, mentor younger athletes in the program, and can also become certified coaches. They become part of the supportive community that gives back to others.
Who We Serve
Steve’s Club defines at-risk, underserved or disadvantaged youth as one or more of the following:
- Economically disadvantaged
- Out-of-school, including unemployed out-of-school youth
- In or aging out of foster care
- Homeless or runaway
- At-risk to leave secondary school without a diploma
- Former juvenile offenders or at-risk of delinquency
- Exposed to violence, abuse, gang activity, drugs, crime
All Steve’s Club athletes, coaches and volunteers strive to live by these principles. We use them to guide our actions and create the positive environment we envision.
