H. Wayne Huizenga Club in Palm City
Renovated in 2011 with a grant from the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation, the H. Wayne Huizenga Club in Palm City occupies the previous Martin County fire station. Its location makes it easily accessible to youth and teens for after-school programs including tutoring and mentoring.
Club members enjoy the use of a gymnasium, dance studio, learning and technology lab, large teaching kitchen, tutoring rooms, and a game room. Additionally, an organic garden surrounded by fruit trees is a major draw for the members. The garden provides an opportunity for members to learn more about food production and nutrition and have an attractive oasis for outside activities.
Certified teachers administer small-group literacy instruction to struggling readers in first through third grade. Pre and post-program assessments are conducted to measure youth success in each program.
This program teaches Club members the Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship.
