Boys and Girls Club of Schenectady
The Teen Empowerment and Mentoring (TEAM) Program serves students in Schenectady who are at-risk of dropping out of school. TEAM’s mission is to empower students to develop character, competence, and resilience through structured relationships with caring, positive adults and provides students with fun, positive activities, as well as college and career exploration field trips. In addition, TEAM utilizes an incentive program to encourage students to increase grades in core areas and to reduce incidences of tardiness, unexcused absences, and both in-school and out-of-school-suspensions.
