About Club BeyondWhere Friends, Fun and Faith Connect
Club Beyond® is the name used by MCYM to identify its ministry with military high school and middle school aged kids worldwide. Club Beyond staff and volunteers love young people and are available to journey with them through the hard challenges of adolescence, providing positive role models and exhibiting Christ-like behavior.
In addition to weekly 90 minute club meetings, Club Beyond also means retreats (usually one per semester), along with special activity nights, lock-ins, ski trips, summer camps, and work service projects. Club Beyond leaders also offer weekly Bible study sessions for those students who want to go deeper in their spiritual development and study of the Bible. All of these activities are well chaperoned, with high ratios of volunteer leaders for kids in attendance.
Club Beyond Staff are vocational youth workers recruited from across the U.S.A., usually from the ranks of Young Life or Youth for Christ. These staff are assigned for service with MCYM by their parent organizations for an initial period of 2 years (staff interns) or 3 years (Community Directors and others). Staff can renew their service with MCYM beyond their initial period of service upon mutual consent of MCYM and their parent agency.
