Girls Club is a program that exists to provide group mentoring for girls aged 7-18. Girls Club is a safe space through which girls can learn, develop relationships, and ultimately gain skills they can carry with them throughout their lives. The ultimate goal of Girls Club is to prepare the girls of Clinton Peabody to be successful academically, emotionally, and socially. Activities performed at Girls Club range from field trips to the St. Louis History Museum, to healthy relationship workshops, to art projects.

Boys club is a program that connects Wash U students with young men in Clinton Peabody in the hopes of fostering personal growth and creating a support system that these young men can depend upon. We strive to create a sense of community in which all members of the club feel safe to talk about issues that may be prevalent in their lives, including issues around violence, masculinity, and self-care. Through sports, arts, crafts, weekly adventures and field trips, we provide a consistent outlet for any problems our members may be facing, while also exposing them to various employment opportunities and educational endeavors.
Boys Club meets every Saturday from 1-3pm and is open to boys 10 and older.
The mentoring program pairs City Faces students with a Wash U mentor who meets with them weekly throughout the year. The mission of the program is to foster deep personal connections between mentor and mentee to create a strong support system for City Faces students. Mentor pairs may attend some group field trips, but generally meet one-on-one for an activity specifically aimed at the interests of the mentee.
Mentor/Mentee pairs meet weekly at a pre-determined time that is convenient for both. Registration at the beginning of the school year is required to be matched with a mentor. Mentees must be at least 7 years old.
