To inspire and enable the youth in our communities, especially those who need us most, to become caring and responsible individuals through guidance-oriented adult relationships and engagement in a variety of enriching activities within a safe environment.

A Safe Place:
The Club is a safe place where kids and teens can come to enjoy themselves and their friends while escaping from the dangers that may lie within their own neighborhood.

Opportunities:

A Full Schedule of Great Activities:
Games, tournaments, arts and crafts, dance, sports, leadership clubs, music, discussion groups, homework and tutoring help, and computer classes…just to name a few!

Outreach and Services for Teens:

The golf course is suitable for beginners and can be challenging for the very skilled player. The stone clubhouse sits 80 feet above the golf course and offers beautiful views of the golf course and canyon. The clubhouse was built during the Great Depression with stone that was quarried down by the Ogden River and is one of only 13 golf course clubhouses in the country that are recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. El Monte Golf Course has hosted the popular El Monte Four-Ball Tournament annually on July 24th since 1936.

School and community-based visual arts classes, workshops, projects.

The Utah based nonprofit Children’s Media Workshop produces substantive and sustainable change in a short period of time by working across the staff and curriculum using best learning and management practices. Using the 21st Century language of media, literacy is advocated in all its forms from language and mathematics to art and technology. The focus is on building authentic learning communities that are empowered to apply critical thinking and basic skills to the latest educational and societal realities.

As a group of highly dedicated educators and community builders we combine real-time classroom experience with collaborative team-building techniques that honor individual potential while capitalizing on our extensive backgrounds, from the beginnings of Sundance to having created the largest successful teacher training in US history, the Visual Learning Workshops.

Our basic premise: nothing is more fun than learning.
