For more than 70 years, these clubs have improved the self-esteem and leadership skills of participating children through helping others. Chapter activities in communities across the nation that provide social and volunteer opportunities for members of all ages. Member benefits that provide assistance to our member families in good times and times of need. Some of our benefits include college scholarships, aid for orphaned members, discounts on prescription drugs and financial assistance to cover life insurance premiums for members who are victims of natural disasters or experience serious health problems. Youth educational programs, which are free educational classroom curriculum programs for schools and youth groups.
