We're excited to kick off our partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sonoma Valley by co-hosting a supportive, socially-distanced environment where high school students can come both during and after the school day (8:30 - 4:30, M-F) to have your needs met while navigating this school year's distance learning.  We offer:

  • friendly staff eager to help in any way
  • calm, quiet environment conducive to concentration
  • high speed internet
  • plenty of electrical charging outlets
  • snacks
  • cold, filtered water
  • refrigerator, microwave, and ovens for storing and heating up your lunch
  • spaced-apart workstations that are sanitized multiple times a day
  • indoor air-conditioned space for 14 students, with HEPA air filters running
  • shaded outdoor work areas (when air quality allows) for 20 students
  • the opportunity to interact with your peers in real life!
  • headphones, masks, phone chargers, and Chromebooks if you forget to bring your own
  • printing and scanning
  • music and good vibes during breaks
  • coming soon:  Friday hot lunches--you can learn to cook with us or just share a meal together!

After-school Activities:

We also offer the following programs during our after-school program block: 

College & Career Exploration
Free college and trade school tours (virtual or in person) throughout the year as well as workshops designed to prepare you for life after high school. We partner with the Sonoma Valley High School College and Career Center to offer multiple Financial Aid and College Application workshops.

Aside from the college opportunities we provide, we also have many opportunities for job exploration. Through our job site tours and job coaches we give you the chance to think about future careers.

Keystone Club - Leadership for All
Our Club is all about leadership values and finding your voice. That's why we have our own leadership program that meets once a week at our Club to find ways to better our community. We host activities for community partners, volunteer at special events, and volunteer with a variety of other local nonprofit organizations.

Operation Bicycle: Bike repair clinics for teens
Professional mechanics from our community bike shop will train you to fix your own flat tires, tune up your bikes, or even earn a free donated bicycle by learning to repair it yourself. 

Ready to Work
This series of highly interactive, engaging workshops targeted for teens is taught by industry professionals. The classes focus on preparation for the working world and cover topics ranging from general employment behavior to advanced networking skills. This course is a prerequisite for both of TSS's paid work experience opportunities.

Completion of all workshop components results in a certificate of completion that is recognized by employers throughout Sonoma Valley--it'll give you a leg up if you're trying to land a job.

Volunteer Opportunities & Community Engagement
There will be twice weekly opportunities to volunteer to cook at the Lovin' Oven for Sonoma Overnight Support, a local nonprofit that serves our community's homeless and hungry population. We are also starting an organic garden on site that you can help with and learn what it takes to grow your own produce. If you are looking for hours for, or support with a Senior Project, hours for a class, community service, or anything else, our staff can help find the right opportunity for you!
