Summary

Club Beyond® is the name used by Military Community Youth Ministries (MCYM) to identify its ministry with military high school and middle school-aged teens worldwide. Club Beyond staff and volunteers mentor teens 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 club meetings, Club Beyond means retreats, along with special activity nights, lock-ins, ski trips, summer camps and service projects. Club Beyond leaders also offer a weekly Bible study for those students who want to go deeper in their faith.

Club Beyond staff are vocational youth workers recruited from across the United States, usually from Young Life.

Purpose

Vision: Let every military brat believe.

The journey from adolescence to adulthood has never been easy. In every generation and in every place, teenagers have struggled to come to grips with their place in the world. They want to know if there is meaning to life in general and if their own lives are important. Among our nation's youth are some 500,000 teenagers whose parents and guardians have committed their lives to service with our armed forces. These students are scattered among overseas bases and installations in the United States.

At Club Beyond (as it is known to the kids), we believe that there is a great need to be available for these young people, to build meaningful, no-strings-attached relationships with them. We believe that one of the best ways to help military kids is to affirm them and be available to celebrate life with them. Toward this end, Club Beyond staff and volunteers seek to love teens unconditionally and provide a model of Christian hope in our military communities through weekly club and fun activities.


Mission statement

Celebrate life with Military Teens, introduce them to the Life Giver, and help them become more like Him.

History

During the 1960's and 70's two major global youth ministries, Young Life and Youth For Christ were reaching out to military teens with little consistent success. Recognizing the unique needs and stressors of military life, these two agencies joined forces to develop a model of ministry that reflects the specific and particular needs of US military communities and families. On July 29, 1980, leaders from both of these agencies met in Washington, D.C. and laid the foundation for what would become known as Club Beyond.

From that meeting, Club Beyond took shape and developed an ecumenical outreach that focused exclusively on middle school and high school aged children whose parents actively serve in the Armed Forces. Between 1980 and 1990 it grew from 2 programs to 18 communities in four European countries, plus the USA. During that decade Club Beyond reached out to over 10,000 students. The outreach would continue to grow worldwide as its success and impact among military communities became known.

Today Club Beyond serves in over 45 military installations around the world. As our country continues to defend the freedoms America stands for, Club Beyond seeks to continue to serve our troops by investing in the children who, because of the challenges they face, have the potential to become our resilient leaders of tomorrow.
