    Jr. Staff is a summer service program with The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club of Kerrville.  Through participation in Jr. Staff, teens develop interpersonal skills, a strong work ethic and a sense of community engagement while experiencing on-the-job Club work shadowing and assisting adult staff. 

    We will also be incorporating aspects of what used to be our Teen Academy program.  Twice a week, we will meet for educational experiences in areas like auto maintenance, personal finances, cooking and more!

    It’s not all hard work!  Jr. Staff get to participate in swimming, field trips and other activities with the Club kids; plus, they get a free Kroc Membership for themselves for the duration of the Summer.
