All Club Stride programs and services are aligned with our mission to advocate against negative stereotypes in youth culture. Our programs and services are designed to inspire youth involvement, personal growth and community outreach. Teens can sign up to use our HotSpot after school study hub and get anchored to resources and activities for success, or connect to Hype 808 Radio, a portal for career development and expression that offers awesome internship opportunities. In addition, Club Stride organizes events and activities to reach youth and young adults, and stimulate their involvement in communities.
The organization was founded by Dr. Rhonda Renfro in response to a vision to build a strong moral fiber within youth culture to counteract negative stereotypes and create a framework for personal achievement.
