- The Pillar Club is a club that is designed to provide support to teens through encouragement, accountability and high moral standard living. It is open to any teen that would like to join but has predominantly received teens that are completing and/or have completed community service hours via mandated Santa Clara County Juvenile Probation. Teens are placed as buddies to individuals with disabilities and/or are helpers in student teaching, life lessons and more; these lives are being impacted and changed via their service thru an empathy experience They have formed tangible friendships in class and a compassion for the disabled. They also form new perspectives of their own circumstances and life choices. The goal of The Pillar Club is to provide an environment that challenge and support an atmosphere free from drugs, sex, alcohol, wrong music and negative attitude. A huge emphasis has been made to set a standard to return and complete high school (and or attain G.E.D.), attend college, university and/or training programs, attain responsible work and continue to community service. We encourage teens to attempt new things, share and express their experiences and to and pursue any calling they wish.
