GenerationOn Service Clubs are a great way to have fun, get involved in your community and make your mark on the world!
GenerationOn Service Clubs are led by middle and high school youth with support from an adult advisor. You can start a club with friends, at your school, at community or faith-based organizations, or at HandsOn Action Centers.
GenerationOn Clubs provide members with the opportunity to build life and leadership skills and to implement meaningful hands-on service projects, locally, nationally and globally.

What do generationOn Service Clubs do?
GenerationOn Service Clubs allow you to develop leadership skills while working towards improving your local and global communities. Members work together to choose meaningful and interesting projects to carry out and then document the projects’ impact and share their success stories through the generationOn website.
GenerationOn Service Clubs must complete at least two service projects and one survey per academic year in order to maintain their membership status. Clubs report on their service activity and are recognized for their hard work.
