Want to make a true difference in the lives of children and teens in our community and attend a GREAT party? Then join us in supporting Club Esteem through a Rock the Casbah Sponsorship!

Club Esteem’s mission is to inspire youth from economically disadvantaged communities to embrace the highest standards of academic and personal excellence—instilling in each child a desire to learn, to serve, and to accept challenges. Club Esteem challenges students to dream, hope, and believe they can reach their full potential and accomplish their goals with determination, tenacity, fortitude, and hard work--no matter what circumstances they face.

Focusing on academic and personal success, Club Esteem students receive tutoring, homework help, SAT/ACT test prep, and a variety of enrichment activities including dance, art, drama, music, STEM programs and more. Club Esteem works! Last school year, 84% of Club Esteem students made honor roll; 96% of high school students had a 3.0 GPA or higher, and 100% of Seniors received Scholarships and will be attending college this Fall.

Club Esteem's annual fundraiser Rock the Casbah is a great party that raises funds to support Club Esteem programs throughout the year. Rock the Casbah features a fabulous dinner, decadent desserts, live music by Blue Stone Circle, dancing, silent and live auctions, and much more.   Sponsorships are available through August 5 and a limited quantity of individual tickets will go on sale for $150 each on August 15, 2016.
