Join Us



A 501c3 non-profit organization was established in 2008.   There was a need to do something in Beaufort, South Carolina to create some positive alternatives and try to change the stereotypical images of the young men and women in the community.  The goal of the Extra Mile Club is to build character, self-esteem, leadership skills, confidence, and respect for self and others.
