The extra mile club


The Extra Mile Club of the Lowcountry, a 501c3 non-profit organization, was established in 2008 as a response to a need for positive alternatives for the youth in Beaufort County.  The goal of the Extra Mile Club is to build character, self-esteem, leadership skills, confidence, and respect for self and others through positive youth empowerment and mentoring programs.
