Programs of Service
Exchange’s Program of Service is divided into the categories of Americanism, Community Service, Youth Programs and our national project, Child Abuse Prevention.
Exchange Clubs work to promote pride in country, respect for the flag and other American symbols, appreciation of our freedoms and the costs of those freedoms. Exchange has taken on the responsibility of passing this knowledge to America’s next generation through its Americanism programs. These include: The Freedom Shrine, One Nation Under God, Get Out The Vote, Proudly We Hail and GiveAKidAFlagToWave, Adopt-a-Unit/Family.
America’s young people are the country’s most precious resource. Exchange sponsors many activities designed to benefit, award and develop our nation’s youth. These programs include: Young Citizenship Award, EXCEL Clubs, Youth of the Month/Year Award and A.C.E. Award. Click here for samples of youth essays.
Community Service is the lifeline of Exchange. Exchange Clubs across the country spend countless hours and dollars improving their communities each year. All of these activities share a common goal of serving and promoting our communities. These programs include: Crime Prevention, Fire Prevention, The Book of Golden Deeds Award, Service to Seniors and Law Enforcement/Firefighter Recognition.
