Ministry Effectiveness

The Club Beyond program is exclusively focused on serving the approximately 300,000 teenaged children of active duty military families who are stationed at U.S. military installations worldwide. Through our staff and volunteers, we are creating a “Worldwide Safety Net” for America’s Military Teenagers to provide them with a regular and familiar program in which they can participate. 
MCYM is committed to pursuing meaningful measurements of the Club Beyond ministry across numerous dimensions.  One of those dimensions is our ongoing Teen and Parent surveys conducted mission-wide during specific events, such as the Europe’s annual camps, as well as across local ministry areas worldwide.  Random, voluntary surveys conducted have been compiled into the Survey Results. The results include over 2,100 teen and parent respondents with over 22% of respondents having a parent deployed within 12 months of the survey.
The survey confirms that Club Beyond is having a uniformly positive impact worldwide with no significant deviations between geographic areas, as well as consistent and improved results in comparison with previous years’ surveys.  The percentage responses to the questions below also align with the short narrative replies to the question, “…describe the impact that Club Beyond is having on you (your teen)”, which was overwhelmingly positive and provide greater levels of detail as to the impact Club Beyond is having on military teens, their parents, and their families worldwide.  The overall impact on these teens’ lives is truly profound as written out by them and their parents.  
All supporters of Club Beyond have a stake in the results displayed in the chart below.  The Club Beyond/MCYM team is grateful to all those who serve to achieve the impact on America’s Military Teenagers as shown below.
