Jefferson County Unit
Charles Town, WV
Chartered in 1997, the Jefferson County Club was founded by community members with the desire to provide programming for young people in their community. Opening with just 12 members, the club's first home was Zion Episcopal Church. From these humble beginnings, the Club relocated to 334 North Lawrence Street, where for nearly a year, the club operated out of a trailer on the grounds until the new facility renovations were completed in 1998.
Growing from the original 12 members, the Jefferson County Club now serves hundreds of youth each year.
