What is the Young Leader Program?
The Young Leader Program (YLP) is for kids who are interested in gaining experience in leadership and communication on top of the social aspect that Kids Club provides.

The expectation is that members of YLP will attend exclusive, weekly training sessions provided by Steady Buckets and apply those learnings by hosting sessions of their own around whatever they're most passionate about.

YLP members will have the opportunity to interact with other kids intersted in becoming better leaders and act as a mentor to other members of Kids Club.

Frequently Asked Questions
When Will Kids Club Start?
Sessions have already kicked off and will run each week with the exception of the weeks of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years.
Can I join later?
Yes. You can join the program at any time. We know that these times call for unprecedented flexibility, so we want to make this program as modular as possible to fit your changing needs.
How many days will Kids Club run?
Every child has a different situation with school. Some will be meeting in-person, some will be at home, some may have a hybrid of both. That is why Kids Club will be running 5 days a week from Monday through Friday with flexibility for you to join only on the days that work for you.
Is this intended to replace school?
No. COA Kids Club is intended as a supplemental program to whatever school programs your child is currently enrolled in. We will be focusing on adding additional enrichment through extra-curriculars, physical activity, socialization and leadership.
What does this cost?
COA Kids Club is free for all Perks at Work members.
Can I invite my child's friends?
Yes. Anyone can sign up for Perks at Work and join Kids Club. Once their friends are on the platform they will be able to connect with them through the Social Circle under Kids Club.
Can I change my passions?
Yes. You can edit the selection of your kid(s) passions at any time after registration.
What does the Young Leaders Program entail?
Kids that want to sign up for the Young Leaders program will gain access to additional "Young Leaders Only" classes focused on leadership training and communication. Young Leaders will also have the opportunity to teach and mentor other, younger, Kids Club participants in their own passion areas.
Why did you partner with Steady Buckets?
Next Jump, the company behind Perks at Work, has had a relationship with the non-profit Steady Buckers’ Founder and Head Coach Macky Bergman for many years coaching kids of our employees. Having coached 10,000+ kids over his 15 years of youth coaching experience—Macky has developed tremendous expertise in how children operate and interact with each other and their parents.

Coach Macky has also pioneered leadership within his own organization—creating a Young Leaders Program and Council which allows kids to take on more than just skill building & sport—but also help them gain experience with communication and life skills that will help set them up for success beyond the basketball court.
