Colin L. Powell Leadership Club

Macfarland Middle School StudentsThe Colin Powell Leadership Club is a vibrant part of St. John’s Church community outreach.  It operated continuously at Macfarland Middle School in Washington D.C. since 1998, until Macfarland closed. We currently run the Colin Powell Leadership Club at Raymond Education Campus, a public school in northwest Washington, D.C.  The Club’s purpose is to instill enthusiasm for learning, teach leadership and responsibility, and help students set positive goals.  General Colin Powell, a St. John’s parishioner, directed its creation and actively participates in the program.

Club members are 5th through 8th Graders who have been recommended by their teachers.  The Club emphasizes high expectations for academic and personal success and fosters positive relationships between Club members and St. John’s participants.

On Wednesday afternoons throughout the school year, tutors from St. John’s practice reading and math skills with the students, and lead activities to reinforce knowledge of history, science, civics, and geography.  Periodically, the middle school students join up with our EYC for an ice skating party, St. John’s Christmas pageant and party, and bowling or movie events. 

A Summer Enrichment Program for Club members is held over six Saturday mornings at the Church. The focus here is on enhancing academic skills and offering enrichment in art, science, writing, and problem-solving in a elaxed atmosphere.  A special class has been created for former Macfarland students, focusing on post-high school options and the college application process.  Breakfast and lunch are provided by members of the parish.

St. John’s Church awards scholarships to qualified Club members to enhance and encourage their college-preparation. Since the beginning of the program, 16 scholarship students have attended Archbishop Carroll or St. John’s College Preparatory High Schools.  Adult mentors are assigned to these students to guide them through their high school years and the college admissions process.

High school students and adults who are members of the parish are encouraged to participate, on a regular or occasional basis, in this rewarding community outreach effort. Participation can include:

  • Providing a snack
  • Leading an activity
  • Acting as a tutor
  • Serving as a mentor
  • Chaperoning an event
