Club Live is a club for middle school students that meets on middle school campuses. This group of youth build their leadership skills while increasing their social network and implementing community change projects.
Club Live has programs on the campuses of Bidwell Junior High School, Biggs Middle School, Central Middle School, Chico Junior High School, Ishi Hills Middle School, Palermo Middle School, Sierra Junior High School, and Sycamore Middle School.
Bidwell Junior High School
Meeting Times: Thursdays at lunch in room 501 during both 7th & 8th grade lunches
EP Project: Bidwell Junior High School Club Live is implementing Merchant Committed, a program where officers and club members educate merchants in the community about underage drinking in Butte County. The CL officers went to Star Liquor Market and educated the merchant and remodeled the store by placing Merchant Committed stickers on boxes of alcohol. They plan on going to two more stores to educate more merchants and reduce youth access to alcohol.
School Climate Project: “2018 Bidwell Shoot for the Stars.” During both lunches the members of Bidwell Club Live recently passed out stars to students for them to write their 2018 new year’s resolution, or goal for the year. The stars are currently displayed along a hallway on Bidwell’s campus for students to see and help remind them of their goals and aid them in achieving those goals. Check out the photos below!
Next, the Club Live members are going to “Spread the Love” by offering free Valentines Day Grams to all the students. Some of these grams will be premade and others will be blank for the students to express their creativity.
Club Live members will continue implementing monthly school climate projects, with the goal to unify the school and make students feel more connected with one another.
Bidwell Club Live is run by Emily Houghton. To learn more about CL on Bidwell’s campus, or to see how you can get involved, contact Emily Houghton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Biggs Elementary School
Meeting Times: Thursdays at 11:30am Mr. Gates classroom, in Room 22
EP Project: Club Live Officers implemented Merchant Committed by visiting two local stores in Biggs and graded the store using the Merchant Committed Report Card as a guide to educate, and demonstrate how media and beverage companies target youth in alcohol advertisements, to the placement of alcoholic beverages. Then they went over the report card with the store owner/employee and explained the grade the store was given and why.
School Climate Project: Club Live officers and chapter members wanted to spread the holiday cheer this year to classmates before going on winter break. The offers and chapter members decided to do a Holiday Bag Tag for their school climate project. During lunch, Club Live set up a booth with festive holiday bag tags. Students wrote compliments on the back of the tags then passed them to their peers to tie on their backpacks. Christmas music was also played for everyone to enjoy!

EP Project: Ishi’s officers recently visited two local Oroville stores, the Circle K and Beacon, and graded both using the Merchant Report Card to see if they were in compliance and if they were “youth-friendly” in their layout. It was a great experience and the next step will be re-visiting the stores to present the report card and provide Merchant Education to the store’s owners, managers, and employees. Stay tuned!
School Climate Project: Ishi held their first school climate project event on December 8th during lunch providing an opportunity for students to send positive messages to each other via “Holiday Grams”. The theme for that month was “Spread a little warmth” so Club Live Officers and Members also served hot chocolate to students! It was a huge success with over 200 grams being sent out to students before the holiday break!
