In 1860, three women in Hartford Connecticut believed that the boys they saw lollygagging in the streets should have something better to do with their time. So they made sure they did. They started a club that gave the boys constructive, community-based activities that helped forge their characters. In the 150 years since, this idea has spread from a community cause to a national sensation, with that first club inspiring more than 1,140 independent organizations to form since. Today, Boys & Girls Clubs of America reach more than 4,000 communities, giving children—including the child versions of spokespeople Denzel Washington and Jennifer Lopez—positive outlets for their spare time.

The Clubs' programs touch on everything from volunteer-service days to bake sales and zoo field trips. Yet no matter what the specific activity, participating students gain a connection with and respect for their community, enhancing their communication skills and self-esteem. The organization also focuses on specific goals through tailored programs, helping build leadership skills, artistic talents, or the knowledge necessary to compete in the job market.

For more than a century, the National Audubon Society has helped connect people with nature, thanks to a national network of more than 500 community-based nature centers and chapters. Audubon continues to engage millions of people in conservation action that protects and restores the environment through its education, advocacy, and scientific programs.

Many might associate Audubon with birds, and rightfully so—the conservation organization has supported efforts that protect and restore their local habitats, along with helping implement policies that safeguard birds across the United States and the Americas. However, Audubon also continues to work to conserve and restore the natural ecosystems of all wildlife, for the benefit of the earth and all creatures in it.

Specializing in APHA and AQHA horses, the breeders at Coquat Ranch extend their equine knowledge to the general public through lessons, birthday parties, and trail rides across their wildlife-rich property. Beginner lessons acquaint novices with safe practices and the essentials of riding, centering on mounting, grooming, walking, and other basic topics. Building on this foundation, intermediate and advanced lessons delve into more advanced activities, such as moving laterally and riding around obstacles.

Once comfortable in the saddle, rider can sign up for a trail ride across the ranch's hundreds of acres, where they can spot wildlife ranging from deer and wild hogs to sandhill cranes amid the salt water marshes and brush country. Young riders can also enjoy time with animals through birthday and pony painting parties, when they'll have the chance to cover horses in non-toxic paint and ask for their definition of art.

In the eight years since the start of Local Furniture Outlet, the cherished baby business of Mr. Aaron Masterson has grown up fast—from a 2,000-square-foot metal warehouse to four locations and more than 80,000 combined square feet of furniture. But the success didn't go to Aaron’s head. The proud father still traverses showrooms in casual flip-flops, enforcing a no-competition policy so that loyal staff members don’t feel pressured to make a quota. The stripped-down showrooms allow for lower price tags on direct-from-manufacturer brands such as Ashley, Simmons, and Crown Mark. Patrons are invited to peruse dining-room, living-room, and bedroom sets—or “kick the tires,” as Aaron puts it—without the pushy-push of larger retailers, who may use turkey legs to reward team members for sales.

Mary Helen Johnston of M&J Photography strives to capture all aspects of her subjects’ personalities, nabbing senior portraits, wedding snapshots, family profiles, and sports-team photos. Before shoots, the photographer guides clients through a complimentary consultation over the phone or in the studio, during which models-to-be can plot hair, makeup, and cravat placement. Helen's photo shoots typically last from 30 to 60 minutes, and outdoor shoots usually take place two hours before sunset, when natural light is at its most flattering. M&J Photography can also take motion pictures with an array of videography services that capture images and emotional tenor alike, thereby creating a keepsake more potent than cave hieroglyphics depicting a prehistoric wedding reception.
