Salesmanship Club Youth and Family Centers
Founded in Dallas in 1920, Salesmanship Club Youth and Family Centers is well-known for its work with troubled and at-risk kids and their families. Our focus on strong, healthy relationships extends into education. Our J. Erik Jonsson Community School demonstrates the benefits of early intervention by partnering with low-income families to offer an enriched, engaging elementary school education for children from age 3- 5th grade. For the last three years, the Jonsson School has met Texas Education Agency criteria to be recognized as an Exemplary School. Through our therapeutic services, families come to us to discuss a variety of issues including challenges at school, conflict and communication problems, depression/anxiety, divorce and blended families, sexual, physical and emotional abuse. In addition, Salesmanship Club is a dynamic, learning organization with a value for training, research and innovation. The Science Goes to Camp program extends our reach into urban public schools in Dallas. A hands-on earth and life science curriculum is shared with 4th and 5th grade students and their teachers, culminating in a day of learning at the Club's 1,400 acre camp in East Texas. We host a steady stream of graduate-level interns and pre-service teachers as well as national/ international speakers for community training events catering to educators and mental health professionals.
