In August 2009 a Bremen Club was opened within the school starting with 78 kids. In 2016 a capital campaign began and in 2018 the JoAnn and Leonard Isban Center for Youth was opened for members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Marshall County. With the ongoing support of the community the Boys & Girls Clubs of Marshall County has been able to operate the two sites since 2009, serving over 1,000 kids annually.
