Way Club is a faith-based social club fostering the next generation of leaders in the Greater Philadelphia area. Targeting like-minded teenagers of all backgrounds, we aim to inspire our members to lead an intentional and purpose-driven lifestyle by meeting their recreational, developmental, and spiritual needs. This in turn will fuel our members to have a positive impact in their communities and beyond.
Way Club started as a simple dream for Founder and Executive Director, Monique Harrington. At 14-years old, she imagined having a local hangout, much like The Den in her favorite TV show Moesha, where her friends could laugh, learn, and grow together.
"There was a dance club for teenagers in my neighborhood where the inside was pitch black. I asked my dad if I could go and he said 'Absolutely not!' While I am grateful my parents were watching out for me, that experience stuck with me. I really just wanted a place to go hang out with my friends. That place, a safe space my parents would approve of, didn't exist," shares Monique.
Since then, Monique set out to hone her skills and network to create that space for teens in Philadelphia. She worked in the non-profit sector for over 15 years and has helped lead various church ministries for over 11 years. Before Way Club, she started Teen Cultured, a group that hosted recreational events for teens.
