Clubs

Getting involved is easy at York. Joining a club is one of the best ways to: 

  • meet new people
  • explore interests outside the classroom
  • be a leader
  • serve local communities

Our club line-up is varied, and driven each year by student interest. Inspired by something not on the list? Start a new club!

FUTURE AMERICAN ACTIVISTS

We believe that now is the time to get young Americans (non-citizens included) informed about the challenges they face as the future of this Republic, and to connect them to organizations who share their passion in the interest of creating a more prosperous, and Just community, nation, and world.
Our mission is to help students of different backgrounds and philosophies become civically engaged, and we do this in a number of ways. The first and most prominent of which is our activism fair.

MODEL UN

Model UN club is an opportunity for students to learn more about international relations and current events by debating and attending conferences at Stanford, Berkeley, and Santa Teresa High School. Club members have the chance to act out the roles of UN diplomats and work with other students to resolve global issues. MUN is a great way for students to improve their public speaking, debate, and diplomacy skills as well as increase their knowledge about global and current affairs.

PROJECT LIGHT CLUB

The club would help support the Remera Mbogo Orphanage in Rwanda through doing local fundraisers and also send love by writing letters, sending gifts, and facetiming them. The club would decide on one area to focus improving each year and organize a series of events (including both fundraising and learning about culture). The Remera Mbogo Orphanage took in many children during the Rwandan genocide and the lasting effects from the genocide are still causing many more children to enter today.

Q AND A CLUB

Discusses issues facing teens today, specifically involving gender identity and stereotyping, to promote tolerance and understanding.

ROBOTICS CLUB

Builds, designs, and programs robots for different competitions and activities at school. No previous knowledge of programming or designing robots is necessary.

In 2014, a group of York students founded Deus Ex Machina, the school’s first FRC team. Our team won the Rookie All-Star Award and advanced to the international championship in St. Louis, Missouri. Since all but two members graduated, 2015 was akin to a second rookie year for York. Fortunately, recruitment from all grade levels in 2016 allowed us to build up experience to ensure the continued existence of the team. When the 2017 FRC season started, returning students made up nearly half our team. At the end of our 2017 season we received the GM Industrial Design Award at the Silicon Valley Regional, one of only two design awards given at arguably the most competitive regional event in the country.
We are preparing for the 2018 FRC season with 12 experienced, returning students. Thanks to the assistance from two helpful mentors (Dr. Tim Stanton and Duane Davis, both from NPS), we can provide new team members the opportunity to participate in a multidisciplinary effort that goes well beyond the building of a robot. Consisting of numerous subgroups—management and fundraising, graphic and web design, engineering, programming, and more—the team not only constructs a working robot, but also gains invaluable real-world skills. In addition to participating in a competition, we are learning to collaborate—perhaps the most important skill gained throughout the course of the entire season—and to work closely with other clubs in our region to advance the aims of FIRST.
