Youth Programs

We strive to help our youth develop in heart, body, and mind so that they can make positive choices and succeed in school, at home, and in our community. We emphasize the importance of personal growth as well as academic success so that our youth can become strong and well-rounded individuals. Youth in our programs benefit from a positive and structured environment that includes homework assistance, arts and crafts projects, physical activities, personal development group activities, as well as recreation time for board and video games. In addition, we provide a free daily meal for each youth enrolled in our programs through our partnership with Kid’s Cafe.
