Youth Programs

Because Children Deserve Every Chance for Success

What is the difference between a child that grows up to be a healthy, independent, contributing member of our community and a child who doesn’t? 

A safe, stable, and nurturing environment. Where a child ends up typically has everything to do with where they began. All children have risk factors and protective factors. At the Youth and Family Center, we work to help strengthen the protective factors, and ensure that the risk factors don’t dictate a child’s future. Our approach is designed to increase the skills, resources, and support local children and parents need to overcome challenges.

At the Youth and Family Center, we provide programs and recreational activities in a safe, stable, and nurturing environment that improve first and second chances for success, so all children can have a bright future.

After School Program

Learning continues After the Bell at the Youth and Family Center. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing and engaging learning environment for children in the community. With low student-to-teacher ratios and experienced and loving staff, we are committed to not only caring for youth, but also their families. We believe a quality After the Bell learning experience decreases the risk of youth becoming involved in unproductive behaviors and sets the tone for their future success.

 

At the Youth and Family Center we believe that:

  1. Building kids’ strengths leads to long term success
  2. Children learn best through play and exploration
  3. Family involvement is key to a child’s success

Providing educational and recreational experiences comes naturally to us. Our dedicated staff have years of experience in afterschool settings, traditional classrooms, and as leaders in school systems.

After the Bell each student receives:

  • Love, respect, and understanding
  • A healthy snack and a hot meal
  • Homework help
  • Recreational activities
  • Technology classes
  • Drama, Dance and Art
  • and A whole lot more!
