The Outreach team believes that our centers are more than a drop-in recreation center for the youth in our community. Our team’s focus is building positive relationships between adults and youth through a variety of enriching and educational activities. Some of our activities include; billiards, group games, arts & crafts, and cooking projects with a nutritional emphasis. While these activities are fun and action packed, they are intended to teach social responsibility, relational boundaries, and life skills that support a positive self image and interest in education as enter adulthood. Our staff and programs support the YMCA’s mission to promote Christian values to the youth in our community.
