Youth programs

 The Salvation Army of Evansville.

What are the youth programs at the Salvation army?

 

CCYC (Christ Centered Youth Center)  This program is a afterschool program when school is in session. The goal of the program is to impact each childs life in different important areas. We have electives in music, bible education, physical education, and tutoring for students homework. In addition e serve a snack and dinner to those attending. We launched this program because we understand the importance of our youth and teens and that they are the future. We want to make a difference and help give the youth a hand up as they grow into adulthood. Currently these programs are on hold until the start of the next school year.

Sunbeams, Girl Guards, Moonbeams, Boy's Adventure Corps-- These are "Character Building" programs that are held on Thursday nights from 4:30-7:00 and are available to Elementary up to High school age. This program includes, lessons, sports, activities, and a meal. We focus on instructing the kids on biblical truth and help them develop character traits that will benefit them as they grow and become adults.

Summer Camp-- Hidden Falls Camp (Near Bedford Indiana (Pinhook, IN) Our summer camps are available June-July and are over night camps at our conference center. These are week long camps that offer activities and learning opportunities in a variety of subjects. each week of camp through the summer offers a different focus, from age based camps, to subject specific camps such as music and sports. There's a camp for every interest! Applications are taken for these camps in April and normally fill up very quickly. There is a small fee associated with saving a spot for your child, however scholarships are available to those in need. We want to make sure every child has a chance to experience camp!

Stuff the Bus

Every year The Salvation Army in partnership with Walmart stores gather school supplies to help support local schools, teachers, and students! In Evansville we have also partnered with Teacher Locker to help distributed the supplies in a very efficient and effective way. Please see their website located here: https://evscfoundation.org/teacher-locker/ This allows supplies to be distributed throughout the year instead of once in the fall. In addition we partnered with DCS in Warrick county to direct Warrick County collected supplies to families in need in their system. We strongly believe that donations and support should stay in the county they are collected in and this is another example of how we are making that a reality.

Stuff the Bus 2021 we collected almost 8,000 items and distributed them the Teacher Locker and DCS for distribution. All of this was done with less than 30 volunteers and 80 man hours of work. Vanderburgh and Warrick county once again poured out their generosity and gave in abundance. Our collections exceeded all of the other locations across the state. Mainly thanks to the local walmart managers who worked VERY closely with us. 

It shows us that with a little effort and some extra hands and hours from volunteers we can make a huge difference!
