Positive Role Models Make a Lasting Impact

Studies show that kids and teens with positive role models in their lives consistently demonstrate better behavior, stronger academic performance and higher self-esteem than those without similar influencers.

Our youth development programs offer the opportunity for young kids and teens to engage with positive adult mentors, as well as enjoy activities that build their character, enrich their minds, spark their creativity and help them learn how to become thriving adults. 

How We Help Empower Youth

Wednesday Night Kids Club  |  5-7 p.m.
Every Wednesday evening during the school year, kids in 1st grade through 12th grade participate in character building classes, offering them the opportunity to develop strong communication and leadership skills, grow their minds, and explore God's Word, all while having fun and connecting with their peers. We offer the following character-building classes:

  • Sunbeams - girls in first through fifth grades
  • Explorers - boys in first through fifth grades
  • Girl Guards - girls in sixth through twelfth grades
  • Rangers - boys in sixth through eighth grades

After the character building classes, kids enjoy a meal together and then burn off excess energy with recreation time in the gym. 

Licensed Childcare After School and During the Summer
The Salvation Army of Marshalltown is a licensed childcare facility, offering kids between first and sixth grades a safe place to enjoy activities during the summer and after school. Parents can enjoy peace of mind at work knowing their children are being well cared-for and supervised.
