Our community center offers a variety of programs for youth throughout the year, providing a positive environment where they can learn new skills and gain confidence.
After School Program
Youth from all walks of life face obstacles. But those who grow and learn in structured activities and have supervision are less likely to succumb to risky behaviors. Our after-school program engages youth to learn new skills and gain confidence through tutoring in a safe environment. We even provide transportation and dinner.
Tutoring and homework help is offered daily and focuses primarily on reading (using Mission Literacy) and math. We include pre-, mid- and post-tests to measure the child’s improvement during the school year.
Additionally, children participate in enrichment opportunities including cultural dance, computers, art, choir, structured gym activities, and character development.
The after school program runs weekdays during the school year from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Need a safe place to send your kids for the summer? Consider our Day Camp program. We provide a fun learning environment for your elementary age children weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The program includes tutoring, enrichment activities, physical fitness and community outings to local venues such as museums, zoos and parks.

Holistic Youth Program
The Holistic Youth program consists of three parts – character development, community development and artistic expression.

In 2011, the community center added competitive basketball, and since then we have been able to add baseball and softball programs. Teams that focus on learning good sportsmanship, character, self-esteem and respect, while also teaching fundamental skills and rules of the game. The program is run completely by experienced volunteer coaches to provide a safe, fun sports experience.
