Knowledge is a ticket out of poverty

By the end of the 4th grade, African-American, Hispanic and low-income students are already two years behind grade level.

By the time they reach the 12th grade, the same kids are four years behind.

Children in poverty have greater learning challenges

Children who live below the poverty line are 1.3 times more likely to develop mental delays or learning disabilities than those who don't live in poverty

How we help empower youth

The Salvation Army operates youth programs in low and moderate income neighborhoods across the Willmar area. These programs provide children with a safe place to play and learn in a supervised and constructive environment. The Salvation Army will continue to make an effort in the local communities to provide these learning opportunities.

Youth Ministry Programs
Youth girls from ages 7 to 16 can attend our Girls Club program every Monday starting at 4:30 p.m. Girls learn about God’s love and participate in activities ranging from Zoomba and swimming to cooking lessons and games. A warm meal is also served. To help us plan for the meal, please call 320-235-2033 in advance to reserve a spot. There is no cost.

Character Building Program
Our Kids Club program is held for both boys and girls Monday nights beginning at 4 p.m. and lasting until 6:30 p.m. A warm meal is served for participants. In this program, children are challenged to earn badges when they learn a new skill or complete a project.
