By the end of the 4th grade, African-American, Latino, 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.

"The goal-setting class really showed me how to create a plan to succeed and reach my dream."

The Salvation Army's programs help motivate, encourage and empower youth to be the best they can be and to seek out ways to reach their goals.

The Salvation Army empowers youth in our community through:

After-School Programs
The Salvation Army provides after-school programming to give youth and teens a safe place to complete homework, learn new skills and relax with their friends. The program offers tutoring, mentoring, life skills programming in seven languages, exercise, and work in a computer lab. For more information, call 815-227-0635.

Teen Center
In partnership with the YMCA of Rock River Valley, the Teen Center at The Salvation Army Rockford Tabernacle Corps Community Center provides a safe environment for middle school and high school students to participate in intramural sports, visit with friends, and learn positive life skills.

Weekly scout-style and mentoring programs are offered at our Corps Community Centers and designed to support youth and teens as they navigate their world and grow into adulthood.
