MISSION AND HISTORY
Our mission is "To Empower Youth to Win in Every Area of Their Lives." To devote the necessary resources to ensuring that all young people are able to build new skills, make contributions, and become a productive part of a community and feel "in control" over their future.
We will also provide an atmosphere of support and guidance to ensure a sense of competence, a sense of usefulness, a sense of belonging and a sense of empowerment.
All children are loved, healthy, confident, eager to learn, and nurtured by their families, caretakers, and the community. We will also provide an atmosphere of support and guidance to ensure a sense of competence, a sense of usefulness, a sense of belonging and a sense of empowerment.
We have three general objectives that support our mission:
Our center will offer a range of high-quality educational and recreational services during the youth's out of school time.
The students who participate in these services regularly will demonstrate educational and social benefits and exhibit positive behavioral changes.
Our center will work with families to help to provide that sustained support and strengthen family ties.
