What we offer...

Programs and activities offered at the Youth Center help improve and maintain the physical, social, and mental well-being of youth to include year-round programs and wholesome leisure-time experiences and are appropriate for children ages 9-18, who are dependents of active duty/retired military, and DoD civilian employees.

Not only are there games, crafts, life skills, and sports, but youth can learn how to become meaningful members of their community. Some instructional classes are conducted, but this is contingent on the availability of instructors.

A diversified youth sports program offers flag football, basketball, and soccer leagues, along with a cheerleading program. Teens have their own area where they can come to interact with their peers, get homework and career assistance, or play video games. Special events are conducted periodically for both the pre-teens and teens. 

Other Services we offer:

  • "Safe Haven" for Youth Social Interaction
  • Field Trips
  • Youth Sports Program
  • Power Hour Educational Program
