We believe that kids should be involved with positive activities from an early age. And that's exactly what our Youth Achievers program does. Kids ages Kindergarten through 7th grade develop social skills and self esteem while making new friends. Our culturally-based program includes educational field trips, workshops on a variety of topics, our spring break trip and more. Our Youth Achievers Program are on Saturdays beginning at 10 am and go until noon.


Join us for an information fair to learn all about what our programs have to offer.
